This week, three ONU teams will play for OAC Tournament trophies. The 13th-ranked women’s soccer team will look to win their first OAC Tournament title in five years, the 18th-ranked volleyball team will try to win their second straight tournament, and the men’s soccer team will attempt to pull off an upset or two to make it back to their third consecutive tournament final.

While anything could happen during Championship Week, one thing’s certain: what happens this week will definitely have an impact on these teams’ chances of making it into the NCAA Tournament.

Dean McNeil’s hair is much longer now.

Dark brown tufts poke out of his pink The 1975 hat -- “does this one work? I can wear an ONU one if you want,” he asks me before we take the portrait photo for this story. “That one’s just fine,” I say -- and he now has a shadowy beard that he strokes when he likes.

When he likes.

That’s the thing. Dean McNeil does what he likes now.

4 Years of Memories, 30 Years to Forget, 1 Weekend to Remember

Oct 12, 2017 - Comments: 0

Homecoming, a time when alumni travel back to polar bear country and reflect on the old times. To help them remember their “college days” several alumni even revisit their favorite spot on campus, allowing them to reminisce what was and what currently is.

Lorrie “Campbell” Bianco was an alumnus from the class of 1987, who was celebrating her 30 years out of college. Although many of her classmates that she personally knew were not able to make it back for Homecoming, it didn’t stop Bianco from reflecting back on the memories that were made 30 years ago.

Heading into this season, the Ohio Northern women’s soccer team had goals. Lofty ones.

They wanted to win the OAC regular season for the second straight year, and were predicted to do so easily by conference coaches in this year’s preseason poll (they received all nine first-place votes). They wanted to win the OAC Tournament after losing in the finals the last two seasons, and they wanted to make it back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in five years.
