When the WKU Hilltoppers take the field this Saturday, they'll do so in a place that has become the epicenter of college football greatness. The Alabama Crimson Tide are the defending national champions and boast the number one ranking in both major polls.
In WKU's season opening win last Saturday against Austin Peay, senior wide receiver Marcus Vasquez didn’t have a particularly amazing stat line: one catch for 25 yards. But the fact Vasquez was on the field at all is a tribute to the power of the human body, spirit—and the miracle of modern medicine.
Olympic gold medalist Claire Donahue is spending Tuesday on the campus of her alma mater, WKU. The former Hilltopper swimmer brought home a gold medal from the London games as part of the women’s 4 x 100-meter medley relay team.
