Over this holiday break student athletes involved in men’s and women’s basketball, men’s volleyball and wrestling had to stay on campus for practices, games and lifting sessions.

Many of these student athletes were lucky to spend, at most, a week at home.

As women’s basketball player Bailey Grayvold, junior elementary education major, said, “Although our time is limited at home, it’s a special time because we get to completely focus on just being athletes.”

Even though the fan base is small during these games, the women’s basketball team is able to keep the energy flowing both on and off the court by having team dinners and movie nights.

Junior Matt Stolz, exercise science and sports studies major, from the men’s volleyball team said, “I don’t think it bothers me that I don’t get to go someplace warm or go see friends [over break]. It is all about being a part of the team.”

Men’s volleyball is next headed to California for the Cal Lutheran Posada Royale Invitational to be played on Jan. 22-23. Men’s and Women’s basketball both have home games against Concordia University Chicago on Saturday, Jan. 23.
