A Day in the Life: A Pier Cashier

"Who's next?" she calls as you step up to the plate. "I'll have the turkey sandwich with BBQ Baked Lays, two strawberry yogurts, a veggie tray, a large Powerade and an oatmeal cup," you say as she punches the color-coded buttons, the balance rises, the Spidercard is swiped (twice) with a "How you doin' today?" punctuated by the one-handed wave of a paper bag, and before you can answer, she's off... "Did she get all that?" you wonder as you watch her glide through the aluminum galley.

Richmond beats Maine 44-17, gets No. 1 ranking

By Stephen Utz Collegian Reporter Richmond wide receiver Jordan Mitchell knew exactly how to beat Maine's defenders when they started playing 12 yards off him: one quick move to the sideline. That's all it took for him to get open for an 87-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Eric Ward, a play that tied for the second-longest scoring play in school history and was part of a 44-17 victory against the University of Maine Saturday at home. "It was a play we saw all week in practice," Mitchell, a junior, said of Maine's defensive coverage on the play. Ward completed 16 of 25 passes for three touchdowns and a career-high 273 yards while Mitchell earned a career high in reception yards and scored two touchdowns.
