The field trip wasn't only about having fun, said Prue. “The trip addressed standards of music, it's relationship with other mediums, and proper etiquette.”
“Many of the 57 students haven't traveled outside the Northeast Kingdom, much less flown on an airplane,” Prue observed. “That in itself was quite an experience.”

CONCORD–Chris DeLaBruere had 21 points, and two other Crusaders were in double-digits as UCA defeated Concord (1-6) on Tuesday evening to move to a Division IV best 8-1.
"We didn't shoot as well as we wanted to but Marquel Taylor-Webster had another strong game inside with 13 pts and 18 boards, while Chris added 8 boards to go along with his 21," said coach Tony DeLaBruere. "Defensively we still have much work to do, but some adjustments offensively at half time really seemed to work for us and allowed us to take advantage of our inside game which seems to be clicking right now."
