As an athlete at Hanover College, I enjoy watching other sports and Hanover athletes in action. One sport that I had never watched before I came to Hanover is lacrosse. Because of my job as an event staff member, I’ve had the opportunity to see some lacrosse games. I like my job, and an added…

Hamstrings, quads and knees, oh my!

I went down today. I just felt pain and fell straight down to the ground. It’s much less dramatic than I am making it sound, but it really did hurt. This is my fourth season running track at Hanover College, and up to this year I never had so many injuries. As a freshman, I…

Twelve hours, 100 e-mails

Hello interweb! So this past week was a long one. I had both a quiz and exam in anatomy and we finally got to meet the cadavers we will work with this coming Thursday. This week seems a bit better, only exams and quizzes are where the peanut butter should be in a normal sandwich. My…

Zero to sixty

Coming from doing absolutely nothing for three weeks to a slew of meetings, Sig stuff, track, homework and other things is a time where reality backhands the smile off my face. The first week back has been hectic to say the least. I am taking anatomy, which is one of the hardest classes Hanover offers. It pretty…
