Men’s basketball caps strong season with NCAA tournament berth

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The Skyhawks men’s basketball team finished the 2016-17 season 26-7 overall -- the second most wins in program history, after last season's 28 wins. The Skyhawks rank No. 23 in the NCAA Division II final poll, and rode their success to the semifinal round of the South Central Regional Tournament.

Another high note for the season was guard Joshua Blaylock, who wrapped up his dazzling Skyhawks career with several awards, including the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Player of the Year, the National Association of Basketball Coaches All-South Central Region first team, and National Association of Basketball Coaches All-America First Team honors -- the first Skyhawk to earn NABC All-America honors.

Also, for the second straight season Head Coach Bob Pietrack (Exercise Science, ’04) was named a finalist for the 2017 Red Auerbach Award by the Jewish Coaches Association.

Village Aid team brings engineering skills to remote villages [photos]

Village Aid team brings engineering skills to remote villages [photos]

A team from FLC and Durango spent more than two weeks in May constructing a water system and communal taps in Than Taung, Myanmar.

The Village Aid Project is an all-volunteer campus program, open to students in any major, that brings together students, faculty, and community professionals to improve the infrastructure in impoverished communities in Latin America and Asia. 

This spring's team included two faculty, three community partners, and eight FLC students, who travelled to the Shan State, in Myanmar. There they also conducted monitoring and evaluation in five communities where water systems were implemented in prior years, and assessed new communities for water implementation projects in the summer of 2019.
