The bounty hunter had been told the details, but not the big picture, as always. The Argevinian spaceport (a large space station off of Argevin IV) had been compromised by some sort of parasitic infection or infestation or something or other, and it was her job to clear it out. Rescue any survivors, eradicate the pathogen, and clear out of there. She had been paid half already, and the other half was waiting for her on her successful return. So, routine.
The No. 5 Colorado School of Mines Women’s soccer team played four games over the course of eight days and were victorious in all four appearances, getting shutouts in three of them. On Friday Oct. 11, Colorado Mesa visited Mines; then, the lady Orediggers hit the road for games on Sunday October, 13 at Colorado Christian University and Wednesday October, 16, at Regis before finishing off this stretch with a home game this past Friday against Fort Lewis.
The 18th-ranked Lady Orediggers volleyball team took to the court twice this weekend to defend their place atop the RMAC volleyball standings, and came away with two decisive victories.
The No. 18 Colorado School of Mines volleyball team started their three game road trip at CSU-Pueblo on October 10 and at Adams State in Alamosa on October 11, winning both matches.
Mines beat CSUP in straight sets, 3-0. Mines jumped out to an early lead in the first set, and eventually held a 10 point advantage at 17-7. CSU-Pueblo would fight back to within three at 24-21, but Mines scored the set point on a service error by CSUP to take the first set 25-21.
After 89 minutes of scoreless play against the Adams State Grizzlies on October 11, the Orediggers lost a heartbreaker in what would become their first shutout appearance of the 2013 season. The Orediggers managed an astounding 27 total shots during the game, their third most of the season, but could never find the back of the net.
The 16-day U.S. government shutdown came and went. It was the first government shutdown in 17 years. Although being dealt with in Washington, the shutdown did affect some Colorado School of Mines students. For example, with national parks being closed, visiting them was off-limits during Fall Break. But the largest effect was the shutdown of information, as research, labs, and even summer internship searches were affected in some way. This week, Minds at Mines asked a few undergraduate students if they had been affected by the shutdown and how.
