BSU gets ready for upcoming spring slate
After over a full year without any intercollegiate athletic contests, Bridgewater State University finally knows the next time it is set to play a game.
The Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) announced Friday morning that the eight presidents from its member institutions approved a plan to allow competition this spring in several varsity sports.
It was certainly welcomed news for BSU as the school’s baseball and softball teams will return to game action this upcoming Thursday with matchups against Eastern Nazarene while the women’s lacrosse team will get back to work with its season opener March 20 at Western New England. Both men’s and women’s tennis teams along with the men’s and women’s outdoor track and field teams will have a few contests scheduled for later this spring as well.
“What a weight has been lifted,” said BSU athletic director Marybeth Lamb. “We are just so happy to be able to get our students on the field to actually start competing again. This is what we’ve been working for all year.”
While there was growing anticipation of the likelihood of having some semblance of a season this spring, BSU’s teams kept on practicing without any guarantees.
But on Thursday night, women’s lacrosse coach Erica Adams gathered her team together and shared with them the plans that they all had been waiting for so long to hear.
“They were really excited,” said Adams as the Bears are set to play an 11-game season. “I think they recognized the importance of it and the opportunity that they have given that they didn’t have it last year. They were all smiles, happy, excited and just looking forward to our first contest.”
BSU baseball coach Greg Zackrison and his ball club stayed optimistic while practicing five to six times a week since mid-February.
That preparation, along with the boost they received when official word of the upcoming campaign was passed along, has the Bears elated to dive right into their 27-game season, which consists mostly of weekend doubleheaders.
“We’ve been practicing as if we were going to be playing,” Zackrison said. “So the truth is we’re ready to go. Now it’s the anticipation of starting back up again. It’s a pretty cool feeling. It’s just nice to know. It seems like baseball season again.”
There’s also an added eagerness for Zackrison’s squad to get on the diamond at Alumni Park. With their season canceled after playing eight games in Florida last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this season will mark the first time the Bears host a baseball game since May 4, 2019.
“The guys that are the second-year players, they’ve never even played on our field,” Zackrison said.
To make this all possible, there was a great deal of behind the scenes work that took place. Lamb, along with the other athletic directors from the MASCAC, met regularly for months trying to put together plans with the safety of student-athletes at the forefront.
Student-athletes will have to comply with health and safety protocols, including producing a negative COVID test within 72 hours of a competition. Social distancing on sidelines and in dugouts will be enforced and in nearly all instances, except for a few, players will wear masks while they compete.
BSU also will not allow spectators for its games and will not travel outside the state for contests, which severely shortened the amount of opponents for the men’s tennis team, which competes in the Little East Conference and has many of its member schools hailing from neighboring states.
Even with those precautions in place, Lamb knows there are no assurances in finishing the entire slate of games.
“There’s two wild cards in this season about being able to hopefully complete it and that will be transportation. Each of the buses will be at 50 percent occupancy. (The players) will be double-masked and hopefully they keep those masks on inside a bus,” Lamb said. “And then as all year long their social lives will be a wild card. Hopefully they will take this seriously and just follow all the protocols so we can get through the season.”
While this season brings joy and relief to many of the players, it’s especially meaningful for the seniors of their respective teams, who could play their last collegiate contests if they choose not to take the extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA due to the pandemic. Lamb said it is in the works to have Senior Day festivities and to have those players being honored joined by two guests for a ceremony.
“They really have tried to savor each moment with their teammates, each moment they get to be outside and being around people that have the same drive and the same commitment and love and passion for lacrosse and our program,” said Adams of her team’s six seniors. “They feel really fortunate. They feel accomplished that they’ve been able to follow all our protocols and be responsible and do the things we’ve asked them to do in order to have the opportunity to play. They certainly haven’t taken it for granted.”
By getting back to games, it doesn’t just allow BSU the thrill of competition, but it also brings a sense of normalcy.
“These kids are 18, 19, 20 years old, they just want normal back,” Zackrison said. “The appreciation the kids truly feel is for the athletic administration and truthfully letting this go and saying, ‘Yeah, we can do this.’”
Racist Incident Prompts Men’s Lacrosse Probation, Coach Termination and BSU Activism for Greater Accountability| Amherst Student
In the two weeks since The Student first reported that three members of the men’s lacrosse team chanted the n-word outside of their Black teammate’s suite, the college announced the probation of the team until June 2021 among additional disciplinary measures, while outrage from students, alumni and others from across the nation intensified as captured in letters of demands to the college for increased accountability that the Black Student Union (BSU) wrote and began circulating.
In the two weeks since The Student first reported that three members of the men’s lacrosse team chanted the n-word outside of their Black teammate’s suite, the college announced the probation of the team until June 2021 among additional disciplinary measures, while outrage from students, alumni and others from across the nation intensified as captured in letters of demands to the college for increased accountability that the Black Student Union (BSU) wrote and began circulating.
In an email to the college community on March 20, President Biddy Martin announced plans to address the “culture and actions” of the men’s lacrosse team, noting that the March 8 incident was “only the most recent in a list of deeply troubling cases involving some team members over the years.” The Student reported last year that members of the team were found to have drawn a swastika on an unconscious person at a party; months later, other team members made transphobic comments in the Amherst College Republicans GroupMe in the wake of the college’s controversial release of its Common Language Document.
Along with educational programming coordinated by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, a suspension of the team’s 2021 postseason and the prohibition of team gatherings through November 1, the college has notably placed the team on probation until June 30, 2021 and concluded that “a change in leadership for the lacrosse team will be necessary.” The Student confirmed with Director of Athletics Don Faulstick that Coach Jon Thompson has been fired. Thompson was in his tenth year at the college.
These measures are to be implemented in conjunction with earlier disciplinary actions outlined in a March 12 email from Martin, including the dismissal of any team member “who cannot rise to the level of respect from others,” leaving the selection of team captains to the coach rather than to players and the forbidding of team members from living in groups of six or more.
The March 12 email also attached a statement from Thompson. He wrote, “As the head lacrosse coach, I wholeheartedly condemn the racist language used by members of our team. There is no place for that language, which I find revolting.”
“As a program, we have taken preliminary measures but will continue to implement disciplinary and educational actions to address this particular incident, as well as our role in this community as a whole,” Thompson’s statement continued.
According to Faulstick, while the college considered other options in deciding these disciplinary measures, probation of the team appeared the most effective.
“Probation is a significant part of our overall plan to address the culture of the lacrosse team, but not the only part,” Faulstick wrote in an email interview. “In the end, we felt that probation struck a good balance between sending a strong message to the team and recognizing that not all members of the team have been involved in the most egregious behaviors.”
The team collectively submitted an open letter to The Student echoing Thompson’s concerns, asking “that each member of our team be evaluated based on their engagement with and commitment to the Amherst community at large. ”
“We think individually; we act individually; and we deserve to be judged individually,” the letter continued.
It’s a letter that comes hot on the heels of robust campus criticism and denouncing of the actions. After The Student’s March 11 publication of the article detailing the racist actions, students and alumni took to social media. One tweet, shared by user @natatoouuille, revealed the names of the individual players at fault and was retweeted over 50 times. The Student confirmed that the names in the tweet — Dylan Finazzo ’20, Rodrigo Castro ’20 and Matt Solberg ’20 — were those of the perpetrators. In the original reporting of the incident, The Student refrained from publishing these names out of concern for altering the disciplinary process that was still underway. The user has since made her Twitter profile private.
In the immediate aftermath of the tweet’s release, students also began sharing screenshots of the tweet on Instagram, along with photos of the three players taken from the Amherst College Athletics Flickr with the caption “Hold. Them. Accountable.”
An uninvolved team captain, who asked to remain anonymous, provided an account of events to The Student based on his conversations with the affected Black teammate, Finazzo, Castro and Solberg. According to the captain, the three students “each loudly said ‘goodnight n-words’ to each other. Their Black roommate and another Black student were in his room and overheard this conversation. He was understandably upset and came out to the common room and a physical altercation ensued.”
The Student’s initial reporting described that the three individuals “chanted the n-word outside of a Black lacrosse player’s suite,” which had been confirmed over email by students present. In its recount of events, which was confirmed by other individuals who witnessed the event, the BSU wrote that the three lacrosse players “screamed and chanted ‘[N-word! N-word! N-word! Goodnight, n-word!]’ outside of a Black lacrosse player’s room.”
The BSU published an initial letter, which included its perceived account of events as offered above, in The Student criticizing the college’s failure to put in place measures that would adequately address incidents like this one. “This incident exposes institutional ineptitude as it regards to handling a series of threats of racialized violence. It is another clear instance of the college’s lack of specific processes to handle situations like this,” the letter writes.
In the weeks since, the BSU has expanded the letter to further outline solutions for what a deeper, systematic approach to addressing racial violence may look like. Those demands include the incorporation of a clearer, college-wide definition of terms surrounding racist attacks into the college’s code of conduct; more proactive bias prevention work through a proposed discrimination reporting and response protocol; faculty, staff and student training in carrying out the college’s restorative practices initiative; cultural competency and anti-racism training for all members of the college community in leadership roles and for first-year students during orientation; and lastly, it calls for the same vein of training in a year-long program for any campus groups found to be racially discriminatory. Aside from the proposed institutional solutions, the letter also asks for transparency from the administration regarding the disciplinary action taken in this particular case. It concludes with a summative need to “#IntegrateAmherst,” noting that these steps come as the first of a longer project.
The BSU also began developing Instagram posts for #IntegrateAmherst alongside the letter, which have also garnered increased attention on social media. Along with multiple reshares, the first #IntegrateAmherst post on the BSU Instagram page collected nearly 750 likes.
The letter, made public as a Google Document and circulated widely across social media, quickly caught traction and now has over 150 pages of signatures from campus groups, students and alumni of the college as well as numerous signatories from students attending other schools spread across the country. Many of these signatures were added within the first few hours of the document’s posting.
The Student reached out to BSU for comment, but representatives of the group deferred to the letter as a strong expression of its response to the incident and the college’s disciplinary action.
A similar letter from alumni came shortly after the word of the incident spread formally, and this also called for institutionalized procedures surrounding racism at the college, citing Amherst Uprising as a point of hope for these measures to come during their own Amherst careers. The letter, also spread on a public Google Document via social media, has 554 signatures from alumni as of March 26. It was then sent to administrators, including Faulstick.
In a statement to The Student regarding her reception of the letters, Martin affirmed that the college is now accelerating its preexisting work of instituting training for racist offenses. Martin’s statement is included at the end of this article.
The college is also working to amend the Student Code of Conduct, according to Dean of Students Liz Agosto. “As President Martin shared in her March 12 letter to the community, we will be working on updating the Student Code of Conduct with detailed procedures to support students and address incidents such as this,” Agosto said in an email interview. “We understand that students are looking for greater clarity in order to understand what they can expect. We are beginning to work on the basics of how to develop an action plan. Addressing the code will, by necessity, include opportunities for community engagement.”
“I suspect there will not always be agreement on the specifics of such policy and programmatic changes. Yet, there should be no disagreement about the need to ensure that Amherst is a truly open, welcoming and inclusive community for everyone,” Martin wrote in her statement to The Student, which is included in its entirety below. “One of Amherst’s great strengths is careful, critical thinking and vigorous exchange about important matters. The challenges that BSU and others have put to us are good evidence of that strength. The BSU petitioners demand that we ‘integrate Amherst.’ That will take us all, working together. We can take a number of necessary steps during this very difficult period so that more of what we need is in place in the fall. I am committed to ensuring that we take those steps for the benefit of the entire Amherst community.”
Statement from President Biddy Martin:
I have been asked by the editors of “The Student” for my response to the letters from alumni and BSU about the problem of racial prejudice and hateful expression on campus. The statements and demands identify the gap between our goals for Amherst and the realities that too many students still face. The documents point out that we have not yet done all we can to create an environment that is truly inclusive and free from the harm of racism. We have had success in increasing educational opportunity and enrolling a student body that more nearly reflects the richness of difference in the world. We have focused on the work of inclusion, but we are not where we need to be. We know that it is not enough to bring talented students from many backgrounds together if the educational environment is not supportive of the success and flourishing of them all. Recent incidents and accounts of student and alumni experiences give abundant evidence of that fact. As you would expect, I am hearing from a large number of students and alumni, with a wide range of perspectives on how we should move forward. I am doing my best to listen and reflect, knowing how important it is that we can move forward as a community.
I share the belief articulated by BSU signatories that change requires attention to systemic matters that go beyond reactions to specific incidents. Reacting to troubling incidents is certainly important, but falls far short of what we actually want — to be part of an Amherst that is created and enjoyed equally by everyone who has come here, that is defined by mutual appreciation and respect.
The documents we have received emphasize a number of needed changes. There are three areas, in particular, that seem critical to more systemic change and have also been in discussion at the College. All of them involve a great deal of complexity, particularly in an academic environment. They include: 1) a robust policy and set of procedures for dealing with identity-based discrimination and/or harassment; 2) a bias-reporting protocol, which has been the focus of the Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion and, when implemented, will include features of the best available models; and 3) the development and use of restorative practices, where they are appropriate, to deal with conflict and violations. As to the first, we know from Title IX standards and procedures for gender-based discrimination that it is possible to develop policies and procedures aimed at preventing harm and holding those responsible to account. Experiences with Title IX also teach us that it is extremely important and difficult to get the policies and procedures right.
Student and alumni advocacy for restorative practices in the case of race-based offenses converges with work that is underway on training and eventual implementation of such practices. That work will be accelerated. I have asked Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Norm Jones and Chief Student Affairs Officer Karu Kozuma to take the lead in moving these three identity-based policies and/or practices forward from their current state to implementation, in consultation with appropriate administrative offices and with relevant faculty, staff, and student groups. I will ask Provost and Dean of the Faculty Catherine Epstein and the Committee of Six to organize meaningful discussions between students and faculty about the relationship between our commitment to “respect for persons,“ on the one hand, and “freedom of expression,“ on the other.
I suspect there will not always be agreement on the specifics of such policy and programmatic changes. Yet, there should be no disagreement about the need to ensure that Amherst is a truly open, welcoming, and inclusive community for everyone. One of Amherst’s great strengths is careful, critical thinking and vigorous exchange about important matters. The challenges that BSU and others have put to us are good evidence of that strength. The BSU petitioners demand that we “integrate Amherst.“ That will take us all, working together. We can take a number of necessary steps during this very difficult period so that more of what we need is in place in the fall. I am committed to ensuring that we take those steps for the benefit of the entire Amherst community.
Correction: An earlier version of this article suggested that the four players involved in the March 8 incident wrote and shared an account of events with The Student. Another player on the team asked the involved parties for their account, then wrote to The Student what was told to him. The article is now updated to reflect this shift.

90,000 The first 6 interactive terminals of the bicycle rental system will start operating in Burgas at the beginning of May
The first 6 interactive terminals of the bicycle rental system will start working in Burgas at the beginning of May
The first 6 interactive terminals of the new bicycle rental system in Burgas will be located in Florata, Grafichna Baza, Morsko Casino, BSU, Bus Station Yug, st. “Trakia” (complex “Slaveykov”) …
In the terminal it will be possible not only to rent a bike, but also to get comprehensive information about the city, cultural events, attractions and entertainment that can be visited.
| This event was commented on by the Mayor of Burgas, Dimitar Nikolov …
– The biggest advantage of the new “smart” cars is the ability to send a distress signal in case of an emergency … In a tourist city such as Bourgas, this is an additional opportunity to ensure the safety of visitors, and the citizens themselves …
It is possible to pay for bicycle rental services using a special bicycle card, an ordinary bank debit or credit card, as well as by sending an SMS message from your cell phone.
Before the start of the season, 13 interactive terminals will be installed in Burgas, where it will be possible to purchase special cycling cards to pay for the rental of bicycle equipment.
Also, it is worth noting that this season it will be possible to rent completely new bicycles, which were purchased by Burgas and which were assembled specifically for the municipality of the city. At first, there will be 120 of them. Moreover, the new bicycles are equipped better than their predecessors, have excellent performance, and are equipped with many useful functions to ensure comfort and safety during operation.But pedicabs will be available for children.
In general, we recommend everyone who will be in Burgas in the summer to ride a new bike around the city.
It is convenient, cheap and completely ecologically safe for the environment, and also, which is not unimportant, is good for your health.

The sports world did not remain aloof from the new global disaster of 2020. And if no information has yet been received about cases of diseases among athletes, then messages about the cancellation of all kinds of competitions and restrictions on the movement of athletes appear more and more often.
The virus strides the sports planet
It all started on January 22nd. As a result of a joint meeting of the working group of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Chinese Olympic Committee, it was decided to transfer the qualifying tournament for the 2020 Games in boxing to Jordan. The launches, which were originally planned to be held in the Chinese city of Wuhan from February 3 to February 14, 2020, will now take place only in March. Boxers from Uzbekistan were supposed to take part in the competition, but now the entire training schedule is out of order, and this can negatively affect the team’s results in the struggle for tickets to the main games in the athlete’s life.
On January 27, the president of the Asian Athletics Association, Dahlana al-Hamad, announced the cancellation of the Asian Athletics Championships in Hangzhou, which was supposed to be held on February 12 and 13. The reason is the same – the outbreak of the coronavirus. Athletes from Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and many other countries also lost the opportunity to demonstrate their readiness.
Wednesday, January 29, can be considered fatal in the opposition of the world of sports to a new virus. In just one day:
- Kazakhs refused to host the qualifying matches of the Tennis Federation Cup, which were proposed to be transferred from the Chinese city of Dongguan to Nur-Sultan.
- The World Athletics Association announced that the Winter Athletics World Championships, which was to be held in Nanjing, China, from March 13-15, 2020, has been postponed to 2021.
- The Chinese stage of the Alpine Skiing World Cup, which is to be held on February 15-16, was simply canceled.“Although the risk level in Yanqing is low, the health and well-being of athletes and all competitors should be prioritized,” such reasons for the cancellation of the competition were named by officials. It is worth noting that these races were supposed to be the first test event before the 2022 Olympics in Beijing.
90,055 China’s women’s national soccer team was quarantined in an Australian hotel. The fact is that the team was in Wuhan on January 22, so the athletes will have to stay in the hotel until February 5 due to fears that they could catch the deadly coronavirus.
On the last day of January, the leadership of the Women’s Professional Golf Association (LPGA) in China decided to cancel the tournament due to the coronavirus epidemic. Then, on January 31, ski testing events were canceled on the track in the city of Zhangjiakou, which will host the biathlon competition at the 2022 Winter Olympics.The tests were supposed to pass from February 27 to March 2.
Coronavirus has had a major impact on match conditions in the Asian Football Champions League. Due to the fact that some countries had already managed to prohibit entry to all foreigners coming from China, the matches of the clubs had to be urgently transferred to states that still agreed to accept Chinese teams.
The virus did not bypass the organizers of the races, however, not yet the Royal ones. On February 2, the cancellation of the Formula E series race, which was to be held on March 21, 2020 in the Chinese city of Sanya, was officially announced.
And on February 3, the national team of Kyrgyzstan learned that it would not be able to take part in the Asian Futsal Championship. The Asian Championship was to be held from February 26 to March 8 in Ashgabat (Turkmenistan). 16 best teams in Asia, including the national team of Kyrgyzstan, intended to compete for the title of champions of the continent. But the Asian Football Federation decided to postpone the tournament indefinitely.
Face Fears in the Eyes
Despite the daily frightening reports about the infected and the dead, real athletes and professionals still have strength and courage not only for humor, but also for a sober view of things.
For example, the spouse of the Belarusian biathlon star Daria Domracheva, Norwegian Ole Einar Bjordalen and the coach of the Chinese national biathlon team, calmly reacted to the decision of the authorities to prohibit the national team from returning to their home country before the World Cup.
Ole Einar found some advantages in this: “We prepared in Hochfilzen, now we are going to Ruhpolding, because the trip to China had to be canceled. There are good conditions, and we will stay in this place until the start of the World Cup. The ban has a good effect on the future of the national team, so how we were able to stay in Europe. “
The wife of the Norwegian, Domracheva, also reassured all biathlon fans. She said that the Chinese biathlon team feels calm and does not panic about the coronavirus, the athletes do not fly to their homeland and do not contact anyone from there.
They are monitoring the coronavirus in the Higher Hockey League, where the Uzbek club “Humo” plays. The players of the Chinese clubs ORJI, KRS-BSU and Tseng Tou, playing in the VHL, undergo a daily examination in connection with the situation with the coronavirus. Earlier, the VHL reported that the league, due to the spread of coronavirus in China, decided to transfer all home matches of Chinese clubs to Russia.Tseng Tou reported on Wednesday that the club had sent all of its Chinese players home after one of them fell ill with SARS.
And the players of the Kunlun Kontinental Hockey League of China expressed their support to the people of their country.
“We are well informed about the situation with the virus and are not afraid to get sick. Rather, we are worried about China, for the people of China – those who stayed there. We have no relatives in China right now: whoever had, everyone managed to leave earlier. But we We are worried about what is happening in the country, “Spencer Fu, a hockey player from the Chinese KHL club Kunlun, told reporters.
The IOC did not stand aside either, which immediately issued an official statement regarding the danger of canceling or postponing the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The cancellation of the 2020 Summer Olympics due to the coronavirus has never been discussed, the Games organizers said.
It is too early to build forecasts about the future of the coronavirus. But now you need to understand that it has affected all spheres of life of a modern person, including professional sports, which, to some extent, turned out to be not ready for such a serious opponent.When you do not know the strengths and weaknesses of your opponent, all you have to do is retreat, which is what we observe.
