Belles invite fathers for Senior Dads Weekend

first_imgMembers of the Saint Mary’s class of 2014 and their fathers enjoyed events at Saint Mary’s and Notre Dame this weekend during the College’s annual Senior Dads Weekend. Susie Larson, vice president of the 2014 class board, who helped organize the event, said the board worked hard to find an open weekend for this event since last spring, because it had to account for the numerous events on campus and the football schedule. Larson said there was a great deal of interest in all of the scheduled events, which resulted in a large turnout from the senior class and their fathers. “The weekend had 280 students register and our class is 298 strong, so we were extremely excited about the turnout,” Larson said.  Student body president Kat Sullivan said the class board did a good job of including the entire senior class community. “Regardless of who the father figure is in a girl’s life, the class board made sure the events were welcoming to all, including some mothers,” Sullivan said.  The weekend’s events opened with a beer garden and silent auction Friday evening in the College’s Student Center.  Sullivan said the event included an open bar with all types of beer and wine, and the silent auction was filled with donated items from the fathers. “Whatever money that was made from the auction was then given to the class of 2014’s board, so it was a great way to fundraise for future class events,” Sullivan said.  “Also, everyone who went got a beer sty with a French cross on it and little koozies with bowties on them to commemorate the weekend.” On Saturday, the College Archives and the Riedinger House were open for morning tours. Sullivan said this helped the girls to share their College’s history with their fathers.  Senior Bridget Byrne said the tours of Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday afternoon were one of her favorite parts of the weekend, as well as a watch party for the Notre Dame vs. ASU game at CJ’s Bar later that evening. “I have always loved watching games with my Dad, so this was something special for us to do together before graduation,” Byrne said. “It was also so fun to do push-ups in CJ’s during the game watch, and I know all of my friends were really looking forward to this weekend after all of the fun we had at Junior Mom’s Weekend last spring.” The weekend culminated with Mass in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit in Le Mans Hall on Saturday night, Sullivan said.  At the Mass, Saint Mary’s students and their fathers celebrated their relationships.  The celebrant, Fr. John Pearson, stressed the importance of letting their parents know how grateful the students were for their love and support, Sullivan said.  “Fr. John talked a lot about making sure us girls recognized that our fathers make sacrifices for us not because they’re expecting a thank you, but because they love us,” Sullivan said. “I think that that really resonated with a lot of girls and their fathers that were present.” The parent weekends at Saint Mary’s are among many students’ favorite traditions on campus, Larson said. “I am a strong supporter in how Saint Mary’s organizes their parent weekends throughout our four years on campus because I think it reflects our experience growing as young women,” she said.

Manchester United make Klopp No.1 choice to replace Moyes

first_imgManchester United have made Jurgen Klopp their No.1 target to replace David Moyes at Old Trafford, Goal can reveal.The Borussia Dortmund manager is United’s top choice to take over from the Scot, who is set to be sacked just 11 months after being appointed Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor. Goal understands that Klopp’s camp has already been sounded out by the United hierarchy. He is believed to have initially held reservations about the post but sources have said the 46-year-old has subsequently had a change of heart and there is growing confidence at Old Trafford that he could be persuaded to move to the Premier League.Goal has learned that United have already met with Louis van Gaal, who will be a free agent when he steps down as Netherlands coach after the World Cup.However, the meeting, which is believed to have taken place last week, has prompted strong reservations in the United boardroom about whether Van Gaal’s dictatorial management style would get the best out of the players, including the senior core who have been so disaffected under Moyes.The Scot will be dismissed before Saturday’s Premier League clash against Norwich City at Old Trafford, with Ryan Giggs likely to be placed in charge of United until the end of the season. However, the player-coach, 40, is not believed to be a realistic candidate to replace Moyes on a permanent basis due to his lack of managerial experience. Klopp, who is contracted to Dortmund until 2018, has the greatest appeal to the United hierarchy for transforming the German club into a European powerhouse since taking over six years ago.Klopp led Dortmund to consecutive Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012, when they also won the domestic double, and they were the runners-up in last season’s Champions League final.Dortmund have continued to punch above their weight this season, reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League only to be narrowly defeated by Real Madrid. They are also second in the Bundesliga table although a distant second behind recently-crowned champions Bayern Munich.Klopp has been widely linked with a move to the Premier League in recent years but has remained loyal to the club where he made his name.United believe that they have the prestige and history to turn Klopp’s head and bring him to Old Trafford this summer. The powerbrokers, led by the Glazer family and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, are willing to hand the new man a staggering transfer kitty of up to £200 million to reshape a squad that has failed so dismally this season.KLOPP EXIT WOULD BE A SURPRISETHE VIEW FROM GERMANYBy Falko Bloeding | Goal Germany Manchester United would be stupid not to have Jurgen Klopp on their shortlist. But to be honest, the chances of him leaving Dortmund are very, very slim. He has shown absolutely no signs of becoming tired at BVB and he is as committed as ever. He signed a new contract until 2018 last October and said at the time: “We are all a little in love with this club and how things are run here. Nothing can separate us and until 2018 nobody needs to call me.” And Klopp said last summer that there had been offers, but that he did not want to leave Dortmund: “There were indeed requests. Requests from clubs which I never thought would be interested in signing me and my staff. But my respect towards Borussia Dortmund is so high that I never thought about it.” He’s also said in the past that he would only consider leaving Dortmund if he felt the relationship with his team would “change”.  That, however, does not look like happening now, or in the immediate future.last_img read more
