Travelling around the town....

When we first got to Northeastern, there were no athletic facilities on campus at all.  We would gather on Friday nights down at Memorial Stadium behind Sheep-Harney for football games... if we wanted to get to the baseball field, we had to walk on a road cut through the swamp over th Central Elementary School.  Softball and Tennis were played on the fields and courts over behind the Boys Club.  Those of us that ran track had to travel to our meets.  Everything was on the road... which we actually kinda liked.

The only sports that we could attend on campus were basketball and wrestling.  I loved to go to events in that gym.  Our basketball teams were alway great and we always had some very competitive wrestlers too... and besides, going to as many sporting events meant I didn't have to do my homework, right?

Now I believe all of those things that we use to have to travel around the community to do are now right there on the campus.  I guess that is a good thing.... but I kinda liked those days of travelling around to the different venues.  It really created a sense of community for me that I'm not sure we get when everything is right there together... by the way... I never did convince any teachers that going to sporting events was as important as homework... but I dang sure tried!!!  Go Eagles!
