  • Women’s soccer lose to Southern Connecticut; 3-4 overall and 1-4 in conferenceWomen’s soccer lose to Southern Connecticut; 3-4 overall and 1-4 in conference

    Saint Anselm women’s soccer saw two thundering victories in their first two games of the season, both of which were against nonconference teams. Conference play has not gone so well for the Hawks. They have lost four of their past five conference games and their fourth defeat came at the hands of Franklin Pierce University on Saturday Sept. 23. The Hawks fell 3-1 to the Franklin Pierce Ravens away at Sodexo Stadium. The Hawks scored early off a goal by junior forward Corey Murray. She was set up beautifully from a cross by freshman midfielder Nicole White in the 15th minute. White continues her hot start to the year with her seventh assist in just six games. Her seven assists are the most by a Saint Anselm Hawk since 2008. White stands at seventh all time in program history for assists in a single season, a real feat for a freshman playing in her first collegiate season. Seeing as the Hawks are just approaching their halfway mark in the season, it can be expected that White will continue to shine on the pitch. Although the game started fairly evenly, Saint Anselm simply lost control of the game. In a matter of 13 minutes the score line dramatically changed from 1-0 to 3-1 Franklin Pierce. In the 23rd minute, junior defender Marta Turmo put on in the back of the net for the Hawks to even up the score. Just six minutes later, senior midefielder Nalina Valaydon scored for the Ravens, bringing the score to 2-1. Just six minutes after Valaydon’s goal, the Hawks once again found themselves in trouble. A penalty kick was awarded to the Ravens following a handball in the box. Junior midfielder Nathalia Maria da Silva put the Ravens successfully converted the penalty to put the Ravens up by two.    The teams traded chances in the second half but neither side could convert. The Ravens got help from junior midfielder Bruna Tavares and sophomore midfielder Gabi Pereira who both had an assist a piece. The Hawks had 8 shots in total but with only 5 on target while the Ravens had 21 shots with only eleven on target. Freshman goalie Payton Wildrick got the start in the second half between the posts for the Hawks and led the Hawks with five saves. Junior goalie Elise Bouchard started the game but was removed at the end of the first half because the game was about to get out of hand. Senior goalie Casey Cook had four saves on the night and improved her record to 4-1-1. The Hawks started off the week well with an amazing game against Southern Connecticut State University in which we saw the Hawks win 1-0 in Overtime. In what was the program’s first NE-10 victory of the season, we saw an amazing game from both teams. It was something we have seen before from freshman Nicole White who crossed in a beautiful ball to senior midfielder Jessica Kaufman who volleyed in the cross at the back post. With such little time left in the first half, it was great to see the Hawks on top. This was junior goalie Elise Bouchard’s first shutout of her career. She saved all four shots that she faced. Kaufman scored her second goal of the year and looks to keep them coming. Nicole White now leads the NE-10 in assists with a total of seven. The Hawks will come back home to play Bentley at 4:00PM on Wednesday Sept. 27 at Melucci Stadium. The Hawks are looking to rebound and start to get back on track for a place in the NE-10 playoffs. Sometimes experience matters, and while freshman can help and take over a game, the Hawks vitally need their seasoned veterans to step up and lead their team.

  • Hawk volleyball continues win streak in yet another strong performanceHawk volleyball continues win streak in yet another strong performance

    Saint Anselm Women’s volleyball team continues to outshine their opponents in win after win. In their latest game on Sept. 23, the Hawks defeated Southern Connecticut State 3-0. This was the seventh consecutive victory for the Hawks and moves their record to 9-4 for the season. Notably, senior Katy Teets lead the Hawks and the match with an astounding 15 kills, while senior Danielle Isbell lead the match with 14 digs. Although the final score may look like an easy win for Saint Anselm, they certainly had to fight for this victory. The story of the match was the push back from the Hawks as they refused to quit. Specifically, in the first set they fended off a quick 7-1 lead by the Southern Connecticut Owls and overcame a 15-11 deficit to take the first set 25-19.   The Hawks would fall behind again 16-12 in the second set. They quickly scrambled together to once again take, this time 25-23. The Owls showed signs of life in the final set behind a 5-1 run taking the lead 21-20 in the final set. However, the Hawks quickly shut down any hope of victory as they kept the Owls from scoring another point for the duration of the set. Saint Anselm took the set with a score of 25-21. With the end of the third set, the Hawks had won the match, 3-0. On their journey to their current seven-game win streak, the Hawks have only given up more than one set in a match once. This is an admirable turnaround after the shaky start early in the season. The Hawks had given up more than one set in all but one game. It would appear that Saint Anselm has buffed out their early season scratches and is ready to firmly compete. With the victory vs Southern Connecticut, the Hawks increase their season record to 9-4 overall and 3-0 in conference play. The Hawks face division foe Bentley at home on Sept. 26. This will be the second matchup of the two following Saint Anselm’s historic first ever victory over Bentley on Sept. 9. Their last encounter was an extremely competitive performance. Bentley will attempt to avenge their 3-1 defeat. The Hawks look to oust Bentley once again and continue their winning streak to eight games and create some breathing room in the standings. After their match vs Bentley, Saint Anselm will prepare for a double header on Saturday Sept. 30 when they will face off against American International at 11 and LIU Post at 3PM. Both games will be at home for the Hawks.

  • Saint Anselm men’s soccer struggles mid season in loss to AdelphiSaint Anselm men’s soccer struggles mid season in loss to Adelphi

    The Hawks failed to get anything going on Saturday Sept. 23 against the third-ranked undefeated powerhouse, Adelphi, as they fall 3-0. It was an offensive struggle as they could only garner one shot on net the entire match. The team was coming off its first win of the season on Sept. 20 vs St. Michael’s. Goals from junior defender Keith Hill and senior midfielder Jack Heintzelman helped cement a 2-1 road victory over the Purple Knights. Junior goalie Jacob Rostkowski got his second start in net and secured the win for the Hawks. Unfortunately for the Hawks, the winning momentum did not continue. Adelphi found a way to score within the first ten minutes of the game. Senior forward Andre De Giorgi scored off a rebound for Panthers at the 9:26 mark. This was just the start to a heavy attack-minded game, dominated by Adelphi.    Senior goalie Helio Meirelles Neto was pounded with nine shots on goal and managed to come away with six saves for the Hawks. The lone shot on net for Saint Anselm came from the boot of Heintzelman, which nearly tied the game. The Hawks went into halftime only down 1-0 in what was still a manageable game. Adelphi came out strong after the half, putting two in the back of the net in rapid succession. The first goal came off a through ball from junior midfielder Stephen Megaloudis to junior forward James Thristino. Less than a minute later came a one timer from senior midfielder Matt Giaconelli to graduate student forward Alex Varkatzas. The six saves from Neto give him a total of 23 on the year. The shot on goal for Heintzelman was his fifth of the season, for which he has two goals to show for. Adelphi outshot Saint A’s a total of 18-3 in the affair, a telltale sign to being outmatched. Saint Anselm falls to 1-4-1 with the loss, while Adelphi climbed to an impressive 6-0-1 to remain undefeated this season. The goalie situation will be one thing to watch going forward. Interestingly enough, the Hawks have yet to lose a game started by Rostkowski. Saint Anselm stands 1-0-1 with the junior in net. On the other hand, despite Neto’s solid play and his experience as a senior athlete, the team is 0-4-0 in games he has started. This is something Coach Bruno Victal may have to consider next time around. Saint A’s looks to rebound against Franklin Pierce (5-0-1) at home on Tuesday Sept. 26. This will be a good shot to prove their mettle against another tough team. It will be a big game for the Hawks, who are trying to steer their sails in a season that has gone off course thus far.

Although she has yet to score a goal for the Hawks, she has certainly done her part in setting up 7 for them. Creation of the “Hawks Soar Higher” Award Daron Montgomery, Saint Anselm’s athletic director, recently announced the creation of the Hawks Soar Higher Award. This award was created by the Department of Athletics and will be awarded to two individuals who are active in student-athlete affairs and contribute to their success. The award will be awarded every month to two individuals who are employed by Saint Anselm outside of athletics. This month’s recipients were Peter Hagerty of the College’s housekeeping and physical plan team and Michelle Lavoie of Dining Services who have both done wonders for athletes in Stoutenburgh and Davison Hall over the years.

  • Hawk golf heads to NE-10 Championship following two tournamentsHawk golf heads to NE-10 Championship following two tournaments

    The Saint Anselm golf team has competed in two tournaments this fall. They came in first out of eleven teams at the Bowdoin Invitational and tied for eighth out of 14 teams at the Penmen Invitational. In both tournaments, junior Hawk golfer Steve Hunt led the Saint Anselm team in scoring. Hunt led not only the Hawks, but also the entire field at the first tournament this fall, the Bowdoin Invitational. Hunt claimed Men’s Golf Co-Golfer of the Week honors the week after winning the Bowdoin Invitational. “After this summer, I felt really good about my game and wanted it to transition into this fall right away,” said Hunt in an interview with the Crier. “Both days I played very simple golf just trying to keep it in play and stay away from trouble. The course was set up pretty tough in terms of pin position, but I kept it going to shoot even par both days,” Hunt continued. Hunt was very confident about his team after winning the Bowdoin Invitational, saying, “It was just an overall confidence booster for our team. It goes to show that our work can start to transition into our scores. This year we feel like we have the strongest chance to make it to the regional tournament.” Junior Hawk golfer Billy Argus also commented on the win. He repeated some of Hunt’s thoughts, saying, “We came out of the gates hot at Bowdoin by winning by twenty-two shots overall. That was a good start to the season, as Steve also won by eight shots.” The Hawk golfers did, in fact, win the Bowdoin Invitational at the Brunswick Golf Club in Brunswick, Maine on Sept. 9 and 10 by 22 strokes. The Hawks finished with a total of 603 strokes over the two days, while second place Endicott College finished with a total of 625 strokes. As mentioned above, Steve Hunt finished first overall at a score of even par, that being 144 strokes over the two days. That was eight better than second place. Not only did the Hawks claim the top overall score, but they also claimed second overall. Billy Argus finished with a score of 152 over the two days. Seniors Nick Carter and Tad Link finished tied for ninth overall both finishing with scores of 157. Finally, senior Robert Cole finished with a score of 159, good enough to land him tied for sixteenth. Eight days after the end of the Bowdoin Invitational, the Saint Anselm team traveled to the Hanover Country Club in Hanover, N.H., on Monday, Sept. 18 and 19 to compete in the Penmen Invitational. The Hawks finished in ninth place out of the fourteen teams competing in the tournament. The Hawks combined total score for the two days was 584 strokes. The winning score was owned by Southern New Hampshire University, that being 555 strokes. The leader for the Hawk team, Steve Hunt, finished with a score of 138, good enough to leave him tied for fourth overall. When asked about this tournament, Hunt responded, “This tournament was pretty absurd in the fact that through two rounds I had one bogey and one birdie and the rest of my scores were all pars. After putting together a good round the first day of one under par, I knew that if I wanted to take a shot at the lead I would have to shoot a score of two under. After starting out even through my first nine holes, I knew I had to start making some birdies, but unfortunately, my shots didn’t fall. Overall, I played good just not good enough.” Billy Argus had this to say when asked about the tournament, “Two freshmen Hawks played well in their first tournament. I really think the future is looking bright for the Hawks. We expect to contend in the NE-10 championship. If we play well, we will be able to win it.” As Argus stated, two freshmen Hawk golfers played in their first tournament as Saint Anselm student-athletes. These two were Maxwell Ratner and Alec Brunelle. Ratner finished with a two-day score of 146, tied for thirty-fourth, and Brunelle finished tied for forty-eighth overall with a total score of 150. Hunt commented on the team’s play at this tournament, stating, “We had an impressive start from the freshman Max Ratner during this tournament. The rest of the boys were either off or on.” The other players in the tournament for the Hawks were senior Nick Carter and junior Billy Argus. Carter finished tied for 55th with a score of 151 strokes, and Argus finished tied for 69th with a score of 156 strokes. The Hawks will next play in the Northeast-10 Championship on Monday, Oct. 2. This will be hosted by Lake Sunapee Country Club in New London, N.H. “Next week is probably the most important tournament of the fall. If we come in top 3 we can go to regionals in the spring. I know the seniors have had this on their minds for a while so we are looking forward to next week,” Hunt had to say about the upcoming tournament. The expected line-up for the Hawks at the upcoming NE-10 Championship tournament consists of senior Tad Link, senior Nick Carter, junior Billy Argus, junior Steve Hunt, and freshman Alec Brunelle.

  • Football falls to Stonehill in fourth consecutive loss of the seasonFootball falls to Stonehill in fourth consecutive loss of the season

    The Saint Anselm Hawks football team lost to Stonehill 28-14 on Sept. 23. Senior Linebacker Eric Mercer moved up to ninth in Saint Anselm history in career tackles, making nine tackles for a total of 218 in his four seasons on the team. Junior wideout Kyle Hill had eight catches for 77 yards and a touchdown, bringing him up to fifth in Saint Anselm history in receiving yards with 1,597 yards in three seasons. The Stonehill Skyhawks started off the Battle for the Bronze Hawk with a 55 yard touchdown at 1:24 into the first quarter, and never looked back. After a three and out for Saint Anselm, Stonehill added onto their lead with a 7 play, 49 yard drive. The Hawks would answer at the start of the second quarter, with quarterback Eric Fairweather rushing in a nine yard score to bring Saint Anselm to within seven. Stonehill would throw for another touchdown to extend the lead to 21-7 at halftime. Sophomore Gabe Elliott would return the kickoff 31 yards, but the Hawks could not score again before the half. The Skyhawks tallied 238 yards of total offense in the first half, while holding Saint Anselm to just seven first downs. Saint Anselm began the second half with a quick drive, ending with Hill reeling in a four yard touchdown pass from Fairweather. That would be the only score of the third, with both defenses standing strong. Despite being down by a touchdown, Saint Anselm’s offense could not generate another score. Midway through the fourth quarter, Stonehill would cap off a seven play, 60 yard drive to go up 14. The Hawks would begin the following drive with two long receptions from Hill for 21 yards and Junior Brian Zec for 10 yards. However, a 14 yard sack and intentional grounding penalty had the Hawks looking at a third and 39 from midfield. Fairweather would throw an interception on the next play, with 1:40 remaining in the game. Stonehill would run the clock down and claim the Bronze Hawk trophy for the 11th year in a row. Fairweather finished 16-for-31 in the air, with 139 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. Fairweather was the leading rusher for the offense, running for 61 yards on 14 carries. Sophomore linebacker CJ Miller had nine total tackles, while Senior captain Liam Gillis lead the team with 4 solo tackles. Saint Anselm moves to 0-4 on the year, and 0-3 in games against NE-10 opponents. The team has six games remaining on their schedule, including three home games on Oct. 14 against Assumption, Nov. 4 against Southern Connecticut and Nov. 11 against LIU Post. Senior defensive lineman Zack Sirowich told the Crier, “Passion and love for the game is what drives us as a team. We are getting better week in and week out, and it’s beginning to show during our games.” The Hawks will travel to Springfield, Ma on Sept. 30 to take on the AIC Yellow Jackets.

  • Field hockey continues to bring forth impressive results with 2-1 winField hockey continues to bring forth impressive results with 2-1 win

    Hawk field hockey has achieved some impressive feats over the past couple years and the list of their accomplishments is only growing. On Sept. 23 the Hawks kept their undefeated streak alive while breaking another school record in the process. In a Saturday afternoon contest at Grappone Stadium, the Hawks beat Pace University in a 2-1 overtime thriller. The win lifts Saint Anselm’s record to a perfect 7-0, thus making this start of the season their best in program history. Saint Anselm (#5) handed the 8th ranked Pace University Setters their first loss of the season. The Hawks got on the board first in the 23rd minute of play, when sophomore Hannah Friend netted her fourth goal of the year off an assist by senior Mia Vecchione. With just 32 seconds left, Pace responded to Friend’s goal with one of their own to tie the game, forcing things into overtime. After an initial failed corner, Vecchione netted her third goal of the season 3:21 into OT. In a post-game interview with Hawk Athletics, Vecchione credited the win to her team’s collective determination. “On a hot day like today you just wanna finish it, so we got into a huddle before we started playing, and we said right off the bat we are just gonna put it in. We got a corner, we didn’t execute on it, but then we said next time we get a shot on net it’s going in and that’s what we did.” The Hawks defense also did their part to grab the victory. Pace’s lone goal was their only shot of the night on Saint Anselm’s freshman goal keeper Julia Hand. The rookie’s career record has now improved to a flawless 5-0. Pace’s goalkeeper Lesly Sanchez Alvarez had five saves on seven Saint Anselm shots. Saint Anselm’s Head Coach, Carolyn King Robitaille, knew getting past Pace’s strong defense would be the greatest challenge. “They haven’t really led up more than one goal in all their games this season, they are really strong defensively. I thought if we could score two goals we could win this game, and we had to score two, so we did what we wanted to do and came out with the win.” The Hawks will attempt to keep their perfect streak alive on the road for three consecutive away games this week. They will face off against Franklin Pierce, Southern Connecticut State, and Mercy. Saint Anselm’s next home match at Grappone Stadium is set for Wednesday Oct. 4th at 7 PM, against NE-10 rival Merrimack College.

  • Hawks return to the Hilltop to find completely renovated athletic facilitiesHawks return to the Hilltop to find completely renovated athletic facilities

    While Saint Anselm students were relaxing and enjoying their summers on the beach or by the pool, Saint Anselm College Athletics was hard at work, making significant improvements to athletic facilities across campus before their student-athletes and fans returned to the Hilltop. When the fall sports teams returned to campus, they found the court in Stoutenburgh  completely sanded, refinished, with a new design; the Melucci Field scoreboard replaced; the equipment in Spagnuolo Fitness Center new and improved; as well as updated locker rooms, varsity film room, and a multi-purpose room ready to use at their disposal. These renovations were all possible through a combination of capital project improvements, fundraising projects, and operational plans. “The majority of the upgrades that we are most excited about were done in the Carr Center. It was a domino effect, because we had a gift to redo the women’s soccer locker room, and we made a decision to purchase lockers that are NCAA-approved for every single locker in the Carr Center. We also installed flat-screen televisions for the teams to watch film, and it looks really good. At the end of this process, the teams have upgraded locker facilities that are year-round and the quality of the lockers are much better. We made one room into a film room with theatre style seating. The seating in this room can fit a whole squad,” said Dr. Steven R. DiSalvo, president of the college. “We were very excited to get this done for the teams.” Daron Montgomery, athletic director at Saint Anselm College, explained the importance of these updates in regards to student-athlete recruitment, retention, and experience: “The aesthetic improvements and branding are key elements when students and recruited student-athletes visit campus. The new equipment, locker rooms and other upgrades have a huge impact on our student-athlete experience. Hawks student-athletes feel a true sense of pride when the walk the hallways of our athletic venues.”

  • Brian Stankiewicz, recent graduate and newly appointed head coachBrian Stankiewicz, recent graduate and newly appointed head coach

    Brian Stankiewicz, graduate of Saint Anselm College and two-time captain of Hawks Cross Country team, was named Interim head coach for the men’s and women’s teams in early August. The Crier sat down with the Merrimack, NH native to discuss his new position and how he is adjusting to his role at such a young age. Stankiewicz majored in Accounting and minored in Criminal Justice while studying at Saint Anselm. He ran as a member of the Cross Country team in 24 races over the span of four years. Upon graduation, Brian planned on applying for law school, but decided to work for a year and save up money to help offset the cost. He heard that the Cross Country team was looking for a head coach and he submitted his application, hoping to get the job. Stankiewicz said he always wanted to get into coaching following his years as a student athlete. He was not sure the extent that the role of coaching would play in his life. However, the drive to lead has always been there. “To get into the game this early is great” he said. Stankiewicz plans to continue coaching as long as he can. Coach Stankiewicz is happy with the way things have gone thus far this season. He noted that team morale has improved and everyone is invested in performing well.  He also said that both the men and women were beating teams they were expected to beat, while giving everyone else a run for their money. The transition appears to have gone well for the recent graduate. Stankiewicz reflected that it has gone very smoothly, which he is pleased with. Fellow coaches have reached out to him and welcomed him to the program. His athletes have kept things very professional with their former captain. Being so close in age to his runners, Stankiewicz has had no trouble relating to them. He is able to give help and advice regarding classes and school work and remarked, “It’s really important for the coach to connect with athletes outside of the sport.” The hardest part of Stankiewicz’s transition has not been coaching or keeping his runners motivated, but the behind-the-scenes work. Brian said he saw glimpses of what coaching entails off the field over his past four years, but had no idea how much paperwork had to be done every month. He is still learning and adjusting. When asked what the best part of the transition has been, Stankiewicz joked with a wide smile, “I can stay in shape.” He then remarked, “I love Saint A’s, and to work at the institution I went to and ran four years for is awesome.” Stankiewicz has certainly done his homework. He remarked that he has been doing a lot of research on different workouts and drills that will help his runners reach the next step. Coach Stankiewicz had only good things to say about his new position. For a guy who loves to run, it certainly seems like a good fit. He stated, “I love running, I’ve been running since I was in 8th grade.” Shortly after his interview, Stankiewicz was seen running with the field-liner on his way to mark off the trails for his athletes. Although he’s is no longer running competitively, Brian Stankiewicz certainly continues to move quickly.

  • Students’ weekend of service exposes them to national issue of povertyStudents’ weekend of service exposes them to national issue of poverty

    Urban Immersions, a mission of service and solidarity offered by Saint Anselm’s Office of Campus Ministry, connects students with opportunities to serve communities in need. Through these immersions, busy college students are encouraged to get involved and make a direct impact on others’ lives by taking part in these trips. These trips place participants directly in areas in need and set them to work for a particular cause. With a mission statement modelled by the message of Matthew 25, the Urban Immersion program allows students to take a weekend away from their own lives to experience how others live their daily lives according to their own reality. The program furthermore “seeks to guide participants in the direction of service in the name of God”. Because “it is the goal of the program to serve as an affective experience in which students have a greater awareness of poverty and injustice particularly in the inner city, and experience themselves in a new arena”, students should take advantage of these trips. The mission statement goes on further, saying, “We hope students will be awakened to the world and themselves in a new dimension and be refreshed by the possibilities and potential of their very own hands to impact the lives of others in a Christ-like way through social justice.” For this most recent trip, a group involving student leaders Hannah Miles, Casey Flanigan, and Jillian Rigby “will be working with the St Francis Inn, a soup kitchen run by Franciscans in inner city Philadelphia”, as the Campus Minister Andrew Fellows explained. He adds that Saint Anselm’s contribution to St. Francis Inn did not begin this past weekend, but rather,  “[Campus Ministry] have sent many groups to work with St. Francis Inn over the years, both for week long trips for WBA or SBA, and for weekend long Urban Immersions.” Urban Immersions trips, similar to Winter Break Alternative or Spring Break Alternative trips, are one of the many options for Saint Anselm students to start out with service. For students looking to participate in Urban Immersions, Andrew Fellows explains that “participants will prepare and serve meals, deliver meals to homes, assist in thrift store clean up, and partake in women’s shelter outreach”. In terms of scheduling participants’ time, “the group serves on Saturday morning and Sunday morning,” Andrew Fellows explains, and “on Saturday evening they have a few free hours to take in the local culture and history of Philadelphia.” “St. Francis Inn is a bit unique among soup kitchens because they use a ‘restaurant’ style model”, said Fellows. “When guests come in (and they are always referred to as guests) they sit at a table as they are waited on and served by the volunteers (which is one of the jobs our students will be performing).” And “guests are allowed options and choices for drinks and desserts, which are brought to them by the volunteer servers with a smile.” To Fellows, “this simple act of allowing options and being served is something that affirms the human dignity of all guests, and is not something which many of them are accustomed to in their daily lives.” On a more personalized level, though, Fellows expands upon his experience at St. Francis over the years, and what strikes him as he reflects on his time there: “Having been to the St Francis Inn, one of the things that struck me the most was a simple sign posted by the back door.  St Francis Inn will sometimes collect mail for guests if they have no fixed address and hold it in a back room.” He adds, “The back door has a peep hole, and when someone knocks at the back door, you very clearly see the sign they have posted there for when you look out.  It reads, ‘Smile.  Jesus is at the door’.” “This affirmation,” he said, “of seeing Christ in all people, and affirming their dignity, regardless of circumstances, is something that I hope all our participants take away from the weekend.” Being “formed in the spirit of the Gospel and inspired by the life and compassion of Francis and Clare of Assisi”, the individuals of St. Francis Inn, as well as those of our own Campus Ministry, “try to meet the immediate daily needs of the people we serve with food, clothing and hospitality,” according to their mission statement, and “[they] empower persons to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty and address structural injustices.” And, in a more personalized and empirical sense, they “seek to build relationships with those that we serve by respecting their human dignity and by helping them to restore hope in their lives, and by living simply among them.”

Contestants who register to participate on our website may be required to produce a printed copy of proof of registration before being allowed to participate in the contest. Due to the nature of our programs that are heard on-line over the internet, contests may not be heard at all on 95.7 WZID. Contests heard on the radio station’s internet audio stream may be slightly delayed from the time the contests are heard on the broadcast station, and will be running behind the broadcast signal. Thus, all contests heard on the internet are delayed. This delay can last for as much as 30 seconds or more. This means that when 95.7 WZID contests are played that require a specific caller to telephone the radio station (such as “Caller number 9 when you hear the sound effect”), listeners to the on-line audio stream may be at a disadvantage in participating over those listeners who hear the contests on-air. A copy of these rules is available during business hours at the 95.7 WZID studios, 500 North Commercial Street, 5th Floor, Manchester, NH 03101.
