CHICKASHA – The Drovers started conference play with a bang, crushing the Saint Gregory’s Cavaliers 6-0 on Thursday afternoon at Drover Pitch.

Just 14 minutes into the game, USAO’s Kalokwera Okot scored his second goal of the season off an assist by Nicolas Alberto.

Less than 10 minutes later, Jean Gnapi found Perry Sansford to give the Drovers a 2-0 lead. Minutes later — and then minutes apart — Stephen Owusu scored two more goals for the Drovers. The first was unassisted and the second was off an assist by Niall Burley.

CHICKASHA – Junior Nicolas Alberto has helped lead the Drovers to the NAIA Quarterfinals both years he’s been to USAO, but this season, he’s hungry for more.

“As a team, I just want to win the title; go to nationals and win the title. Nothing less. That’s why I came back,” Alberto said. “Now, I’m a team captain so I have to work really hard in practice to show the young kids to follow my lead.”

Alberto took on the role as team captain at the beginning of the season. The Drovers are on their way to a successful year with potential of reaching Alberto’s goal.

Festival examines health, nature of 'body politic'

Photo Cutline: 
The bi-annual Festival of Arts and Ideas explores the Body Politic, beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 15 and 16 in the USAO Ballroom. The Festival brings together faculty and students to explore a common theme through multiple disciplines. The festival is free and open to the public.

The Massachusetts Constitution of 1780 declares that “the body politic is … a social compact by which the whole people covenants with each citizen and each citizen with the whole people.”

In an age characterized by a deeply polarized electorate and a nation defined by the rugged individualism of its citizens, does this notion still stand?

This question is just one of the ideas that will be explored as the bi-annual Festival of Arts and Ideas convenes to consider The Body Politic, beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 15 and 16 in the Ballroom on the campus of the University of Science and Arts.
