A few days off. Sor­ry guys. I start­ed the morn­ing at Augs­burg shoot­ing the Min­neso­ta Du­als, a quad­ran­gu­lar in­volv­ing the four Di­vi­sion III wrestling schools in Min­neso­ta: No. 2 Augs­burg, No. 8 St. John’s, No. 18 Con­cor­dia and St. Olaf. This evening, I de­cid­ed to try some­thing new and shoot ten­nis. Hav­ing played ten­nis once 15 years ago and nev­er hav­ing shot it be­fore, it was quite a steep learn­ing curve. I hope to shoot it again soon.
