Morrissey residents relocate to Pangborn Hall for renovations

first_imgThe men of Morrissey Manor have found a temporary home in Pangborn Hall while the Manor is being fully renovated for the first time in two decades. This overhaul of the South Quad dorm, constructed in 1925, follows renovations of Walsh Hall and Badin Hall in the previous two years. Residents of Walsh and Badin were also temporarily located to Pangborn during their renovations.Morrissey Manor’s Little Flower Chapel was renovated in 2015, but the building has not seen extensive improvements since 1998.“Morrissey will receive an elevator and fitness room for the first time in its history,” Morrissey Rector Zack Imfeld said in an email. “Every part of the building — except the Chapel — will be improved, balancing Morrissey’s classic 1925 feel with modern construction.”Residents of Morrissey, a hall long infamous for its small rooms, are looking forward to the new changes, Smith said.“Bigger rooms is the one thing that stands out, especially for a Morrissey guy,” sophomore Ryan Smith said. “It was pretty tight last year being in a double with such limited space. I’m looking forward to next year and having bigger rooms.”For the Manorites, the move across South Quad is a change of scenery but not of culture, as signified by their Little Flower Chapel, Smith said.“Seeing the chapel untouched while everything else is under construction was symbolic of how that culture and that vibe — no matter what you do to the physical appearance of Morrissey — you won’t touch that culture and that’s something that’s going to carry with us through Pangborn and to when we return to the Manor next year,” Smith said.Imfeld said the dorm has been preparing for the move since it was first announced during the 2015-16 academic year.“I don’t think the move will impact us drastically — we’ve been planning as a hall community for a few years, so all of our traditions and processes were created and enhanced to make our transition as smooth as possible,” Imfeld said. “The beauty of our move is that while the building may be different, the community is the same and that’s the beauty of the residential system here at Notre Dame.”Senior Brady McLaughlin, Morrissey’s hall president, said the Manor does not plan to commemorate their temporary relocation in any way.“Our plan this year is to keep on doing what we want to be known for, keep on doing what we have been known for,” McLaughlin said. “Honestly, as a senior, I would be kind of pissed off if we were trying to do something different this year. I stayed in Morrissey because I love Morrissey.”Smith said ensuring that first years who have only ever lived in Pangborn carry on the Morrissey legacy when they return to the Manor is a top priority for upperclassman.“We want [first years] to carry on the same traditions, and even though we’re being renovated that doesn’t mean that we’re wiping away the old Morrissey,” Smith said. “It still lives on pretty strong in our hearts and that’s something that we want to carry into the new building next year.”Smith said the changes may temporarily move Morrissey out of the home they love, but residents are optimistic about the new challenge and look forward to their return to the Manor next year.“It’s exciting because I think we do have a good community, and I don’t just say that as a Morrissey guy. I really do think it’s a great group of guys with great leadership at the top,” he said. “I think if we can carry that into a brand new building with brand new facilities, it’s going to be really great not just for us but for the rest of campus because we do some really cool stuff throughout the year.”Tags: Construction on Campus, Morrissey Manor, Pangborn Hall, renovationslast_img read more

Matt Kemp homers twice as Dodgers rout Brewers to take series in Milwaukee

first_imgSunday’s win featured Kemp’s first multi-home run game as a Dodger since July 29, 2014 and was part of a 6-for-13 series in Milwaukee for him.The five-run second inning included an RBI double by Manny Machado, his first extra-base hit and first RBI as a Dodger. Machado was 5 for 13 with two walks in his first series with his new team and hit a 103.8 mph bullet back at Brewers reliever Jacob Barnes during the Dodgers’ five-run fifth inning. Barnes caught the liner, tucking his chin just out of the way.“I think he’s put together some good at-bats,” Roberts said. “He also lined a ball that nearly took the pitcher’s head off. He’s doing everything we’ve expected – using the whole field, getting on base, staying in the strike zone.”Wood gave up two runs in the first inning when five of the first six Brewers batters reached base (three singles and two walks). But he allowed just two more hits and one walk in his six innings.“Today wasn’t his sharpest day,” Roberts said. “But he willed himself to get through six innings.”Caleb Ferguson followed with three scoreless innings to earn his second save of the season. The first came in a game the Dodgers won 17-1. Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day “It didn’t feel like much,” Barnes said.Perez and catcher Erik Kratz were actually the Brewers’ most effective pitchers Sunday afternoon, combining on three scoreless innings in a game the Dodgers otherwise dominated. Matt Kemp hit two home runs and Chris Taylor drove in three runs as the Dodgers routed the Milwaukee Brewers 11-2.“It proved to be more difficult than I expected it to be,” Dodgers starter Alex Wood said of striking out on a 79-mph fastball from Perez in the seventh inning.The Dodgers had put the game away by then thanks to a pair of five-run innings against Brewers starter Brent Suter and reliever Taylor Williams. Twelve of the Dodgers’ 15 hits – including Kemp’s two home runs – came off Suter who left after three innings with tightness in his left forearm.The Dodgers had their own dark cloud hovering over Sunday’s game.

But he was pulled in the third inning with tightness in the same groin muscle that kept him out for the previous 10 days.“It definitely didn’t get worse but it didn’t feel as good as I’d hoped,” Turner said. “Hitting a ball down the line (for his double), not even thinking about running hard, I still felt it.”Despite not playing him in the final series before the four-day All-Star break, the Dodgers haven’t placed Turner on the DL with the injury. Roberts acknowledged after Sunday’s game, that move is “a possibility” now.“We’ve tried to take the approach with the All-Star break and try to stay away from him in the day to day,” Roberts said. “But for him to get in there after this amount of time and through two innings still feel it, we’re at a point where we’ve probably got to be more aggressive.”An All-Star last year, Turner has been limited to 50 games – and a .259 batting average – by a fractured wrist in March and now the adductor muscle injury.“Just the way the year has been it’s been frustrating so this is just another thing that sucks,” Turner said. “But we played a really good baseball game and won the series, that’s the most important thing.”Related Articles Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury last_img read more
