Another semester, another victory.
The biannual kickball extravaganza between The Herald and the Indy ended, as always, in Herald glory. A six-run first inning and an outstanding display by Adam Toobin ’15 sandwiched a dominant 13-9 victory for the good guys.
A sound beating.
The MVPs of the game are Oliver Rosenbloom ’13 and Alex Kaplan ’14 with a HR each, and Liz Carr ’14 and her accomplice Drew with run-saving grabs in the field.
The Indy tried its very stripe-laden best, first extending the game from six to nine innings, then pulling a mystical run from the sky and finally recruiting two innocent baseball-tossing athletes to pinch kick and make the final score a tad less embarrassing. Keep trying, boys and girls.
The all-time series now stands at 10-3, and the 122nd editorial board follows in its elders’ footsteps by retiring undefeated.

The Herald reigns supreme once more.
On a cool and clear afternoon marking the 12th game in Herald-Indy history, the super squad of cub reporters, photographers and editors took down The Indy, 13-5, in a laugher. The all-time series now stands at 9-3 in favor of the good guys.
It took some time for the staff to warm up, but a five-run outburst in the bottom of the 4th inning erased The Indy’s puny one-run lead and gave The Herald a lead it would not relinquish.
Props to all who came for great play AND good sportsmanship (!) and particularly to the winners of the co-MVP award: Senior Staff Writers Mathias Heller and Margaret Nickens for coming up huge with timely hits in both five-run innings, and News Editor David Chung for hittin’ singles, roundin’ the bases and scorin’ runs suavely, in boat shoes.

The Athletics Department will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. to officially announce Jack Hayes as the new athletics director. CBSSports writer Jeff Goodman broke the news on Twitter last night.
Hayes, a Rhode Island native who is in his 8th year as AD at Hofstra University, will replace Michael Goldberger at the end of the academic year. In 2009, Hofstra Athletics chose to eliminate its varsity football program — you can read Hayes talk about the decision here.
It’s an era of big changes for the athletics department — on Monday the 16, the new fitness and aquatics center (and the snazzy new pool) will officially open.
Check out tomorrow’s Herald for extensive coverage of today’s events, including interviews with both Hayes and Goldberger, and make sure to keep track of the BDH Sports Twitter for updates throughout the day.
