Leading the charge and winners: Team Peshtigo River State Park Correctional Facility
The battle against malaria has taken a decisive turn in the favor of the Gentlemen who on Sunday rallied forces to open yet another front. Taking to the ice of the Compton Arena, the Gentlemen caught the enemy off guard as they stormed the rinks, holding an University wide broomball tourney, Suffice it say, it was just what the campaign needed. On hearing the news from the front, St. Ed said, “It was their finest hour. Gentlemen everywhere have risen to the occasion and done their duty for King and Hall.” On returning from the front, Patrick Krauss said, “The men push through enemy lines and delivered punch after punch to send the enemy home…mullet-less and defeated.” Huzzah!

Tony (in the center) with the Sted's wedding delegation
Anthony Piskurich '09, M.Ed '12, and Stephanie Frketic were married this past Saturday at Sacred Heart Church in Jacksonville, Florida. Fellow Stedsmen were attendance as well as Fr. Ralph who was the celebrant and received the couple's vows. The weather was great, but the couple was even better! On Stephanie joining the Sted's family, Nate Uzas '09, Stedsman and Best Man, said, "Just when you think that things can't get better... they get better!"
...the Gentlemen write on their dry erase boards. Witty and insightful, and in this case, so true! Still, as we patiently wait for break, let’s not forgot those who are patiently waiting for the brave and courageous Gentlemen to strike a blow against malaria.

Mullets Against Malaria continued as it opened up a new front against the enemy. In a surprise move, the Gentlemen cut their hair, revealing their secret weapon, the mullet. The breakout was reminiscent of Pickett’s charge at the Battle of Gettysburg… but this time, it was successful. On the use of shock and awe tactics, Michael Murphy, Sted’s President, said, “My grandfather contracted malaria in the South Pacific during WWII. I just found this out. Suffice it to say, this thing just got personal. Malaria is going down.”
"A must see"... and "the feel good campus musical of the semester"
Braeden Fallet and Ned Vogel, Steds junior and sophomore respectively, were co-directors of PEMCo’s (ND’s student-run musical theater group) recent performance of Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods. To bring this classic to life, Fallet and Vogel stayed behind the curtain with Fallet directing vocals and Vogel directing the overall performance. On co-directing this production, Vogel said, “It was one of the best experiences I have ever been a part of; from the fantastic production team to the amazing and talented cast.” Still, an unnamed Stedsman and patron of the arts said, “What a triumph for such young directors!”
At the direction of the Hall President, Michael Murphy, the
Vice Presidents, Patrick Krauss and Christian Verhamme, have mobilized the
Gentlemen to undertake one the administration’s many campaign pledges: a
campaign against malaria. Yes, the Murphy Administration has targeted malaria,
a disease transmitted by mosquitos, afflicting 207 million people worldwide.What’s the plan of attack? Mullets. Yes,
Since August, the Gentlemen, some of them at least, have
been growing their hair out in this not so popular, but not forgotten, 80’s
hairstyle all in an effort to raise awareness and funds for mosquito nets in
malaria prone areas.
The campaign will commence this Friday with t-shirts and
mullet wigs sales and end with a broomball tourney on Sunday evening at the
Compton Ice Arena. All proceeds will go to "Nothing But Nets."

On Mullets Against Malaria, Jacob VandenBosch, Sted’s Junior and
mullet wearer, said, “I’ve never met a mullet that I didn’t like.”
