With their 79-74 overtime victory over the Concordia Cobbers last Saturday, the Pipers are just one win away from clinching a playoff spot. “We have a huge stretch of three games to close out the season and see if we can sol... READ MORE »»

    Cody Vaughn is about to enter Hamline history. He is the first Hamline student to open up Winter WonderJam on Feb. 18. You might think that would make him nervous, but Vaughn, who goes by the name Covenant onstage, laughed off that question when I sat down with him over J-term. “I wait for this. This is the stuff I dream about. I’ve wanted this since I was a freshman. I just want it to be good. But I’m not nervous,” Vaughn said. Ahead... READ MORE »»
