Women’s soccer improved its win total by six games with an 8-11-1 season, with a group of young players led by conference Rookie of the Year Bethany Schultz (LPS) to finish sixth in the UMAC. The men’s soccer program finished its season 7-10-2, a four-win improvement over the ’09 season. The men also had a young group, with first-team allconference performer Kaleb Buch (Manitowoc LHS) leading the way.

Living with strangers: One of the biggest adjustments I had was the dorm life. It was interesting living next to complete strangers, but those strangers have become some of my closest friends. Always game day: When my friends and I aren’t busy doing homework, we find ourselves outside playing Ultimate Frisbee or inside the gym playing speedball or a pickup game of basketball. It’s okay to come and go: For those of you who aren’t sure what to do, I would suggest coming to MLC. If you later find out it’s not for you, that’s ok, because in the time you were here you will have grown in your faith and witnessed God’s gift of the ministry in a new light.
