Have a Taste of What's Cooking at Michigan Tech Winter Carnival

Students at Michigan Tech on a roof-high snow statue scaffold smile on campus as they prep for Michigan Tech Winter Carnival.

“Tasty Foods for Wintry Moods” are on the menu at the 101st Winter Carnival, Wednesday through Saturday (Feb. 8-11). The region’s largest seasonal festival kicks into high gear Wednesday, as students construct one-night statues and complete monthlong builds during the legendary All-Nighter. Students have until 9 a.m. Thursday morning to complete statues; judging follows at 9:30 a.m., with results announced late Thursday afternoon.

“With this year’s food theme, we took on a new adventure of accepting external vendors,” said Blue Key President Joe Dlugos (environmental engineering). The preliminary list of participating eateries includes The Forge, Chicago Beefs and Jim’s Pizza. “We will still have the favorites everyone loves, including pasties, chili, the Huskies Pep Band’s fried foods and Guardians of the North’s (AFROTC) pancake breakfast,” Dlugos said.

A Year of Kindness at Michigan Tech

“Kindness has a beautiful way of reaching down into a weary heart and making it shine like the rising sun.” — Unknown

With National Random Acts of Kindness Day quickly approaching on Feb. 17, it is important to step back and reflect on ourselves, our campus and our world.

Student Affairs is pleased to introduce a new blog, Michigan Tech: The Kindest University, to highlight the incredible acts of kindness occurring all across our campus. The blog is focused on a single but powerful idea: kindness.

In November 2022, on World Kindness Day, the Student Affairs leadership team endorsed the idea of continuing to promote kindness throughout 2023. We know that kindness is already occurring. But we are sometimes hesitant to acknowledge our kindness because it may be perceived as bragging or rewarding people for doing something that we should be doing anyway.

It’s always a good time to be kind to ourselves and to others. We live in a precarious world surrounded by sadness, pain, frustration, disappointment, anger, fear and despair. But we are also surrounded by joy, hope, resilience, love, faith and compassion. We just need to choose which force, feeling or emotion will get our energy and attention. Our blog is intended to highlight the incredible members of the Michigan Tech community who are choosing kindness.

A simple act of kindness can make a difference to a person. Acts of kindness do not have to be grand. Small acts of kindness can have a big impact and can often change a person’s mood for a moment, a day or much longer. Kindness can also have a positive impact on one’s self-esteem and overall well-being.

This new blog will celebrate kindness. Individuals will be invited to share their experiences, perspectives, research, resources and suggestions related to kindness. Ultimately, we hope the stories will inspire more conversations and acts of kindness at Tech, so that we can be a healthier and more impactful institution in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Help us highlight how Michigan Tech is the kindest university! Whether you experience kindness firsthand or witness it happening to a fellow Husky, we want to encourage you to share your story and thoughts on our blog.

Visit the new Kindness at Tech website to learn more about this powerful concept and what we can do to model and celebrate kindness.

Women's Basketball Remains Perfect at Home

Michigan Tech women's basketball defeated Wayne State and Saginaw Valley at SDC Gymnasium over the weekend, continuing their 10-0 home record.

The games were Ellie Mackay's 130th and 131st appearing in a Husky jersey, tying and then breaking MTU's record for women's basketball career games played.

Sara Dax poured in 22 points and Isabella Lenz chipped in late to help the Huskies overcome a nine-point halftime deficit and beat the Warriors 80-70 on Thursday (Feb. 2). 

"It was a mindset change at halftime for us," said head coach Sam Clayton. "We turned around pretty much everything, from rebounding to taking high-percentage shots, to getting looks at the rim. We have to find a better way to get out of that early funk that we've had several games this year. Still, it was great to see how we responded and came back in the second half, when we played our brand of basketball."

The Huskies soundly defeated the Cardinals on Saturday (Feb. 4) in GLIAC basketball. Lenz scored a team-high 22 points and Dax put up 16 points in the win. The Huskies shot 52.3% overall and held SVSU to just five points in the first quarter.

"I thought our team was awesome today," said Clayton. "From start to finish, we came out and executed defensively against two very difficult players to guard in (Tori) DePerry and (Kaitlyn) Zarycki. To be able to hold this team to 49 is quite a challenge, so I was proud of our ability to force 21 turnovers and press them to make mistakes."

Men's Basketball Wins at Home vs. Warriors, Cardinals

Michigan Tech men's basketball has won three straight games, adding victories against Wayne State and Saginaw Valley over the weekend. 

The wins put MTU within a half-game of the final GLIAC tournament playoff position in the conference standings.

The Huskies posted a comprehensive 78-58 win over the Warriors on Thursday (Feb. 2). Dan Gherezgher led the way with 20 points, and three other players made it to double-figures: Marcus Tomashek (18), Pete Calcaterra (11) and Adam Hobson (10). 

"When we have a good start, we usually stay aggressive and finish the game strong," Gherezgher said. "I think we showed we've matured from where we were earlier in the season by not letting this one slip. The coaches really pulled us together and helped us keep our focus. We realized we didn't need to force anything. Just keep making the right reads and keep playing hard."

The Huskies seized their third straight victory over the Cardinals 75-67 on Saturday (Feb. 4). Nate Abel came off the bench and scored a team-high 15 points in the win. Calcaterra added an efficient 14 points, going 5-of-7 shooting, and Hobson provided 13 points and six assists. 

"It turned into a real fight towards the end, and our guys competed for a full 40 minutes," said head coach Josh Buettner. "It was great playing in front of a full house and there was a lot of energy in the building. We made some mistakes, but different guys stepped up at the right moments and made plays, which was awesome."

Hockey Adds Another Friday Shutout, Sweeps Beavers

No. 12 Michigan Tech hockey swept Bemidji State on the Beavers' home ice over the weekend, with goalie Blake Pietila adding a fourth straight Friday shutout for the Huskies.

Tech defeated Bemidji State 2-0 on Friday (Feb. 3) at the Sanford Center, pushing Pietila's single-season school record to eight shutouts and his career record to 18.

"It was the game we expected it to be," Tech coach Joe Shawhan said. "They pressure and make you make plays. Blake did what Blake does and held us in there early, which allowed us to get our legs under us. We got a nice play out of Worksy (Jack Works) to get the lead and got a nice play with their goalie out.

"The guys were resilient again. I think we did leave some performance on the table and can improve on that tomorrow night, but I give our guys a ton of credit to come out with the points."

The Huskies completed the CCHA series sweep of the Beavers with a 3-2 victory Saturday (Feb. 4). MTU had a 3-0 lead and held on late to win their fourth straight and 20th game this season, improving to 20-7-4 overall and 13-5-4 in the CCHA.

"To come in here and win two games is huge. They're a good team, and they play well on their home ice," Shawhan said. "It was a great game, and I thought we played and competed well. Blake played tremendous for us like he always does, and that's a huge win for us for a lot of reasons."

Women's Tennis Grounds Flyers

Michigan Tech women's tennis picked up four wins in singles to defeat Lewis University 4-3 in nonconference play Saturday (Feb. 4) at Challenge Fitness. 

Dominika Bobik came out victorious in No. 1 singles, winning 6-1, 3-6, 6-2. Neva Manas moved up one position in the lineup to No. 3 and won 6-3, 6-3. Adding a set win in doubles, Manas holds a combined 4-0 match record this spring. 

Lauren Opalewski and Marina Fernandez also grabbed straight-set wins at No. 5 and No. 6 singles, respectively.

"I thought we showed extreme resiliency today," said head coach Kristin D'Agostini-Yep. "There were a lot of tight matches and it came down to the very end. I was happy with the way we played."

Men's Tennis Beaten by Lewis

Michigan Tech men's tennis won a pair of singles matches, but succumbed to Lewis University 4-2 at Challenge Fitness on Saturday (Feb. 4) in nonconference play.

The Huskies lost the team doubles point, despite a 7-5 tiebreak win at No. 1 by the duo of Eli Pinnoo and Leon Sell. 

In singles, Adam Fenjiro prevailed in three sets at No. 3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5. Pinnoo also won in singles, 7-5, 6-4. Leon Sell played another competitive match at No. 1 but lost 6-3, 4-6, 6-2.

The Huskies lost the remaining two singles matches in straight sets with Ambarish Rao's match remaining unfinished at No. 6.

"Our team came out fighting today, all the way until the end," said head coach Kristin D'Agostini-Yep. "It didn't go our way, but I felt we competed well and we are making positive steps."

Nordic Skiers Earn Combined Team Win at GANC CCSA Invite

The Michigan Tech Nordic Ski team earned its third combined team win of the season, highlighted by Anabel Needham's classic mass start win at the GANC CCSA Invite in Duluth, Minnesota, on Saturday and Sunday (Feb. 4-5).

"It was awesome for the team to get another combined win this weekend," head coach Tom Monahan Smith said. "We really had to earn it this week and we are super proud of our student-athletes and their efforts. The CCSA is only getting stronger, which is a really fun aspect for our region, and these weekends are only getting more competitive."

Needham finished over 16 seconds ahead of the runner-up (1:10.02.8) in the 20km classic mass start, and the Huskies showcased two other top 10 performances: Olivia Laven (1:11:54.1) and Cat Stow (1:12:16.4), who finished sixth and eighth, respectively.

Stow also highlighted the first race of the women's 5km freestyle interval start, taking fourth overall. Laven was seven seconds behind Stow to take sixth overall in a time of 15:27.5. Henriette Semb was the third Husky through the finish line in 11th place.

The Husky men showcased impressive racing too, claiming the top three spots in the 10km freestyle interval start. Skylar Patten won the race in 26:04.8, 15 seconds ahead of teammate Adam Witkowski. Colin Freed rounded out the podium in third place. Tryg Solberg took seventh overall (27:10.05) and Jasper Johnston finished 11th.

Patten was also the runner-up in the 20km classic mass start (1:00:01.3), with five other Huskies placing in the top 10: Henry Snider (fifth), Witkowski (sixth), Freed (seventh), Tryg Solberg (eighth) and Wes Campbell (10th).

In Print

Valoree Gagnon (CFRES/GLRC) and Evelyn Ravindran of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Natural Resources Department are co-authors of a research article published in Ecology & Society as part of a special feature on Collaborative Management, Environmental Caretaking, and Sustainable Livelihoods.

The article is titled "Restoring human and more-than-human relations in toxic riskscapes: “in perpetuity” within Lake Superior's Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, Sand Point."

This paper shares the story from Keweenaw Bay’s Sand Point restoration project (2002 to present) to elucidate distinctly different approaches and challenges to restoring ecological relationships, including those between human and more-than-human beings. The restoration of 35 acres of barren shoreline into a thriving landscape concurrently created space for reclaiming Ojibwa stewardship obligations to land, water and life.
