So I have lived in Kansas for my entire life and love the change of seasons. I would be bored without the constant changing of weather that makes Kansas what it is. This weekend we had our first “snow” of the season, which I don’t actually count as snow because it didn’t accumulate and it wasn’t below freezing. It definitely caused a lot of excitement on campus though.
This weekend and this week are also the second round of Humans vs. Zombies. If you don’t know what that is, don’t worry, it’s kind of a college campus thing. Like Facebook was. It’s basically a huge game of tag where you start with one “zombie” who “infects” (tags) the humans. The humans can stun a zombie by shooting it with a nerf gun or throwing a sock at it. The players are identified by a bandana around the head for zombies and a bandana around the arm or leg for humans. The humans are usually also identifiable by the huge nerf guns they tote around campus. I am not participating in this game because I hate being paranoid and would like to get to class without people chasing me, but a lot of my friends play and enjoy it.
Yes indeed, you’d better believe it. The team was started a few weeks ago by a couple of students, and they’ve been playing informal games on Saturday afternoons.
The game is played on the Green, and as in the “real” sport, players run around with brooms (or Swiffers!) between their legs while dodging Bludgers and trying to score goals past the Keeper.The Bethel games have done a pretty good job of sticking true to the famous Harry Potter sport, with the only obvious difference being that the game is played on terra firme rather than up in the air.
Hey Everyone! Okay so today is a day of chances and opportunities. The football team has their last day at Sterling at 1:30pm. Also the Volleyball team is playing in the championship game of their post-season tournament at Friends at 8pm. Both of these match ups will be intense and worth watching. The volleyball match will be streamed online also. The basketball teams also have games today. The men are in Nebraska and the women have a game at home!
This past weekend my own fall sports experience at Bethel College came to an end. We had our last meet of the season, the KCAC championship meet at Kansas Wesleyan. It was terrific weather, and both the men’s and women’s teams performed admirably. We exceeded all pre-season predictions to finish fifth for each team. The last meet saw some of the best performances of the season as we finished on a strong note. Now we turn the page on another part of life, looking forward to the trailing end of the semester and the upcoming class projects and finals that are increasingly staring us down. We have two and a half weeks of solid work ahead of us before we get our last pre-Finals respite, Thanksgiving Break.
The start of November means that it is time to switch gears. Football, Soccer and Volleyball have almost completed their seasons. They all have their first league game this weekend! I wish them all good luck in their tournaments!
It is getting colder outside and that means basketball season is rolling around! I am so excited, of course, because I am a basketball player! This is my favorite time of year!
Women’s basketball’s first game is Thursday in Oklahoma and the men’s first game is here at home on Friday, November 5th! Come out and support our basketball teams! I know everyone on campus is pretty excited to kick off this season. We have such a great fan base and the students really come out and support all of our teams. This is one reason I really love Bethel!
