Track and Field UMAC Conference Championships: My Last Meet

Saturday, May 7th, 2016

It’s been a great run for the CSS track team here but, unfortunately, we couldn’t score enough points to take home the conference trophy. This is the first time in about 10 years that CSS has not won the UMAC conference. It’s sad but I’m still proud of how everyone competed and I’m proud of my last season of track and field…ever.

BWC Closed Today

Friday, March 25th, 2016

I went to the BWC earlier to get my workout in but as I pulled the doors, I noticed that they were locked. Apparently the facility is closed the whole weekend for Easter break. I wasn’t the only one who was surprised by the closing as three other students showed up at the time I did. I suppose the BWC is mindful of the students that work there, giving them time off to enjoy Easter. 

Injury = Absence

Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

I injured my back earlier this week and have had great difficulty getting around or even sitting for a prolonged amount of time. This has led me to be absent from some of my classes and work. These days are unfortunate but it’s temporary. I just have to focus on communicating with my professors and stay on top of my school work while trying to recover. Most of the athletic training staff are helpful in this situation.

Track Conference Meet day 1

Friday, February 26th, 2016

Today was the first of two days of the UMAC conference track and field meet. The conference championship is held at UWS so it’s not far for students to come cheer us on. I competed in the distance medley relay and placed third. We (the saints) competed well overall on both the men’s and women’s teams. Hopefully we can out perform UWS tomorrow and bring home the hardware.

Student-Athlete Problems

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

I’m not sure about other athletes in their respective sports, but I find myself getting drained from my track workouts. It becomes difficult to focus on school work when my body is dead. In cases like this, caffeine is my best friend. I try to balance school work and working out to where I’m effective in both. One can’t overpower the other because if one does, I find myself lacking in the other. It’s a constant battle.
