Holy Rollers Bocce Team

The Holy Roller team has announced its retirement from the bocce league. The team retires as Fall and Spring 2009 Season Champions. The trophies adorn the lovely display outside the graduate student office. 







Though the Holy Rollers are stepping aside, the research division still remains strong in the NRH bocce league. The ROLL-A-TINIS were the Fall 2007 and Fall 2008 Champions and have now reclaimed glory for Fall 2010.

Skelly Our Mascot

Skelly is the miniature skeleton that resides in the display window outside the CABRR graduate student office. Skelly is showing his team spirit with posh outfits designed by the students.

Sadly the picture of Skelly for Valentine's Day has been misplaced. Future plans involve a Pirate outfit. Many thanks to Theresa for updating Skelly's outfit on her visit.
