Before there was Bashball: SLUH alumni reflect on Wall Ball, the biggest sport of SLUH’s past
  • Features

The rec room used to be a lot different from what it is now. Alongside the pool and ping pong tables there used to be metal hoops that lined the walls, utilized for a sport from days long ago: wall ball. Wall ball, which used to be the biggest thing at SLUH, was a game that everyone played when they had a few minutes of free time. But eventually the popular pastime had to go when one student almost lost his finger playing.

Commentary: Addressing the Super Bowl Monday Issue
  • Opinion

It’s a tale as old as time. Each year, SLUH students gather together to watch the big game, just like millions of other Americans. The play calls are scrutinized, the commercials are ranked, and the halftime show is either thoroughly enjoyed or berated for not living up to the hype. Overall, the night is fun, except for one thing: the looming threat of a Monday morning at school. Jr. Bills dread few things more than school.
