    Despite not walking through graduation ceremonies (sorry Mom), I am very proud of that framed piece of paper. I was made even prouder last week when the school picked up its first-ever basketball victory as a Division I member. The Lady Norse defeated Youngstown State on a last second shot, 66-64.
