The University of Saint Francis

Bill Scott

This past Saturday, the University of Saint Francis football team won the NAIA National Championship for the second straight year. The undefeated USF Cougars came into the game at Municipal Stadium in Daytona Beach riding a 22 game winning streak. 

After winning a national championship in December of 2016, the University of Saint Francis extended Head Coach Kevin Donley’s contract through 2021. Donley’s Cougars haven’t lost a game since.

“Winning one is quite an accomplishment. To do it back to back really kind of puts the university in an elite category.”

Plays and musicals are put on throughout the year in northeast Indiana and in November, the University of Saint Francis put on '"Sister Act." The lead role, originally played by Whoopi Goldberg in the 1992 film, was brought to life by Fatima Washington. Fatima is a friend of the station. She’s been on WBOI’s Meet the Music and she joined us in the studio in early December to talk about her experience donning the habit.
