What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Inside this issue: Homecoming Events New Carroll Mascot New Student Officers The Prospector = Carroll College Student Newspaper JL Helena, Montana MORE THAN JUST A GAME by molly priddy and marti alltucker quarterback John Barnett carries the ball photo by Jon Ebelt, Independent Record Homecoming started on Mon­ day, with an explosion of purple and gold all over campus. Stu­ dents and faculty sported their best Carroll apparel to show school pride. Festivities were planned throughout the week, and fostered amicable compe­ tition between the freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior classes. One of the most anticipated events came on Wednesday night, with free bowling at the Sleeping Giant Lanes. The Lanes ran out of their gross, smelly bowling shoes because so many Carroll students piled in to show off their talent. Matt Mitchell, a senior psychology student and member of the win­ ning senior class bowling team, was asked where he learned to bowl. “I spent three weeks in middle school perfecting my craft,” replied Mitchell. “That was the most beautiful bowling swing I have ever seen in my life,” said teammate and senior biology major Calvin Schlep, “and I grew up in the lanes.” Thursday brought a new game to Carroll - water balloon hu­ man battleship. The game was played on the football prac­ tice field. The balloons were launched from the top of Guad hill, aimed at the helpless class senators on the football practice field. We have a feeling this went from being a competition to a warning: Listen to the stu­ dents you represent or else... Friday morning. 24 hours and counting until game time and the campus was getting a nice makeover in preparation for alumni, friends, and family. There would be several tours led by the yellow-vested student ambassadors, so it only made sense that there should be a banner competition between the dorms. Guadalupe Hall sported a nice tribute to the comfortable cli­ ché of cheerleaders and football players. Borromeo Hall decided that pig Latin was the best way to express their pride with a banner that read, “Orrobay Ulesray.” For those of you that are not fluent in pig Latin, that means “Borro Rules.” Clever. Trinity Hall chose a more classic approach, with a haloed Carroll “C” fused with a cross. St. Charles Hall did not reveal their banner until Saturday when a large, white sheet was unfurled during the National An­ them for all of the alumni, friends, family and Orediggers to see. Friday night. 16 hours until game time. The football team, the cheerleading squad, student fans, alumni gathered together for a barbeque followed with a pep rally. Cneers and applause could be heard all over campus. Coach Mike Van Diest kicked off the rally with a thank-you for the all the support and removed any doubt for a victory. Enthusiasm was high when senior co-captains Josh Schmidt and Bryce Doak gave speeches. “There was a great turnout. That’s the kina of enthusiasm and competitive edge that we needed to keep us pumped up in close ball games,” said Schmidt. Saturday morning. T-mi- HOMECOMING continued on page 8
