Evolving thoughts on origins

Many Wheaton students change their views on origins and the age of the earth after studying at Wheaton. The Record looked into the Theories of Origins class and differing views on origins at Wheaton.   In the spring of 2009, the semester in which Larry Funck, professor of chemistry emeritus, helps co-teach Wheaton’s popular Theories […]

Chicago Sports: Chicago Cubs

Baseball is back. And, for the first time in 108 years, the Cubs open the season as the reigning World Series Champs. It is arguably one of the most exciting times ever to be a Cubs fan because this team has a legitimate shot to repeat that success for years to come. The main reason […]

Chicago Sports: Chicago Blackhawks

If you’re new to Wheaton’s campus this year, or even last year, you might find this hard to believe: The Cubs were not the team that got Chicago excited until, well, this past October. Rather, in recent years, the Blackhawks were the team that united the city with a contagiously energetic aura, impressive playoff runs […]

Chicago Sports: Chicago Bulls

Carlos Boozer. Kirk Hinrich. Joakim Noah. Derrick Rose. These names are seen around campus on the backs of local Wheaton students’ jerseys supporting their hometown basketball team. All symbolize an era of the past for the Chicago Bulls. But now, we are all witnessing a new batch of Windy City players that have had their […]

Chicago Sports: Chicago Fire

As soon as I arrived at Wheaton, I quickly realized that there is a vibrant soccer community here on campus. Attendance for our varsity teams is excellent compared to many other schools in our conference, as well as across the nation. Intramural soccer participation is popular, and it is commonplace to see students and community […]

Quick like a bunny

The Thunder track and field squads spent Easter weekend competing in the Benedictine Eagle Relays. The girls finished first in a crowded field of talent, notching 95 points in the two-day event by relying on a stacked group of relay teams and some strong individual performances to edge out the other competitors. Four top-two finishes […]

Two top three finishes

Fresh off Easter weekend, the Thunder men’s golf team was back on the green this past Monday at the Elmhurst College Spring Invite. The Thunder’s seven-over-par score of 295 — only one shot behind first place Millikin — earned them a second place finish in the 11-team field. Junior Adam Eaton and sophomore Drew Engelking […]

Bouncing back

The Thunder’s four-game winning streak came to an end last Friday as the men dropped a doubleheader to Carroll. Wheaton tallied nine hits in both of the games, but were seemingly unable to string together more than a couple hits at a time, resulting in only four runs over the course of the doubleheader. The […]

Down on their luck

The Wheaton softball team has been hard at work this spring, having played 28 games since their season opener in March. Unfortunately, that hard work has yet to pay off. With a dismal record of 5-23, only 5 teams stand between the Thunder and the end of their season. Like the rest of Wheaton’s students, […]
