Portrait photos of Lorah - Chelsea Hanson

Lorah Norman, a senior, Family Science major, crochets "cozies" and sells them to raise money for the National Alliance to End Homelessness.

Norman sells each "cozy" for $5 and donates 100 percent of the proceeds to www.endhomelessness.org.

She has also added crocheted scarfs to her website, crochetawayhomelessness.weebly.com. She plans to donate all of the proceeds from those sales as well.

Norman has attracted a majority of her customers at IFC tailgates, where she shows off her "cozies." Her Maryland and USA colors are the most popular, however, customers can request colors of their choice.

It takes about 45 minutes for Norman to crochet a "cozy." She offers two styles, one for a bottle and one for a can.

Linnea Gonzales - Maryland Field Hockey

Linnea Gonzales, a freshman forward for the Maryland Field Hockey team from Bel Air, Md. 


She has great forehand and backhand (as shown here) shots 
that she is able to get off quickly.

Linnea has some of the quickest hands on the team, which she uses to 
dodge defenders in the offensive half of the field.

 Linnea showed off some of her stick-tricks. This is one of the most basic - 
simply balancing the ball on the face of the stick.

Linnea hopes the team's success continues as they move closer to post-season play.
