    Sondra Ashton|Updated Oct 5, 2017

    October brings on the melancholia of autumn. Even here. I recently read an extensive political and economic history of Mexico. Early Spanish invaders called this area in which I live, the land of perpetual spring. I’ve lived here close to two years. I have to agree. The description is apt.

Before beating Mayville State, the Lights hadn’t won a road game, of...

    When it comes to building an athletic program from the ground up, it sometimes means digging a little deeper for athletes, especially in the beginning. And for the Montana State University-Northern cross country program, that proved to be true. But, because the program just got its start in 2015, it offered the opportunity for many athletes to pursue a career in cross country, including some who had never previously participated in the sport.
