Dog’s win again! + other stuff……

This is from Sunday’s Charleston Post Courier, The State in Columbia and The Republic in Columbus, Indiana.   It speaks to the kind of young people we have at our alma mater.

While their counterparts at other schools are enjoying sun and fun over spring break, a group of Citadel cadets is getting only the scorching sun.  Five cadets from the state military college in Charleston are joining about 5,000 other participants in New Mexico on Sunday for the Bataan Memorial Death March. The march is a 26-mile hike through a scorching desert known for windstorms blowing dust at 30 mph. The event is held each March to commemorate the servicemen who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II. In April 1942, tens of thousands of American and Filipino soldiers surrendered to Japanese forces and were forced to march through jungles where thousands died.”

The Bulldogs beat Charleston Southern 12-5 after trailing 4-3 in the early innings. The diamond Dogs pounded our 14 hits and stole 7 bases.  On a two game win streak they face an uphill battle against #3 ranked USC Gamecocks in Columbia tonight.  First pitch is 7p.m. barring any rain delay/postponement.  The Bulldogs are an underdog in this one but then again we are never favored when we play them and we have barbequed those roosters in the past.

The Spartanburg Herald-Journal has reported that Wofford has expelled two sophomore football players from the team, giving them five players expelled from school year to date. Two of the five are QBs and the latest to go are the starting safety and his classmate who lettered last season but sat out this season due to an injury.

Did you know….that the “voice” of the Final Four VCU Rams is none other than former “Voice of the Bulldogs” Robbie Robinson?   Robbie is a great play by play announcer and even better guy.  Who knows, maybe one day current Bulldog voice Darren Goldwater will have to chance to broadcast a Citadel football team in the National Championship  game or other team in the championship tourney.

 That’s all for this week, hope to have more on Monday……
