The Gulf South Conference announced its Fall Sports All-Decade Teams (2000-09) on July 8, and the CBU Buccaneers were well-represented — including the announcement of Missy Gregg ('03), pictured at left during the 2002 season, as GSC All-Time Women's Soccer Player. Gregg headlines the All-Time Women's Soccer squad, which also includes Veronica Botold ('07) and Margaret Saurin ('03) on the First Team. Gregg played just two seasons for the Lady Bucs but made quite an impression with back-to-back National Player of the Year honors as she shattered the CBU, GSC, and NCAA record books in 2001-02, scoring 135 goals and scoring 287 points in 47 games, leading CBU to a 47-2 record in two years, and winning the 2002 National Championship after finishing as runner-up in 2001. Gregg's 180 career goals and 394 points are the most in NCAA history among all divisions, men and women. Botold was a three-time All-GSC First Team defender. Saurin still holds the Division II single-season record in assists (35). The All-Time Second Team includes Arna Heimlund ('03), Anna Rask ('04), Sophia Rask ('04), Stacy-Jo Fletcher ('05), Anna Thorsdottir ('02), and former CBU coach Gareth O'Sullivan (1998-2003).
Matt Werakso ('07) and Barry Gibney ('03) are featured on the All-Time Men’s Soccer First Team. Werakso was a two-time All-GSC First Team and All-Tournament Team midfielder, and Gibney was a three-time All-GSC First Team forward. The All-Time Second Team includes Robert Mingo ('10), Tim Arnebold ('02), and Ian Ford ('04).
Stephen Hill ('09) was named to the Men’s Cross Country All-Decade First Team. The All-American runner was a four-time member of the First Team All-GSC and NCAA All-Region.
Laura Washington ('07) was named to the Volleyball All-Decade Second Team. The middle blocker was a four-time member of the All-GSC West and GSC West Player of the Year in 2005.
Players could only be nominated for the All-Decade Team if they competed in at least two seasons during the decade and were also named to the All-GSC First Team at least once. Each squad was broken up into First and Second Teams and Players and Coaches of the Decade were selected. The league office decided to designate the men’s and women’s soccer squads as “All-Time Teams” because the GSC has only sponsored the sport since 1996.

CBU recently became a member of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) to further its campus efforts toward building a healthy and just world. With this membership, CBU will receive support in advancing its sustainability initiatives throughout the University and in the community. Dr. Paul Haught, chair of the Religion & Philosophy department and the CBU Sustainability Committee, acknowledged the benefits that becoming a member of AASHE brings. "Joining AASHE represents an important milestone for CBU in expanding its academic and service missions," Haught stated. "Academically, it expresses that we understand our connections to the natural environment as relevant to the Lasallian principle of educating the whole person. AASHE’s abundant resources for teaching sustainability across the curriculum will be helpful here. In terms of service, membership in AASHE strengthens our commitment to the community by enhancing our efforts to diminish our ecological footprint and help improve the overall environmental quality of Memphis and the Mid-South."

All members of the CBU community have access to AASHE’s online resources and to opportunities for networking, information sharing, collaboration, and professional development to help advance sustainability at our campus. For more information, contact Dr. Haught at firstname.lastname@example.org.

• Plough Library now has an account to RefWorks, a web-based bibliographic citation manager available to all CBU faculty, staff, and students. What's more, students have life-long access, so it is available to alumni as well. RefWorks can be used to organize research (both personal and in collaboration with others), create personal databases, and generate bibliographies in APA, MLA, Turabian, and hundreds of other styles. Training sessions will be scheduled in the Library’s InfoLab throughout the fall semester. Specific times can also be scheduled to match the needs of a class or a group. For more information contact Kay Cunningham at 321-3430 or email@example.com or visit Refworks online here >>>.
