MNU Basketball and The 3rd Half

Hello everyone! We thought you all might like to see some of the things that we do here on campus, so check out our video where we show you some of the basketball game vs. Benedictine College. Afterwards we went to Land Gymnasium for 3rd Half, an event that ASG puts on for the students to go to and have fun after basketball games! Enjoy!

MAKING HISTORY

Semi-finals of the Conference Tournament: When you think of a MNU vs Baker match, you immediately picture two big crowds, excitement, emotions, and competition. You have one side in red and blue and the other one in orange and white. You have loud cheers and an even louder bench. When you play Baker, you leave nothing on the field! When we played Baker in the semi-finals, it meant revenge. Last year, we lost against them in PKs and it was the end for our season. We lost 3:2 in season this year, clearly being the better team in the second[…]

Happy Halloween!

For Halloween, we had a tournament in practice. The juniors had to choose teams of four and then we each played each other for points. The highlight was that we all dressed up. It always is a lot of fun and brings the tournament to another level. My first year, the coaches dressed up as one of the players, Allie Harvey, and one group put balloons in a trash bag which presented Jelly Beans. I must admit my first year was difficult to top, but with this team you never know. From getting wake up calls in the morning at[…]

AWAY GAMES

This weekend, we had to travel to Dubuque, Iowa where we played Clarke University. The great part about away games is the traveling. For once, you get out of Olathe and see something new. The bad part about it is that reality catches up with you quickly and you realize how much behind you are in school. Until I came to MNU, I never had to travel farther than 2 hours away from my hometown. Now, we travel several hours to Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, or just in Kansas. Our last trip took us all the way to Iowa, past[…]

Chicago and Championships

Over the break a few friends and I stayed at Jordan’s house in Champaign, IL which we used as a home base for getting to Chicago and exploring the city. We had some mishaps along the way such as losing Levi’s bag on the side of the highway when, wrapped in a trash bag to protect it from rain, it escaped the ties binding it to the roof of our car and didn’t even make it into Missouri. Unfortunately we didn’t realize this had happened until we were a few hours into the trip. Levi handled things really well though[…]

The Road to Recovery

The first few days after surgery, all I wanted to do was sleep, sleep, and more sleep. The pain medication, the doctor provided me, made me sleepy within, 30 minutes. I would say by day three or four, the pain was excruciating. So, I made sure to just stay in bed and keep it elevated. Crutches, are for sure, my new cardio. Within the first couple of days, I knew, I had to get my tolerance built up. I did not start actually crutching a lot, until, day five or six; but my arms sore the first few days. The[…]

Surgery is Near

The start of my MNU Track and Field career, has taken a turn. What may, some days, feel like a set back, is actually a step forward in the right direction. It has been a while since, I have talked about track and the new team on campus. This last fall, I was hit with some, saddening news. The news was, that, I was going to need surgery on both my ankles; if I wanted to continue running, and be able to walk in the future. Towards the end of last semester, I found out that my season had come to an[…]

The adventures have begun . . . . . . Two weeks ago, got a three day weekend! MNU calls it “fall break.” It is really just a Friday off from school, but I was not complaining! So, I made a spontaneous decision, to get away for the three day weekend. I needed to take a break from all the midterm exams and studies. When people ask, what city I am from in Northern California, I say, Sacramento. Why, because it is the closest city to me, for someone who, does not truly know California. I am actually not from[…]
