    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Gnomar Gardenparra

The Saints baseball team is opening up it’s 2013 season today at 4:30 in the Metrodome against Macalaster. The Saints are hoping to come out strong in their season opener with help from their new mascot “Gnomar Gardenparra” named after the MLB All-Star Nomar Garciaparra.

Every year the Saints have had a somewhat random mascot that the “keeper” – the chosen honoree – brings to every game and finds a certain location for the mascot to sit and watch the game. Some spots last year for the Saints mascot, Ozzie Saint, was the outfield bleachers in the Metrodome, a palm tree in Florida, and even in the crows nest at Wade Stadium. The mascot before Ozzie was Rafael Saint. May they both rest in peace as they were retired.

Mascots are always dressed up in a Saints uniform with the #33 in memory of Head Coach John Baggs who passed away in 2009. The mascot always has the saying, “Hoka “Hey” on it, which is our team’s motto. Crazy Horse said it as he went into battle and it means, “Today is a good day to die”. To us it means that we have worked our hardest and given everything we had and we know it’s a great day to die knowing we left it all on the field.

If you make it out to a Saints baseball game this year be sure to try and look for Gnonmar Gardenparra, he’ll be there.
