Last Week of Winter Break: Quick Hits

A lot of little stories (and a LOT of snow falling here at the Mobile Writing on the Mall News Center) lead to today’s quick hits!

  • Roll on, Etta Express – The Pioneers Baseball team was recently selected as the 19th best team in the country.  The pre-season poll, assembled by the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, placed OAC for Heidelberg #14 in the polling.  Wooster, the team that won the 2009 Mideast Regional Tournament over Marietta, was ranked #2 in the nation, behind #1 St. Thomas of Minnesota.  The Etta Express will start its season in Memphis, TN over Spring Break.

Men's Basketball Takes The Court Wednesday Night

Marietta College’s Men’s Basketball team will take to Fenton Court in Ban Johnson Arena at the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center (gasps for breath) for the first home game of the season Wednesday, December 3rd.  Tip-off should be around 7:30 PM.  The game has been designated as a “white-out” for fans, so if you’re coming, wear white and cheer on the Pioneers as they take on Denison.

A lot of students are anticipated to come to the game, as athletes in other sports and the campus’s Greek life have been asked to be the backbone of the  “white-out” effort.  Advertising on campus has been heavy as of last night, with the rock being painted and signs/table cards places across campus.

Later in the week, the Pios will take on Ohio Northern in what will be a kick-off to Ohio Athletic Conference play.  That game is Saturday, December 6th at 3 PM on Fenton Court in Ban Johnson Arena at…oh…you know where.

The game is being broadcast on 88.3 WMRT-FM (Marietta, Parkersburg, Athens, and everywhere in between).  Calling the game will be yours truly alongside long-time voice of the Pioneers, Mike Washbaugh.  Look for pre-game coverage to start around 7:20 PM EST.  You can catch the stream online of our coverage (or WMOA’s coverage) by going to Marietta’s Streaming Audio page.

For a look further into the Men’s Basketball season, check out the schedule here.  And to see how the 2-2 Pioneers look in the OAC so far, check here.  It’s looking like a good season so far (if you don’t count the two 20-25 point losses), and looks like last year’s six wins should be passed (four out of conference wins, two in conference).

Good luck guys!  Should be a good season.

Twilight Drops at Midnight, Still Tix Available

One of the most anticipated movies of the week, Twilight, drops tonight across the nation.  And even with all the hype surrounding its release, you, yes, that’s right, you, can see Twilight at Midnight tonight in the Marietta area.

If you count Parkersburg as close enough, that is.

The Regal Cinemas at the Grand Central Mall still have tickets available for a 12:01 AM showing of the movie, with many tickets still available at many other times throughout the day and the weekend, according to Fandango.com.  If you want to see it at the local cineplex, the first showing at the Lafayette Center Cinema at 4:10 PM.

Just remember that the student discount vouchers you can pick up in Andrews are more than likely not eligible for Twilight, so be prepared to pay full price when you go.

Personally, I will be enjoying Charles Sumner Harrison Organization’s annual fashion show.  Tickets still available for $2, last I heard.  It benefits the Marietta Humane Society, so where can you go wrong with that?
