A window inside life at Augustana College

That looks cool!

  Everyone loves new uniforms, especially really cool ones! But sometimes those “cool uniforms” are impossible to read from further than 10 feet away…let alone in a press box.  Here are a few examples of jerseys that sports information departments hate! The worst part is, Augustana is guilty of having hard to read jerseys as […]

My Augustana internship experience hosting an NCAA women’s lacrosse game

For most people week nine consists of countless tests, quizzes, exams, and presentations. However, my final week nine has been a little different. On top of presenting my senior inquiry research in aquatic biology from this past fall, I have also been planning and preparing for an NCAA second-round women’s lacrosse game along with a […]

Your latest women’s lacrosse news is here!

In the last week I have had the opportunity to write seven stories reporting on Augustana’s women’s lacrosse team. The team has had a monstrous week. Starting on Monday, April 28th, the team returned to the NCAA National Rankings at 26th place.  Tuesday evening Tisdale’s unit wrapped up an undefeated regular season with a stomping […]

Your Augustana Athletics update

To follow-up my last blog post, I wanted to catch everyone up on how the Vikings faired on Saturday. Baseball was able to sweep the series with Millikin and claim the program’s first regular season championship since 1974….which is 40 years for anyone that doesn’t math well. The Vikings earned hosting rights for the CCIW […]

It’s a big day for Augustana athletics

Typically my blogs revolve around just lacrosse, my internship(s), or sports information in general. Today I am broadening my horizons (just a little) to inform you of how big today will hopefully be for the Augustana sports nation.   We’ll begin with baseball. With victories in both of today’s contests the Vikings will claim the […]

History is repeating itself

For the second year in a row, both the men’s and women’s lacrosse teams have clenched births in their conference tournaments. The men’s team was able to hold on for the fourth and final spot despite an overtime loss in Elmhurst. The team will face Aurora, who is undefeated in the conference, for their final […]

How I got locked IN Carver Center

Usually my weeks are pretty normal. I go to my two classes and put in between 45 and 55 hours in the sports information office for my six-credit internship/job…this week didn’t seem like it would be any different, until Wednesday night. On that evening the Augustana men’s lacrosse played on the road at MSOE (Milwaukee […]

Augustana lacrosse programs combine for perfect 5-0 week

This week was great in terms of experiencing the sports information lifestyle…and also a lot of work. Tuesday we hosted a baseball doubleheader at 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. and then women’s lacrosse at 7:30 p.m. the same day. I had the opportunity to work all three events following a couple hours in the office to […]

Putting a good spin on not so good things

In the sports information business, as in life, it is necessary that we are always able to find the good in every situation…including a 23-1 loss. Luckily, Augustana was on the 23 side of that game and I got to write a much more upbeat story. However, I was curious how the other side of […]
