There hasn’t been a more dedicated athlete at AI over the past few years than St. Ansgar junior Natalie Halfman. As the track season is now underway it’s exciting to see all of Natalie’s hard work paying off. On Monday Natalie won the 400m, the 800m, was part of the 1st place sprint med team, and her 4×400 team finished 3rd. Keep up the good work Natalie!!

Winning Ain’t Easy

I am a firm believer that the key to success is being happy and most people I meet that are happy have goals and work hard to achieve them. The people I meet that are not happy don’t know what they are working for and have no direction. Whatever sport you play or activity your involved in you should have goals and work towards them and don’t be afraid to fail along the way. Winners are made through some of the greatest failures!
