Tailgate and Football
Cannon opened up the tailgate season with a bang. This past Saturday was the home opener for the football team and we decided to celebrate by hosting a club-wide tailgate. We had a bunch of people in the lawn playing games, eating food and just enjoying the camaraderie.
The game went pretty much as expected, our Tigers absolutely obliterated Monmouth, winning by a score of 51-9. Once again all touchdowns were contributed by Cannon members. Senior Stephen Carlson caught two touchdown passes, Senior Charlie Volker ran for one, and Senior John Lovett threw for five and ran one in as well. But the big story of the day was our own IM Chair, senior Jesper Horsted’s record setting day. Jesper came into the day 2 touchdowns shy of the program touchdown record. He caught three taking the record outright.
The Fall IM season is upon us and the Club is off to a hot start. The flag football team got a big win and the Club’s three Spikeball teams all won their games. Our championship t-shirts from last year came in and we look to add to the wardrobe with a strong performance this year.
This weekend we have our fall semi formal! It will be a journey around the world as we have a variety of different “countries” set up. Bill and the rest of the staff have a number of amazing dishes on the menu and we could not be more excited. Check back next week to see pictures of the event.
Alumni in Germany
Kiersten Falck ’18 and Mason Darrow ’17 were able to enjoy some time together in Germany at Oktoberfest. Here is a picture of the two happily enjoying the festivities. We are always so happy to see our alumni Gunners maintaining the strong relationships they developed in their time at the Club!
