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.
