The Michigan Tech football team came up empty at Northwood University 17-3 in Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference action Saturday afternoon. The Huskies had to try and play catchup most of the day after a Timberwolves touchdown with just under 10 minutes to go in the first quarter put them on top. Unfortunately, it was an advantage that Northwood wouldn't relinquish.
"Right now we are struggling a little bit to find that groove offensively, where we are staying on the field to convert third downs and move the chains," Michigan Tech Defensive Coordinator and Interim Head Coach for this weekend Steve Olson said. "We have a good offensive football team and they'll get it figured out and keep working hard. We made some mistakes defensively as well and we'll go back and look at the film and clean those up. We'll go to work on the things we need to fix on all sides of the ball and figure it out. We have great kids and they work hard. We have three games left in the UP and I'm confident that we will play very hard and play very well in those last three games. Next week will be an exciting game against Ashland and it will be at home. They are a very good football team and we are going to take our best shot to get a win."
The Huskies will return to Houghton and the friendly confines of Sherman Field next week when they host Ashland University. The kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. To read the full story and find out more about Husky sports visit michigantechhuskies.com.
Student Spends a Summer in Germany
Ethan Klein, a third year mechanical engineering student with a minor in German at Michigan Tech has always had a fascination for Germany and German culture.
So you can imagine how excited he was to have been chosen to participate in a Cultural Vistas Fellowship program in Germany.
Cultural Vistas Fellowship awards a select group of students the opportunity to travel abroad, with the goal of increasing understanding of innovation and entrepreneurship in a global market. The two-month program destinations include Germany, India and Argentina. The students undergo an intensive two-day training program in New York prior to departure, preparing them to live and work in their selected countries; they then share their experiences in New York once again, when they return.
Klein, whose fascination with German history is fueled by his family ancestry, was thrilled to have the opportunity to not only go to Germany, but to secure an internship where he and his team members worked on a testing apparatus for linear led lighting systems.
When Klein was younger, his family hosted a German exchange student, Matthias Straubinger. Klein’s family kept in contact with Matthias over the years. Klein was very pleased to be able to spend time with Matthias while in Germany. The two toured some of the local sights, including a historic park in the Grunewald Forest and a castle built in 1542 by Prince-Elector Joachim II.
