By Sam Johnson The Bethel University volleyball team (4-1) opened its home slate of games for the season Aug. 4 by defeating the University of Minnesota-Morris Cougars (3-2) in four sets. Energetic students, faculty and Royals supporters packed the Robertson Center gymnasium to capacity as they saw the Royals’ winning streak extend to four games.

The three rooms are designated for football, men’s basketball and other remaining men’s sports. For women, one varsity locker room was built for all female athletes.

However, according to Title IX Coordinator and Chief Human Resources Officer Cara Wald, the layout…

“Living the Dream”

in Culture Arts & Lifestyle/Sports by

Some people may shy away from being the “go-to-person” at work, but not Minnesota Twins Ballpark Operations Assistant Chelsey Falzone. Having Target Field as your office may sound glamorous, but what most people don’t understand is that someone has to make it look that way. Falzone is that person. Whatever the ballpark needs, she does. If there’s an overflowing toilet, she solves the problem. If Terry Ryan wants feedback on how the team is playing, she gives it.
