Go green at GV’s Zero Waste Football Games

Beginning at 7 p.m. at Lubbers Stadium during the first home football game of the year, GVSU’s Office of Sustainability will be hosting the fifth annual Zero Waste Football Games. This program aims to decrease the amount of waste that enters landfills during football games by educating fans on the correct bin to dispose of their garbage. Volunteers will be near waste stations throughout the stadium to assist visitors in placing their refuse in either the recycle, compost or landfill bins.

Grand Valley's Gunslinger

Every good football team needs a good quarterback: a confident leader who is calm under pressure and can make big plays in crunch time. Luckily for the Grand Valley State football team, they have that leader in Bart Williams. The senior has been at the helm for GVSU for a while, starting 39 games for the Lakers. In those games, he has completed 642 of 1,090 passes for 9,854 yards and 105 touchdowns, ranking him first amongst active returning Division II quarterbacks in those respective categories.

Grand Valley State football’s all-time leading rusher, Martayveus ‘Marty’ Carter, was shot while at a gas station in East Chicago, Ind.  Carter was initially in critical condition but has since pulled through, though his journey to full recovery is far from over. He is currently facing paralysis from a bullet being lodged in his spine. No further updates have been made available by his family. 


Quick hits: Women's golf, football, men's basketball

If there were ever a time to find their winning groove, the Grand Valley State women’s golf team found the perfect time to do so right before the GLIAC Championships. After earning a first-place finish at the NC4K Classic on Tuesday, April 10, the Lakers repeated success with another victory, this time at the Ashland Invitational on Saturday, April 14, to close out the regular season. The final day of competition was canceled due to rain.
