Managment senior Claude Nelson will finally put down his spikes and spandex as he looks to wear a cap and gown in the upcoming week. Nelson, known as Mookie, is one of Loyola’s strongest and most valued sprinters and helped his team break over 20 records in just this one season.
Records were meant to be broken seems to be the personal mantra of many members on the Loyola Track and Field team this season.
Following an indoor season where the men’s team broke nearly every school record in the event that they participated in and the women broke a few of their own, the team’s successes have carried over greatly into the outdoor season.
Loyola’s forward Robert Lovaglio was named to the third team All-Louisiana Men’s Basketball Team for the 2012-13 season by the Louisiana Sports Writer’s Association. The All-Louisiana team was voted on by a panel of media members and sports information directors from across the state.
