Girls U16 Hockey Wins National Tournament

On the bus ride up to Blaine, Minn., the SSM Girls U16 hockey team knew exactly what they needed at the CCM National Invitational Tournament – four wins. By the time they loaded the bus to head back to campus, they had accomplished just that. The Sabres first took the ice against the Madison Capitals, whom they beat 3-0 to start off the tournament. The next two games brought two more SSM victories – 5-2 against Chicago Young Americans and 4-2 against Little Caesars. A 4-1 win against HoneyBaked in the championship game sealed the deal for the Sabres, crowning them the CCM NIT champions.

ScholarShift Stories: Numbers Shouldn't Lie

Though you have likely heard the popular saying, “numbers don’t lie,” it’s also true that research statistics are often collected and applied in misleading or incorrect ways. With that concept in mind, Math and Science Instructor James Taylor led a ScholarShift module that guided students through a foundational method to help them gather solid research data through the use of statistics. 

After studying and discussing the methodology of gathering trustworthy data during the module’s first two October sessions, Taylor asked participants to poll 30 SSM students on who they planned to vote for in Monday’s mock presidential election. Read more.
