Due to the construction of the new pool, one of the blue emergency phones on campus that was located near Regents has been taken down. That leaves only two left on campus — one behind Preus Library and the other outside of Olson Hall. Director of Campus Safety and Security Bob Harri confirmed that the phone was taken down, but will be put back up in the area shortly after construction has been completed. Harri addressed whether or not the phone’s absence is a big issue on campus. “We have the emergency blue phones in key locations on campus,” Harri said. “If someone’s in need of assistance, they can utilize those phones if they don’t have a cell phone with them, but most people today do.

News April 18, 2013 Luther grad to direct Aurora, Cathedral 2
Brita Moore Staff Writer No stranger to the Luther College choral program, Jennaya Robison (‘96) plans to bring her love of singing to Luther starting Fall 2013. She will succeed Sandra Peter as Aurora and Cathedral Choir director. “Luther is one of the top places to go for a choral conductor,” Robison said. “There’s such a pool of extraordinary talent.” Robison, who recently earned her doctoral degree at the University of Arizona, has worked as a soprano soloist, church musician, voice instructor and as a 2002-05 guest alumni lecturer at Luther. As part of the search process, she came and conducted both Aurora and Cathedral choirs. Aurora President Julia Reimann (‘16) was impressed with Robison. “She had really great energy, and everyone got really excited,” Reimann said. “She got an incredible sound out of us.” Robison studied music education at Luther, but she began as a vocal performance major. She credits studying conducting with Weston Noble (‘43) as the inspiration to add education to her degree. Robison felt that her classes challenged her to look at her beliefs in a new way. “It’s characteristic of a liberal arts college,” Robison said. “We had discussions about our classes in the caf. Some things I thought were black and white became areas of discussion.” Robison already impacted Aurora member Brianna Shelly (‘16). Shelly grew up in Scottsdale, Ariz., where Robison worked for several years as a church music director and as the co-founder for Scottsdale

Musical Arts, an organization for musicians in the Phoenix area. Shelly sang in a choir at the same church. She recalled that Robison approached her after a rehearsal one day and suggested that she take voice lessons. Robison ended up teaching her for four years. “I would never have realized how much I love music or opera or Luther if she hadn’t approached me,” Shelly said. “She’s very passionate about teaching people what an incredible art form this can be.” Robison’s conducting method helps unify a concept many singers struggle with – reconciling the difference between one’s choral voice and solo voice. “I’m going to see the students more than their voice teachers do, so my goal is to reinforce healthy singing,” Robison said. Both Reimann and Shelly noticed her effort to help them sing out in a choir and not feel the need to change their voices. “When she did warm-ups with the choir, they were the same warm-ups that I would do in my lessons,” Courtesy of Jennaya Robison Let’s get down to business. Robison had a chance Shelly said. to work with Aurora during the interviewing process. Reimann and the other choir officers met with
Robison during the search process to talk about some of her ideas. “She really wants a choir of voices who don’t have to hide or adjust, but rather sing in the full voice,” Reimann said. Robison isn’t the first Luther grad to return as a professor. Assistant Professor of Music Andrew Last (‘97) returned this year to direct Norsemen and Collegiate Chorale. The two directors attended Luther at the same time and sang in the Nordic Choir together. They look forward to working together again. “She was absolutely seen as a leader and rising star in her class,” Last said. While it will be a major change for the music department without either Sandra or Tim (‘86) Peter, Robison hopes to continue with the positive atmosphere Sandra Peter has created with Aurora and Cathedral. “I hope to change their lives,” Robison said. “Singing is my refuge, a place to strip away the walls and share who you really are through music. It’s hard to get that after Luther.”

In the midst of a college campus where Midwestern accents run rampant and students are criticized for
not to feel self-conscious. At least according to Associate Professor of Linguistics and French Laurie Zaring, who gave a lecture about attitudes toward the English language titled, “Beauty is in the Ear of the Beholder” on Tuesday, April 9. Zaring said she was interested in bringing the
to a wider audience and asking questions about our attitudes toward good and bad English use. Zaring subtle ways. “When you overhear something you have immediate attitudes about what that person is like,” Zaring said. The problem, according to Zaring, is when you make that person feel different or worse because of how they speak. “No one should feel self-conscious about how they talk, it’s part of who you are,” Zaring said. Nicole Lussier (‘16) came to Luther from Pasadena, Cali. She’s been called out before for having a different accent.
“My O’s are less round, a little bit more like a typical Californian accent,” Lussier said. Other differences Lussier has noticed are the way her Midwestern peers pronounce the words, root, roof and hammock. She knew her accent was apparent after hearing a Californian professor speak. “Not even in the way that he said words but the his voice even, I could tell that he was not from the Midwest,” Lussier said. Lussier thinks that being surrounded by Midwestern peers and professors has altered her accent. “People from home tell me I’ve adopted some things,” Lussier said. “When some of your professors say things strangely, especially if some of your close friends are from northern Minnesota, it affects you.” Zaring said that Luther should have two goals regarding language. “One is to become aware that we do make these snap judgaments based on the language,” Zaring said. The other, she said, is to work on having a wide range of linguistic modes. People need to be aware that their language changes based on the context and the medium, Zaring said, and that this is a good thing. The lecture attracted many professors. By contrast there were fewer than 10 students present. Zaring said she can understand why the topic of her lecture attracted an older audience. “I think a lot of adults of a certain age, especially in an educational context like Luther, become especially aware of language change,” Zaring said.

ok go! Olivia Hahn (‘13) (left), Gavin Colahan (‘13) and Karla Dietmeyer (‘13) performed as “the ok factor” (Olivia, Karla) this past Friday, April 12 at ArtHaus.
String duo ‘the ok factor’ plays a tune all their own.
Since coming to Luther, they have both played in Symphony Orchestra for four years, and are members of Strangz. Their deep interest in folk and alternative styles
experiment with these passions. “We knew we had to [start ‘the ok factor’] when The Goat Rodeo Sessions came out,” Dietmeyer said. “The album has Yo Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile ... their music is so inspiring and we felt like we had to just try it and see what happened.”
The small front room of Decorah’s ArtHaus has daisy yellow walls freckled with local art, soft peach light and a whole lot of homey warmth. Last Friday, April 12, a healthy crowd of Luther students and Decorah community members met in this sweet oasis to enjoy a night of music starring the Luther string duo ‘the ok factor.’ Luther seniors Olivia Hahn (‘13) and Karla Dietmeyer (‘13) formed the duo last spring but are not newcomers to the world of music.

as a major inspiration. “We went to the Eileen Ivers concert and afterwards both of us were ecstatic and crying,” Hahn said. “We were so pumped up after that concert. It was one of those times where you just know in your gut that you have to try something. It turned out to be a mutual feeling, so we went for it.”

In their approximate year as ‘the ok factor,’ Hahn and Dietmeyer have performed at several venues in Decorah, including the Water Street Music Festival, local schools and daycares. “One thing we’re very into is educational outreach,” Dietmeyer said. “We have a potential engagement at the University of Northern Iowa to do an arrangement workshop. We’re very interested in getting kids interested in music that they would not normally hear in the music classroom.” ‘Music not normally heard in the classroom’ is exactly what the ok factor does. They have a hard time categorizing their style, but usually use the phrases ‘folk-funk’ and ‘progressive folk.’ “Our base is classical technique and we look to build off of that,” Hahn said. “It’s like folk with a twist; a lot of the rhythm and stylistic things.” At their most recent ArtHaus performance, Hahn and Dietmeyer performed a variety of covers and original songs. The duo performed with Gavin Colahan (‘13), who opened the night with a set of his own before joining ‘the ok factor’ for four songs. The duo then took over the stage themselves. Though they will both graduate this coming May, Hahn and Dietmeyer intend on continuing performing together. “We have decided to spend the summer after graduation in Minneapolis and will continue to play there,” Dietmeyer said. “There are many opportunities for open mic nights and we’re hoping to do some recording with mutual friends. Mostly we just want to play a lot of music.”

Making waves with KPVL Peter Jarzyna
For a broadcast medium generally void of any faceto-face contact, radio in Decorah comes with a great deal of community involvement. Community radio station KPVL (89.1 The Blend) invited members and non-members to the Steyer Opera House at Hotel Winneshiek this past Saturday, April 13 to dance like it was their last night on earth. The event, one of two annual “soirées” hosted by KPVL, is an opportunity for the station to thank their current members and gain new ones. It featured a handful of musicians, refreshments and a silent auction. Regional and local musical talent contributed to the night’s success, featuring Winona’s raw, backwater bluegrass group Beetroot Stew, the night’s headliner. Local artists included pianist Mark Whelan, singersongwriter Gabriel Andreas and Luther student band The Trees. The Trees is a quartet featuring traditional folk and bluegrass instruments, but lead singer Tat Daniels Peter Jarzyna/Chips labeled their music more in the realm of “soul-grass.” Shaking the Trees.

Many in the ensemble feel that singing about being a woman is a perfect way to highlight Cantorei’s talent and camaraderie. “We really have built a community in our choir,” Ali Smith (‘15) said. “We trust each other and love each other, just like the women we are singing about … I think a group that loves each other will sing better together.” The Luther Ringers and Cantorei came together at the end of the concert to perform a mass piece. Members of both ensembles were excited to perform together and share in a memorable performance. “This concert is going to be a great chance for both of our ensembles to get our music out there for more people to hear,” Koenders said. “I think we’re going to have a bigger audience, and hopefully going forward even more students will be interested in the type of music we play.”

From Russia with love
Nik Sovurov talks about his journey to Iowa, his passion for cooking and the educational value of “That 70s Show.” Abby Carpenter
Frequent Marty’s-goers may have noticed a new drink on the menu – the “Moscow Fog – but might not know much about its creator, Nik, and his unconventional path to Luther. Nikolay Sovurov, “Nik,” is originally from Siberia. He moved to Iowa along with his wife and son 13 years ago for new opportunities and to be closer to his mother. But it wasn’t easy. The only English Sovurov knew were “hi” and “bye,” and his jobs were less than enjoyable. Because Sovurov knew virtually no English, it was hard to adapt to life in learned more and more English from a few friends, but mostly from TV shows like “That 70s Show” and “Friends.” “There’s a downside from learning from TV though,” Sovurov said. “If you’re watching, you’re not speaking. I understand a lot, but I just don’t speak it right. I understand 99% ... okay, more like 95%.” Because of the language barrier, it was job. Before coming to work at Marty’s this August, Sovurov previously worked at a factory for 10 years, and before that, at a turkey plant.
My manager liked it and decided to put it on the menu.” Because cooking is Sovurov’s greatest passion, he has been exploring the idea of opening his own business. The economy, however, makes it challenging. There’s the matter of getting a loan from the bank, these obstacles, Sovurov remains hopeful. “I know the food industry is tough, but I think I could make it,” Sovurov said. Since leaving Russia, Sovurov and his family haven’t looked back and have never gone back to visit in the past 13 years. Sovurov isn’t overly eager to visit again, but hopes to be able to show his son his heritage and home country someday. The only problem is the Russian government. “It’s too dangerous for him to go to Russia now because in Russia, it’s required that you go to the army,” Sovurov said. Even if his son only visited Russia, the government could keep him there because it is mandatory that every male serves, given that they have no health issues.

Why did you decide to study biology and French? I have always been very interested in medicine, so biology was an appropriate major for that. I was also interested in taking a lot of the upper level bio classes, like anatomy and physiology. I enjoy learning about other cultures and people, and really enjoyed French in high school, so I decided to add the French major as well. I hope that the unique combination will enable me to find interesting opportunities in the future. What is your dream job? I would like to be a surgeon or a medical examiner because I want to be involved with medicine somehow. I really enjoyed human anatomy and dissection, so I would love to have that as an everyday job.

I missed the memo on a lot of things around here, but there is one thing I for sure have not. That would be the Center Stage Series. My freshman year roommate volunteered for the shows quite a bit and fell in love with it. Although it took me awhile to get involved me. Now I serve as historian with the Performing Arts Committee, the student group that helps put on the shows. Being a part of PAC has made me look again at the role the arts play in my life, and I encourage all of you to do the same. There’s no question that Luther College is a pro-arts school. We don’t even need to look twice at the size of the music department, and especially music education, to see that. Our visual and performing arts department is thriving as well with fresh, inspiring works. All of this is part of our liberal arts curriculum which encourages authentic human expression. The Center Stage Series is an even further extension of this expression, bringing in
that end up connecting with countless other disciplines as well. Many members of the Luther community have embraced the series, but in recent years PAC has noticed a drop in student engagement, both in terms of show attendance and volunteerism. Of course we cannot pinpoint an exact reason for that, nor can we force that to change. But we can do our best to make the experience as amazing as we think it is. What could be more invigorating than watching a troupe of Chinese acrobats dazzle on the CFL stage, listening to a funky banjo player against a backdrop of red light, or hearing “All the world’s a stage” as it was originally imagined? These experiences only get better when you are surrounded by your best friends, setting up and tearing down the stage for the performers and hearing their stories, serving them the best food they’ve gotten all of their tours and eating pizza together in Qualley Lounge. Heck, we even end up running into them on Water Street with old trombones in their hands. The committee is more than about just putting on shows – it is a (sorry for the overused word) community, and puts the arts in the context of that community. Why would we put in the work that we do if we did not all love art for art’s sake and share that common thread among us? I got involved because my friends showed me it was worth it. Now I have even more new friends and a unique set of experiences helping to promote the shows and discover what Center Stage means to Luther College. I haven’t found an exact Our series for 2012-13 has concluded and we are so thankful for the time all of our volunteers contributed. Next year’s series will be made public soon. We hope that even more of you on campus will get involved. You can contribute as much or as little as you want, but every bit is appreciated. So don’t miss the memo: Center Stage Series reminds us of Luther College’s commitment to the arts.
Herseth’s family has requested that, in lieu of sending remembrance in the form of flowers, donations should be made to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, West-Eastern Divan Orchestra and Luther College. This kind act is one final reason why he should be honored on campus. I encourage you to further explore Herseth and his numerous

Dear Editor, The passing of orchestral icon and Luther College alumnus Adolph Herseth (‘43) is a monumental loss for the world of music. Herseth served as the principal trumpet of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra from 1948 to 2001 and as principal trumpet emeritus until 2004. His contributions to orchestral music and to music education are immense. Returning to Luther as a guest clinician for the Dorian Band Festival, Herseth inspired countless young musicians to pursue their craft and his accomplishments continue to inspire students from all over the world. The purpose of this letter is to express my fervent desire for Herseth to be honored on Luther’s campus in some concrete form. As a trumpet student and future music educator at Luther I take great pride in our studio’s heritage, yet it is difficult to find evidence on campus that Herseth is one of our honored alumni. When the Luther Trumpet Ensemble performed at the International Trumpet Guild conference in May of 2011 I spoke with many conference attendees and upon hearing that I was a student at Luther they immediately referred it to as “Bud” Herseth’s alma mater. Through constant dedication to his craft and supporting young students he distinguished Luther as a school which supports the growth of incredible musicians and compassionate people.
accomplishments. Recognizing his extensive achievements and contributions to our musical heritage will undoubtedly inspire future Luther musicians to strive for their very best and always remember the school which made that possible. Shannon Curtis ‘13

The magic of musical experiences
Social Media Director
As I find myself in the last couple of months of my senior year of college, I have taken some time to reflect on it. I have come to one important conclusion: Even though I am not a music major or minor myself, singing in choir has been one of the most memorable and blessed parts of it. I remember when I was searching for colleges, and I honestly had my heart set on moving down the street and going to Wartburg. What changed my mind you may ask? Well, I had the opportunity to come to Christmas at Luther and hear all of the musical talent present. I remember specifically that when I heard Tim Peter direct the Norsemen choir, I thought to myself “Wow… I have to be a part of this.” It quite literally made me speechless So I came to Luther College, made it into choir, and it has been more than worth it. It has been in choir that I have met some of the best friends I could have
ever asked for. I have lent my voice to a mass of such wonderful sounds and arrangements. I am proud to say I was a part of undoubtedly epic arrangements, including both John Rutter’s and Randol Alan Bass’ “Gloria,” “Hope for Resolution,” and “Arise, Your Light Has Come.” Additionally, songs like “Didn’t my Lord Deliver Daniel,” Wexford Carol, and this years “Sure on this Shining Night” will forever me engraved on my heart as just a few of the beautiful masterpieces that brought from me both smiles and tears. In my four years of choir I have witnessed what can only be described as the end of an era as well as the dawn of a new one. As the talented Dr. Craig Arnold left after my freshman year, Dr. Allen Hightower took over conducting Nordic Choir, bringing his knowledge and experience to the Luther Choral Program. Moving on, I remember – clear as day – the shock I felt when Dr. Tim Peter announced that he would be leaving Luther College. I will admit that some tears were spilled after that sudden announcement, as I’m sure many others did. I thought to myself that this man had been one of the main reasons for my choice of Luther College. How could my final year ever live up to Tim Peter’s legacy? Enter Dr. Andrew Last. What doubts I ever
possessed about singing in Collegiate Choir quickly dissipated, as Dr. Last took over with such talent and gusto that continued that honored tradition of “the choir of love.” With Dr. Sandra Peter leaving after this year, I am blessed to have sung under her in Cathedral Choir, and I am glad that my younger sister was able to witness – for even one year – the joy and friendship that she inspires. I feel incredibly blessed to have sung under each of these directors in at least some small way, and I am confident in the future of the Luther Choral Program. Additionally, I am confident that Dr. Jennaya Robison will continue this tradition while bringing her own unique experiences to the table as she takes over the mantle of the director of Aurora and Cathedral. My time singing at Luther can only be -Drew Mick (‘13) described as magical. And so I say this to all the singers here on campus, whether they are junior, sophomore, freshman, or future student: cherish it. These four years singing at Luther have truly been a blessing. In all likelihood I will never again find myself surrounded by such talented individuals, lending my voice to the whole of a beautiful song. But I know that I will look back at it all and smile. And I know you will too.
“My time singing at Luther can only be described as magical. And so I say this to all the singers here ... cherish it.”
Twitter – more than just for spats
When it comes to 140 characters, it’s easy to be opinionated, but when you sit down to write a 500 word article, it may not be that easy. Maybe that’s the trouble with Twitter. We can sit down and type
something up and as long as it’s short and snappy, you can say whatever you want. I’ve begun to see more Twitter spats than Facebook arguments these days, and I hear a lot more exclamations of, “Oh, let me tweet that!” There might be something a little dangerous about people turning to their phones and computers to go tweet something rather than turn to a neighbor and speak face-to-face. We’ve heard of this issue time and time again, the battle for our generation’s attention that’s being fought by everything electronic and, well, everything else. That being said, I probably shouldn’t be talking. I tweet numerous times a day and probably have one of the biggest tweet-per-day rate on the entire campus. I want it to be known that I recognize how concerning it is that so much of our
attention is being sucked up by social media and tunring us into not-so-social creatures, but I also want to defend the website where I spew thousands of pointless thoughts. Many Twitter accounts such as mine are for self-expression, but Twitter is by no news articles that I probably would have missed anywhere else on the Internet. Tons of news stations and newspapers have Twitter handles and post links to articles. Because of the lack of many other things such as Facebook-like games or apps of sorts, all I really see is my news feed, and so it’s easy to focus on what’s there rather than get consumed or overwhelmed. In
my opinion, you don’t miss nearly as many things on Twitter as you would on Facebook or Myspace. What you see is pretty much what you get, and not everything you get is nonsense. When it came to the tragedy in Boston this week, I got most of the information about what happened from news sources posting articles on Twitter. I don’t watch television and don’t get a ton of time to read newspapers, so if I hadn’t had a Twitter, I probably wouldn’t have known a lot about it and may not have even heard about it until the next day. So yeah, Twitter is not perfect, and by no means should I be commended on reaching 13,000 tweets, but it’s not one of the world’s evils. It provides news and enjoyable in moderation.

Far-reaching Norse movie nights charity event proving popular Eve Christensen
intend on continuing in this manner next year.
Staff Writer Despite not having as much space, former SAC The Norse Movie Night is one of the most popular events on campus. Students receive free popcorn and crowd into Valders 206 to see a movie that is not yet out on DVD. Since Fall 2012, SAC Cinema has had Norse Movie Nights on campus. This is a switch from movie nights at Viking Theaters in Decorah. In both cases, students could see a movie once a month for free with their CAF fee. However, now students have only one movie option, where they previously had two or three. Kelsey Moler (‘13) has attended all of the movies this year. “I really like having the movies on campus much better,” Moler said. “Yes, there is only one option, but they really try to pick popular choices that most people are interested in seeing.” The SAC Cinema co-chairs try to pick a popular movie based on how successful it was in theaters. Some movie nights are more successful than others. The Hobbit had over 300 students attending, but “When Harry Met Sally” shown on Valentines Day only had about 80 attendees. The decision to have movie nights on campus is saving SAC a large amount of money, and they
Cinema co-chair Quinn Meyer (‘13) explained the percentage of people coming to the movies with respect to the amount of seating is about the same. “The budget decreased, while still being able to provide movies to students,” Meyer said. Current SAC Cinema co-chairs Katie Nelson (‘16) and Emily Hagan (‘15) reported a few problems with the movies in Valders, such as during the showing of “The Bourne Legacy,” when the movie cut out in the middle. Also, at the beginning of the year, students threw popcorn at the screen during the movies. “They were throwing it by the bags,” Nelson said. “Some of the respect to the building was bad, but it’s gotten better as the year has gone on.” Some students wish for movies to be shown at the theater in Decorah again. Mari Kise (‘13) has attended Norse Movie Nights, but she thinks that the movies in town were better because there were more movies to see. “Students for free movie night at the theater would show up an hour before the doors opened sometimes, and in the winter, the weather was brutal,” Kise said. “Regardless of this, I think that movie night at the theater was better. More students, and more movies, which were able to reach more audiences.”

money for five organizations that provide people with food, water, shelter, clothing and energy. Thompson hopes to expand One for Five into a nonprofit. “I have so much to give so I feel like I should,” Thompson said. “It’s one of the happiest moments of my life when I can give my time, energy and money to save lives or help improve people’s lives.” Thompson decided to partner with Food for Kidz instead of similar companies like Kids Against Hunger or Feed My Starving Children because it’s not as well known. “I’m trying to find smaller businesses that are doing something great but don’t get as much acknowledgment as they should.” Thompson also wants to make the food-packaging event an annual service project at Luther, which Ernster encourages. “It’s a great cause and I would recommend to anyone to just go package a box,” Ernster said.

students are gathering information about being able to get more phones on campus and raising awareness for the need for these phones. “With all of the things that have been going on this year with campus safety, it’s necessary to take more safety precautions,” McDermott said. “More people get assaulted than we think, and that’s a scary thought.” According to Harri, however, the blue emergency phones are rarely used. “There has been a great deal of discussion about these phones at many colleges and universities because of the limited use they’re getting,” Harri said, “We’ve fortunately not had a large need for the phones, but I think if nothing else, the phones can help people feel more safe because then they know there’s that option should they need it.” Another issue surrounding the blue emergency phones has been the spaced out location of the phones. “Let’s say someone is near towers,” McDermott said. “The closest phone to them right now is behind the library, and the other one is by Olson, and depending on where you are, you may not be able to run that far fast enough if you had a real emergency.” Whether or not more blue emergency phones are added to our campus, the priority for Campus
Safety and Security is that all the students on campus not only are safe, but also feel safe. “I encourage people to contact security if they see something that’s amiss or something that’s
suspicious,” Harri said. “We certainly don’t mind checking things out, even if it turns out to be nothing of concern. We’d rather do that than wished we’d known but were not

Freya advances to regionals Emily Gehlsen
The women’s ultimate Frisbee team placed fourth at their conference tournament held at home last weekend, advancing to the regional tournament for the fifth year in a row. The tournament brought in twelve teams to campus to compete for a spot in the regional tournament, which will be held April 27-28 in Northfield, Minn. at Carleton College. “The tournament is to go to regionals, so only the top teams get to go,” Freya captain Laura Siebenaller (‘13) said. “Usually the top two or three get to go to the Division III regional tournament.” Out of the twelve teams that came to the conference tournament, Freya was ranked sixth at the beginning of the tournament. Freya came in with the common goal of claiming a spot in the Division III regional tournament. The teams each played every team in their bracket on Saturday, a total of four games. The winners of each bracket advanced to the elimination rounds held on Sunday afternoon. The team worked hard to make the tournament possible. The team put in a bid to host and was selected to host for the second time since 2011. Luther is a fairly central location for the Division III North Central Conference, which includes schools like Drake University, College of St. Benedict and Grinnell College. Last year, the conference tournament was held in Appleton, Wisc. “I couldn't be more proud about how Freya played,” Freya member Kenza Sahir (‘14) said. “I'm really looking forward to developing and refining through the next two weeks and going into regionals strong.” Planning for the event was a team effort, with different tasks assigned to various team members. “We had somebody do our brackets and plan that for us, but they were through Luther,” Freya member Calysta Rice (‘14) said. “We did delegate responsibilities to team members, like making posters and hanging them up and getting tournament food together for the other teams.”

Freya provided a trainer for the teams that participated, and had other volunteers from Luther helping out at the tournament. A large portion of the money that comes in from the tournament goes to expenses paid for coordinating the tournament. What is left over goes to Freya to help pay for various expenses like the team’s travel expenses, hotels and
the team’s recent spring break trip to Georgia. As for the upcoming years, Freya is willing to host the conference tournament again. “We would want to host next year, but it seems like they try to switch it around a little bit,” Sahir said. “It’d be super cool, and it’d be easy for us. It’s not too much work, and it’s convenient.”

It was a high-scoring affair in game two as both teams combined for 34 hits and 23 runs. Unfortunately for the Norse they came up on the short end of the stick of this nine inning game. Trailing 10-4 entering the bottom of the fifth, Simpson scored six runs on six hits to tie the game at 10-10. Luther retook the lead in top of the sixth when Knippenberg drove in Larson for his third RBI of the game. Simpson took the lead for good in the bottom of the seventh scoring twice en route to the 12-11 victory. Pittman (4-for-6), Knippenberg (4for-5), Hendrikson (3-for-4), Larson (2-for-6) and David Lowe (‘15) (2for-4) led the offensive attack for the Norse.
Both teams completed the series with Iowa Conference records of 4-8. Luther is 8-12 overall and Simpson is now
8-13. Luther plays the University of Dubuque next on April 19 at Dubuque. The game begins at 1:00 p.m.

The track and field teams hosted the Norse Relays meet at Carlson Stadium on Sat. April 13, both taking first place despite the cold and wind. The men placed first out of eight teams with 140 points followed by Carleton College with 127 and Ashford taking third with 70 points. Notable finishes on the men’s side include Joel Clarke (‘15) in the 110 hurdles (15.77), Josh Olson (‘16) in the triple jump (41-2.25) and the 4 x 200 relay team of Clarke, Henry Jungbauer (‘15), Jonathan Williams (‘15) and Nick Clark (‘13) (1:30.15), all taking first. The women placed first out of six teams with 167 points followed by Augustana-Rock Island with 116 and Hamline in third with 76. The women’s 51-point winning margin came from first place finishes in five of six relays
and numerous top finishes in field events. On the track, the women won the 4 x 100, 4 x 200, 4 x 400, 4 x 800 and 1600 sprint medley events. The 4 x 800 relay of Maggie Pierson (‘14), Annie Klepper (‘13), Sydney Gehrt (‘16) and Tricia Serres (‘16) set a Carlson Stadium record with a time of 9:19.95. The time is the second-fastest in Luther history. Addy Rickels (‘13), Leah Broderick (‘15) and Hannah Theisen (‘16) placed first, second and third in the high jump, respectively. The track and field athletes looked forward to the meet for multiple reasons. “We have quite a few teams coming and a lot of alumni come back and run with us,” Maddie Lambert (‘14) said. “Every meet we race is taken pretty seriously but this one makes it fun because we’re racing against old teammates along with people from other schools so it’s fun and competitive.” The meet draws alumni athletes every year and is a unique part of the event. Olivia Mitchell (‘16) enjoys the team aspect of relay events. “[Relay events] are nicer because you’re with three other people and you get to warm up together and encourage each other,” Mitchell said. “If you’re
by yourself you’re on your own and you have to compete against each other whereas with three other people you’re going with them and you can rely on each other.” While the majority of events were relay events, the Norse relays also featured individual field and hurdle events. The weather, unusually cold for April, was on the mind of athletes. “It’s cold outside but it’s good to get out and get some good races in,” Soren Thompson (‘14) said. “The only thing that can really affect you is the wind. It’s not too bad. In the cold you can warm-up and get out there and get going. Just staying warm and getting loose before the race is important.” While cold and windy, the weather was still better than in Minnesota where many meets were cancelled due to snow. “We’ve got some good competition coming from Minnesota because they’re all snowed in up there, so everyone is coming down here,” Thompson said. The team’s success can be attributed to hard work and team cohesion. “All of our track meets are pretty fun since we have the whole team here,” Clark said. “They’re supportive and it’s just a good, positive environment.”
