MIAA Champs!

The MIAA Championships were held last Saturday, and the Calvin Knights continued their streak of wins! Tim won the race in a time of 25:01, and his teammates followed, taking 10 of the top 12 places. Tim received his second MIAA MVP award, and the team is really excited about the NCAA D3 Regionals race, to be held in 2 weeks at Hanover College in Indiana. Go Knights! (Above, the lead pack from the Championships: the 3 obvious Calvin runners are, left to right, Jon Gries, Harrison Jorritsma, and Tim.)

Workshop in Colorado Springs

I had a wonderful time in Colorado Springs last weekend. Several of us from Los Alamos made the treck to hear Andrew Kern and learn more about his writing curriculum, the Lost Tools of Writing. If you are interested in more about the worshop, please link on the right to my Finfamclassical page, where I will post my notes. Those of us who rode up together had a wonderful, sweet time of fellowship and sharing. Leslie McCrea hosted us and spoiled us rotten! And Leslie Schwager hosted a Saturday evening soiree afterwards at her home. It was a wonderful time to meet many of my Class-ed (online classical education loop) friends, and, indeed, it was fun to meet Andrew in person after meeting him on Class-ed several years ago. Above is the group that spent Saturday evening toegther discussing ideas and books and faith. From left to right: (sitting) Kris Hollis, Los Alamos; Andrew Kern, NC; (standing) Kelley Baer, Los Alamos; Leslie Schwager, Kathleen Boyd, Debbie Barker, Wilma Lefler CO; Jacqueline Weaver, me, Catherine Daly, Los Alamos; Leslie McCrae, CO.

Notre Dame

The Calvin Knights trounced the competition in the Gold Race at the Notre Dame Invitational on Friday, Septemeber 29. They won with 31 points, and if you had taken their top two finishers (Tim and Harrison) out of it, they would *still* have won! Tim was second over all, and they had all 5 scorers in the top 9! You can see the full results here: http://tinyurl.com/fcofd

This Friday it's off to the Michigan Intercollegiates to run a 4K race. Tim is under the weather this week, so we would appreciate your prayers for a swift recovery!
