Not much was happening this evening in the gender inclusive hall, but I got to bug students studying.
This evening I photographed Oregon’s Hawaii Club as they prepared costumes and practiced dancing in Gerlinger Hall’s Woodruff Gym. The luau will take place Saturday night in the EMU Ballroom.
The Pilots defeated Oregon in a midweek game Wednesday evening at PK Park. After 5 1/3 innings of solid pitching by freshman Porter Clayton, Jeff Gold and Scott McGough gave up 1 and 2 runs respectively in 1/3 innings each. Oregon was unable to overcome the lead and succumbed 4-2.
Eugene police responded to a report of shots fired from a house in the 2700 block of Fairmount Boulevard Monday afternoon. Dozens of officers swarmed the quiet residential neighborhood while others worked to secure a perimeter, blocking traffic just east of the University. Residents of surrounding houses were evacuated to safer areas, including neighbors’ garages. Upon investigation, a 51-year-old man was found dead as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

After weeks of constant rain showers, students took advantage of the second straight day of spring-like weather around the UO campus. The lawn behind the Knight Library hosted a flag football tournament between fraternities. While the play was a little lackluster, it was good to see students out and about enjoying the sun.
The Wildcats defeated Oregon in the second game of the series Friday night at PK Park. At the top of the seventh inning, Johnny Field of Arizona blasted a solo home run over the left field wall. Oregon struggled at the plate, tying a season-low with three hits.
It’s track and field season again, as the Oregon Relays kicked off today another great day in the Oregon track tradition during a beautiful Eugene day at Hayward Field. Here are a few of photographer Michael Ciaglo and I’s frames from the first day:
