Young student athletes learn to grow

Young student athletes learn to grow By Marlene GonzalezBridge contributing writerPublished Friday, Sept. 10, 2021 Becoming an adult is part of life for everyone, but each person switches to adulthood differently. Some are surrounded by family and others learn on their own. “I moved out at 18 years old and was homesick for a while,” Texas A&M International University freshman basketball forward Ally Winnen said. “I missed my family, my twin sister and my pets back home.” Originally from Westlake, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, Winnen always knew basketball would give her the opportunity to study away from home after graduating high school. In 2020, she was named Second Team All-State and All-District, as well as 2020 Regional Player of the Year and Lorain County Ms. Basketba...

Women set up a challenging schedule By David SolisBridge contributing writerPublished Friday, Sept. 10, 2021 After a successful 2020-2021 season for the TAMIU women’s basketball program, teammates seek to improve through a tougher schedule. Coach Nate Vogel has been adamant in playing tough competition year in and year out. This upcoming season may be the perfect time to add Division I opponents and challenge the Dustdevils early in the season. “It’s a lot easier to schedule tougher opponents when you’ve had success. Last year, we beat TAMIU-CC and Weber State University in back-to-back games—both Division I programs,” Vogel wrote in an email. “So, we want to test ourselves early on against bigger schools to prepare us for conference games.” Having to replace Nicole Heyn, w...

Basketball in the time of COVID-19 By Troi LucasBridge contributing writerPublished Monday, Oct. 26, 2020 Uncertainty looms across the Dustdevils basketball court this season. Texas A&M International University athletes were previously told their season will be postponed until Spring 2021. Basketball players, in particular, now deal with a longer pre-season and more protocols due to the effects of COVID-19. The athletes were allowed back on campus on Aug. 24. A select few decided to “opt out” this season. Some chose to focus on school, while others felt uncomfortable with the idea of playing during the pandemic. Men’s sophomore guard Darian Gibson said he finds it difficult to put in the necessary extra work on his own because of the required precautions. “[It’s had ...
