How 'Bout Those Wildcats?
The CSU, Chico women's rugby team won the UC San Diego Classic Tournament during spring break. The Wildcats defeated host UC San Diego (ranked third nationally) in the championship match. Both the women's and men's rugby teams headed to the playoffs April 3-4. Men's basketball team member Brian Falstich, a senior guard, was named first team all-CCAA. Falstich is the Wildcats' leading scorer and one of the top three-point shooters in the country. Women's basketball team members Kim Abts and Marissa White were also selected to the first team all-CCAA. Katie Stokx pitched a perfect game, and Lindsay Himmelspach hit a three-run homer in the March 24 game against Western Washington, giving the Wildcats an 8-0 victory.
Friedlander Sows Wild Oak Globally
At the end of March, Paul Friedlander, professor of music and director of the Music Industry Program, traveled to England to the Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts, a school built by Paul McCartney that has noted music performance and music industry programs. Friedlander explored the institute's curriculum, discussed student and faculty exchanges, and presented a lecture on the future of the music industry. He did the same at Kalmar University in Sweden. In 1997, Friedlander created the Music Industry Program at CSU, Chico, which has grown to the fifth-largest music industry program in the nation and the largest west of Nashville. "With the digital revolution eroding the boundaries between sale and use of music and domestic and international transmission, gaining a global perspective becomes a priority for a music industry educator," said Friedlander.
