Good news Friday, Taylor Swift, men’s soccer, Starr Andrews

This week, we celebrate Taylor Swift’s chart-topping domination, two women making NCAA history and Starr Andrews’ figure skating medal

Midnights mayhem 

Taylor Swift has made history, becoming the first artist to claim every slot on Billboard’s Hot 100 list with her new album Midnights. Drake held the previous record with nine singles in the top 10, and before him, the Beatles held eight in 1964.

On Twitter, Taylor shared: "10 out of 10 of the Hot 100??? On my 10th album??? I AM IN SHAMBLES."

NCAA face off

Kim Wyant of New York University and Julianne Sitch of the University of Chicago made history by becoming the first women coaches to face off in NCAA men’s soccer in a landmark match. 

Ben Trask, a sophomore midfielder for the University of Chicago said: “Her experience and credentials were never in doubt. I knew if I came here, I would be playing for a great coach. If I had it to do again, I would come here again.”

First place Starr

At just 21 years old, Starr Andrews made history by becoming the first Black US figure skater to earn the ISU Grand Prix medal.

“I think it’s a huge deal, to be a woman of colour in figure skating,” Starr said. “I’m so proud I could represent. (It makes) bringing home a medal even more special.”

Derrick Delmore, Starr’s trainer said: “It’s really, really important, especially with everything that’s going on in the world right now. She stepped up to the challenge. The fact she made so much of a statement this week does wonders for the community and it will continue to solidify her as a role model.”
