Chronicle adviser’s final column: The road taken…

The road taken…

by Michael Vadnie

University Chronicle adviser


I’ve taken to calling my imminent retirement “rounding the clubhouse turn” after a famous call in the sport of kings.

The privilege to teach and to mentor adult children of other people for 32 years during the one of most important times of their lives cannot be understated.

Perhaps more challenging — and fulfilling — is having served the SCSU community for a quarter of a century as adviser of the fiercely independent University Chronicle.

Pianist adds electronic elements to sound

A concert of works for piano and electronics being appreciatedDengke Jiang

Keith Kirchoff played a show on April 16 as part of the New Media Guest Artist series at SCSU. His style of play is unique, although it is necessarily fitting to my taste.

Kirchoff’s style of play can be categorized as electro-acoustic piano, a mixture of audio bytes from his laptop while he plays the piano.

I will say this: Kirchoff is incredibly talented with a piano and creative in the way he presents his style. However, I did not like his mixtures of electronic sounds and sporadic play of piano for the most part.

Husky baseball extends winning streak to 14

The SCSU Husky baseball team is surging this season, putting up a 21-2 record through April 8. The team is currently on a 14-game winning streak with sweeps over University of Sioux Falls, Minot State University, and University of Minnesota Crookston.

The Huskies are 10-0 in the NSIC, which is ranked at the top in the conference. SCSU is ranked fourth in NCBWA poll and fifth in the National DII Baseball News Poll.

Part of the reason for such great success is their pitching. The Huskies currently lead the NCAA DII ranks with a 1.40 ERA. Scott Lieser leads the team with 7 wins followed by Kyle Fischer’s 6 wins.

K-Pop party rocks Atwood

Korean Pop Music, or K-Pop, as it is commonly called, has become reasonably popular here in America, mostly thanks to the viral hit “Gangnam Style” by PSY.

SCSU had their first K-Pop Dance Party in the Quarry of Atwood, which turned out to be a huge hit. The event was sponsored by USP and was organized by Alexa Hope and Caitlin Murphy of the Tumblr site Harsh K-Pop Truths.

The Quarry was made up like an everyday dance club, with balloons and strobe lights. It was like walking into any other downtown rave club.

The team results for the squad didn’t end the way Drew LeBlanc wanted to as the SCSU Huskies lost to Quinnipiac on Thursday night.

Individually, though, the senior forward has to be quite proud of himself and probably needs to clear some space on his trophy case if he has any room left.

After capping off a historic season, LeBlanc was named the 33rd NCAA Hobey Baker Award Winner, which was announced on Friday afternoon at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh.
