UB Athletics received a $1.5 million bequest, its largest ever, from Dr. Burt H. Rubin (BA ’74), who played hockey for the Bulls. Thanks a million-plus, Doc!
Freshman 197-pounder Nate Rose became the first Bull ever to qualify for the World Wrestling Championships. Representing Trinidad and Tobago, the 19-year-old went 1-1—not a bad record against some of the best grapplers on the planet.
The Buffalo Beauts, of the newly formed National Women’s Hockey League, signed UB architecture graduate student Kimberly Sass, who played goalie at Colgate from 2008 to 2012. Sass was stalwart between the pipes for the Raiders, recording significant playing time all four years.
Sophomore goalie Laura Dougall recorded shutouts in six of the women’s soccer team’s first 12 matches this fall, logging a 0.80 save percentage. Is she majoring in civil engineering? Because it sounds like she set up a wall back there!
