Highlander Festival And Braveheart 5k – Fall 2014
Radford’s 19th annual Highlanders Festival was celebrated on Oct. 4 at the beautiful Bisset Park.
The festival kicked off with the BraveHeart 5K and Fun Run, which even encouraged runners to wear kilts!
Radford Rowdies – Spring 2015
The Radford Rowdies were revitalized during the fall 2014 semester at Radford University as a student-run hype squad in support of Radford’s athletics teams.
Radford Pitches – Fall 2015
We all have to put our heart into something, and that is especially true for the Radford Pitches, the university’s a cappella club. They put their hearts into their music and each other, and it shows.
Highlander Hysteria – Fall 2016
Radford University Athletics has used the event Highlander Hysteria for the past three years as midnight madness to kick off the men and women’s basketball seasons. Since Hysteria took place around Halloween this year, they encouraged Radford students and children to come to the event dressed in their costumes.
Women’s Softball – Fall 2016
As a Radford student, alum, or faculty member, we know that we have incredible D1 athletics teams, including our soccer and basketball teams. But not everyone knows a lot about our softball team, which is currently ranked fourth in the Big South’s yearly standings.
Ivy Preko Profile – Spring 2017
“Make sure your stitching’s are correct!” Her instructor said as he was walking around the room to check on everyone’s work. She was smiling from ear to ear, as she was almost done designing a gray cotton ribbed knit sweater that resembled something you’d see in stores.
Women’s Basketball – Spring 2017
While growing up, most kids who played sports competitively dreamed of playing on a Collegiate and even professional level team. A majority, if not all of the women’s basketball team have been shooting hoops for at least 10 years.
“When I started out playing basketball, college basketball was the furthest thing from my mind. It wasn’t ’till about eighth grade when I made the decision to stop all other sports and really work at college basketball became a priority,” said second year graduate student Rachael Ross.
Club Swim – Spring 2017
Whenever one thinks of Radford University sports, they usually look at our D1 sports such as basketball, baseball, and soccer. However, the intramural and club athletics teams are almost equivalent to these skill sets of our university’s sports, such as Radford Club Swim.
“Being part of a swim team is different from may sports because it is coed which is one of the best parts about it. You’re able to make a bunch of firends with a wide variety of majors but everyone has the same interest in swimming,” said junior and Social Media Chair Christine Galley.
