A window inside life at Augustana College

A quick Tuesday night post

Augustana women's basketball defeated Clarke 80-60

Augustana women’s basketball defeated Clarke 80-60 on Tuesday, November 26 in Carver Center.

Hello again!

Tonight I worked the women’s basketball game against Clarke University which Augustana won 80-60, a pretty good win over a team that was 6-3 coming into the contest.  Working in the sports information office as much as I do, I know where to find interesting statistics such as Augustana women’s basketball has never lost to Clarke University.  We are now 8-0 against them all time.  Sorry if you do not enjoy statistics but here is another one; this was the women’s basketball team’s first home win since January 9, 2013, a span of 322 days.

I have one of the best seats in the house at most Augustana athletic events seeing as I take statistics at most events.  To put it more simply, I pretty much get paid to attend Augustana sporting events which is one of the best parts of my job!  Tonight I was the stat-caller for the person entering the statistics into the program that puts the live stats on the internet.

My advice to any freshman that enjoys sports statistics as much as I do is to get involved with our teams, who knows, you could end up wanting to make a career out of it like I plan to!
