This year was the first year I was able to play competitive volleyball. Since I was in middle school or so, I had been learning how to play volleyball with my family. Then in high school, I did a few volleyball events at the high school gym. Then in college, I did intramurals, but decided I wanted to try doing volleyball competitively for once. We had a really fun season! more “More Than Just Volleyball”
In honor of the end of March Madness, Concordia hosted an event to watch the NCAA final game. They had a free party in the Albrecht lounge to get people together to watch the Gonzaga Bulldogs face off against the North Carolina Tar Heels on Monday. None of those teams are special to Wisconsin, but I am sure there are some students who liked those teams, and it was just fun to get together and watch it. The best part of the event was the fact that Concordia provided a nacho bar (where you could eat as much as you wanted) and free sodas. In addition, the Albrecht lounge has a lot of games that you can play while watching the game, including darts, arcade games, and a ping pong table. more “NCAA Finals”
Intramural basketball has finally arrived, and for the past couple weeks, our team has been in full swing. We have had three games so far, and it’s only going to get more intense. My team consists of me, my roommates Jonathan and Evan, and friend Big Joe, Isaiah, Henry, Noah, and Austin. Great group of guys, many of them in our bible study believe it or not. The first game was by far the best. more “Run ‘Em to Death”
Student Athletes have a lot on their plates as to what they need to be doing. Prioritizing is going to help out a ton when it comes to making sure you’re up on both your academics and athletics.
My roommate, Evan Parkhurst, is a exercise physiology major. To be honest, what he does is way beyond me! But, with that being said, I was able to be immersed in a little bit of his world last Friday as well as this Monday. For his senior seminar, he is doing a research project with several others do research on something to do with nutrients in the blood while exercising (like I said, I have no idea what he’s doing!). But, it was really cool to see how they test athletes from the D-III level all the way up to the pros. more “Bike Tests”
One of the great excitements of campus life is the sporting events. Especially when it gets to be the NACC playoffs for men’s and women’s basketball. Starting Wednesday February 22nd, they won in the first round against Dominican with a final score of 97-64. Despite being merely a Wednesday night, the stands were packed, Freddy was pumping up the crowd, the cheerleaders were doing a great job in getting the crowd going, and to top it off, the whole pep band was there as well to make it as high energy as possible. With a pretty easy win, they went on to the semi-finals versus Aurora University at their campus in Illinois. There they came out with a close victory of 90-86, but it still got them to the championship round of the NACC tournament. more “Men’s Basketball NACC Finals”
