This week was homecoming weekend here at St. Norbert. Homecoming is a campus wide celebration of everyone who has graduated from here. It gives the alumni a chance to come back on campus to see what has happened since they graduated. Homecoming also equals a home football game which was a nice change compared to the last two weekends with long bus rides.
Usually there is a homecoming parade with all of the Fraternities, Sororities, and the football team, but it got cancelled due to bad weather Saturday morning. This bad weather kept on for the rest of the day and had a big effect on our football game. The mindset of the entire football team was special that day and everyone was fired up and ready to go at one o’clock for the kick off. This led to an early lead for us, which we were able to keep for the rest of the game. We ended up winning the game 79-7 which is a record setting score for us.
This upcoming week we have a bye week, which means we do not have a game next weekend. This allows the players that have been hurt to recover and for the team to improve before coming back and playing our next team. This also gives us the first weekend off since we began school!
On other news, tomorrow (Monday) I have another meeting with the T.R.I.P.S program. I have been picked to be in charge of the finances of our trip to Arkansas. This will be interesting, especially because we have a very limited budget. We also have to do some fundraising to help cover the expenses of the trip.
That is all for this week!
