There’s a lot going on this weekend. See a show, watch some sports, support your friends, and have a great weekend! If you’re gonna procrastinate, you might as well do something worthwhile.
The Women’s Soccer Team is in Texas right meow, preparing to play in the NCAA Final Four on Friday against Trinity of Texas. If/when they win, they’ll play in the Championship game on Saturday. Like the Middlebury College Athletics Page on Facebook for updates on this game and others.
After the first day of practice in San Antonio – “can we get an extension on our final project?”
Meanwhile, back on campus, Women’s Squash is taking on Colby from 9 am – 1 pm on Saturday. They lost their first match against Hamilton a couple weeks back. It was close, but not quite as close as the Auburn – Alabama Game last weekend. Go see the team in action and check out the brand new squash center if you haven’t already.
Women’s Ice Hockey will face Castleton at 3 pm on Saturday. With a 5-1 record, the team had its first loss to Plattsburgh last week. Read about that game and every game on The Middlebury Campus‘s online sports section. Also, don’t miss your chance to hit the ice with the players in the annual “Skate With the Panthers” event after the game, complete with autograph signing and, if you’re lucky, a handshake from Captain Sara Ugalde ’14 (below).

The College has partnered with the Northeast Sports Network to provide live video coverage of all kinds of sporting events, including the hockey game and the Women’s Basketball game at Skidmore on Saturday.
Harm’s Way is a badass student-produced play in the Hepburn Zoo. Get tickets here, they’re goin’ fast. Shows are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 pm and one late show on Friday at 10.
From Director Matt Ball ’14:
Set in the chaos of a shattered America, this play follows the journey of a man named Santouche, who after committing a murder must avoid harm at all costs. He makes plans to meet his lover, a woman only ever called “Isle of Mercy” at a place of refuge, but along the way they both encounter a bizarre mix of con artists, pimps, and a man who claims to be William McKinley. Filled with distinctly American strangeness and charm, Harm’s Way is a (sometimes brutally) dark comedy that deals primarily with the loss of control and order in one’s world.
If you’ve never been to Riddim, check out this year’s show, called the VMAs. The late/drunk show is sold out already, but get your tickets for the early show at 8 pm on Saturday now. If you need convincing, watch this footage of last year’s show. This year’s show will be similar but different.
Don’t miss the senior thesis work of Adeline Cleveland ’13.5 and Amy Donahue ’13.5. Tickets for the Dance Show, “Figures of Speech,” are on sale here. Shows are Thursday and Friday at 8 pm.
Figure of Speech, like a metaphor or perhaps onomatopoeia
The College occasionally brings some world-renound outside artists to perform on campus. On Friday at 8 pm, China’s most accomplished and in-demand classical guitarist, Xuefei Yang, is performing in the MCA concert hall. Tickets are $25 to the public and $6 to students. So you’re basically saving $19 if you go. Watch her performance from the 2011 International Guitar Festival.
Iron Eyes Cody is a brand new student band led by none other than Evan Allis ’15.5. They’re playing their second show ever in Palmer on Friday at 8:15 pm sharp.
