    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.

The Big Ten – Heightened Team Awareness

I have covered four out of The Big Ten thus far.  They have included Loyalty, Class, Turning Negatives Into Positives, and Synergism. Today’s phrase is extremely important to any successful team and it is…


– The baseball program has defined this phrase in a simple way, “Putting the team before yourself.”  This is pretty basic but at the same time very hard to do, especially in the sport of baseball.  For example, No one likes to struggle hitting, but it happens.  Theirs a reason that baseball is often called a game of failure.  Look at the professional players, they fail 7/10 times when hitting.  So let’s say I am having a brutal day at the plate, can’t do anything to help the team but we end up winning despite my pitiful performance.  Yes, it’s okay to be down on yourself but once again it’s not all about you, it’s about the team.  You can look at this vice versa. Say I’m having an awesome day at the plate 4/4, 3 runs batted in(RBI), 2 doubles, 3 stolen bases, etc. Just an awesome day! But we lose.  It’s okay to be happy and pumped that you did well, but take a step back and look at the bigger picture, we lost.

As part of the baseball program we are called to be selfless ball players. It’s not the easiest task but this is what we strive for day in and day out. We need to always be looking out for the team. Who cares if I had a great day and we lost. Personally it’s great, keep up the good work but know that that’s not enough, we want to win and that reflects the team not one person. Once again, looking at it vice versa, who cares if I have a bad day and the team wins. I need to be excited and pumped for our team’s success and know that I have things to work on so that I can contribute tot he team’s success. We can not have people bringing the team down with poor attitudes…It’s all about the team.

As you can imagine Heightened Team Awareness is a major part to our program’s success and that is exactly why it is part of The Big Ten.
