Something to Remember...

Ryann Bowns Hulne—Adrian Class of 2007

I recently got to introduce Hugh Downs before he spoke to some students. It was a really cool opportunity. He has the most amazing and interesting stories. He's a wonderful man and is so important to the world of broadcasting. Interesting fact: He just turned 91 and still holds a current pilots license.

Hope leads Crusaders at Indoor Track and Field Championships

Maurus Hope had a meet worth remembering, so much that he was honored with the Men's Athlete of the Meet award. Hope led by example and his team followed, racking up school records, championship meet records and all-conference honors.

Both the NNU men (99 points) and women (73 points) placed 4th place in the championships, representing the school well. Coach John Spatz led the team in the closing prayer during the final team meeting and summed it up well “God, we honor you in everything first, may you shine in our victories and in our defeats.” and it couldn't have been said any better as NNU hosted a great Championships by performance and by its administration, volunteers and local officials who ran a great meet.

Hope named GNAC Athlete of the Week

SPOKANE, Wash. - Northwest Nazarene's Maurus Hope has been named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Male Indoor Track & Field Athlete-of-the-Week, announced this morning by the conference office.

Hope (Sr., Adrian, OR) set a school record and ran the fifth fastest time in GNAC history in finishing third in the 200 (22.06) at the Boise State Blue and Orange Indoor. 

Hope's time was one of three GNAC All-Time Top 10 performances by the Crusaders in the meet. He also finished fifth in the 60 hurdles in a time of 8.53 as he took the conference early-season lead in both events. That time is the second fastest in NNU school history.

Big day for internationals—Hope sets 400 meters record

You might not expect a display of international athletic talent in Idaho, but that's what track and field fans got Saturday.

Boise State's Per Strandquist and Northwest Nazarene's Maurus Hope were just two of the international stars, along with the Broncos' Eleni Kafourou and Nerisha Phillip, at the Blue and Orange Classic at the Jacksons Track at the Idaho Center.

Strandquist won the 60-meters and 200, while Hope set a school record in the 400 and helped the Crusaders 4x400 relay do the same. Kafourou won the long and triple jumps and Phillip the 200 and 400.

"They kind went OK I guess," Hope said of his day's events, as he clocked a time of 49.66 seconds for fourth in the 400, besting the old school record of 49.96 held by Mitch Ward. "Coming off a break it was kind of nice to get a meet in."

The freshman from Heidelberg, Germany, got his start in track just last year as an exchange student at Adrian High (Ore.), but he is already having a great second season.          Full Article found at http://www.idahopress.com/sports/?id=19135.
