Women's basketball breaks record
The women’s basketball team went on a scoring rampage on Saturday, Nov. 30 against North Central College. The women put up 108 points to tie the Luther single-game scoring record. The Norse tallied 30 assists and 80 rebounds in their 108-93 win, setting new school records in those categories. The 80 rebounds shattered the old record of 60 rebounds, set in 1984 against Iowa Wesleyan.
Fall scenes and drama queens
Opera music filled the Noble Recital Hall on Nov. 22 and 23, as students took part in Fall opera scenes, a performance titled “Duels, Divorce and Divas.”
“What’s with that crazy b*tch?” “I don’t know, maybe she’s on her period.” These are sentiments I hear all too often. People referring to their girlfriends as psychos, people shaking their head in annoyance at an angry female … you see it all the time. As an angry female myself, I can’t help but feel offended by such occurrences.
Wrestling is a sport of physical dominance. This physical competition brings a lot of attention to weight advantages; obviously the heavier and larger a person is, the more difficult it is to wrestle him or her to the ground. In the spirit of fairness, the sport of wrestling uses weight classes to eliminate excessive size advantages in matches.
The women’s swimming and diving team finished fifth out of 10 teams and the men finished fifth out of six at the Rochester Invitational on Sunday, Dec. 8. The two-day event was a test of will for the Luther teams as they faced a mix of Division II and III teams.
Some athletes in college have time constraints to do what they want in their respective sport and improve their performance. The four years that they get seem to fly by and can leave something to be desired. That’s why when an opportunity arises for a fifth season to compete, many wouldn’t hesitate to take that chance.
The end is here.
As I finish up my final semester of working at Chips (and shed a few tears while doing so), I’m starting to realize how lucky I am to have this job. In the spring of my sophomore year, I was listlessly going through the motions of going to class, doing homework and taking naps. My life, to put it bluntly, was utterly aimless. I was having the ubiquitous mid-college crisis.
I wish I could fully describe my Luther experience in 300-500 words, but it doesn’t take a genius to know that’s not adequate. However, I have devoted a great deal of my time to two groups on campus: Luther College Symphony Orchestra and Chips. If I can say just a little about these organizations, I can show you a glimpse of who I’ve become.
Students, faculty and alums gathered for a reception in the Jenson-Noble Hall of Music on Saturday, Dec. 7 to honor Luther College alum Curtis Reiso (‘54) and to dedicate the building’s atrium in his honor. Reiso worked for Luther College from 1954 to 1994 in the development office and as the music tour coordinator.
