Rodeo Rescuer: Childhood love leads to a never-dull career

A childhood love of rodeo has evolved into a fast-paced profession in sports medicine for Nacogdoches resident Doug Olle, who travels across the U.S. as part of the Justin Boots Sports Medicine Team.

Olle's work in rodeos, including here at the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo, has been featured in the pages of The Daily Sentinel and other newspapers in years past, but Olle was most recently featured in The York Daily Record in York, Pa.

Originally from Alief, coming to Nacogdoches to earn degrees in health and physical education at Stephen F. Austin State University, Olle has called Nacogdoches home since about 1991. He joined the Justin team the following year, and rodeo has been an important part of his life since. read more

 

SFA to present sports comedy,
'The Complete World of Sports (abridged)'

"It'll be a marathon of madness and mayhem as the world's greatest sporting events are shrunk down to theatrical size" is one of the promotional taglines for "The Complete World of Sports (abridged)," which will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 28, in W.M. Turner Auditorium. The show is part of the Stephen F. Austin State University College of Fine Arts' University Series.

The newest comedy by The Reduced Shakespeare Company, described by The Boston Globe as "A mad dash through every sport ever played," has received rave reviews. The New York Times called it "Intellectual vaudeville . . . as loony as it is beautiful," and The Lowell Sun (in Lowell, Mass.), described it as "A triumph of speed, endurance, comic timing, (and) high-scoring word-play . . . ." read more

 

SFA Repertory Dance Company to perform

The Stephen F. Austin State University Repertory Dance Company will perform in concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 4, and Saturday, Feb. 5, at 3 and 7:30 p.m. in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus. The concert features works by dance program faculty and guest artists. Dance majors Kathleen Higgins and Marka Wood also have been invited to have their senior choreographic projects produced. Professor Stan Bobo choreographed "Bailero," a lyrical solo that premiered in 1994 and has been restaged for second-year company member Erika Marschke. read more
