What an Olympic Games this has been.

It is South Korea’s first time hosting the Winter Olympics, and it has not been boring. First, North Korea agreed to participate in the Games.

Interestingly enough,  he assumed a strong stance against kneeling during the National Anthem in the NFL.

With a thrilling double-overtime win at Marietta on Saturday, the 24th-ranked ONU women’s basketball team clinched their fourth straight OAC regular season championship. Now, they must pivot quickly to the OAC Tournament, which will likely pose as a ‘must-win’ situation for the Polar Bears.
