Spring is the season of love.
As predictable as the changing leaves, these few months of romance and rebirth are forever accentuated by pairs of starry-eyed lovers carousing about the newly green countryside. However, in case your affectionate advances or playful panderings are ill-received this year, may I introduce you to a new lover: March Madness. The Madness is an accommodating mistress, who will return your flirtatious advances with more excitement than you can imagine in your most decadent and uninhibited dreams.
For the majority of St. Olaf students, spring break is a time to see family and friends, travel to a warmer climate, or just simply relax. For members of the Ole baseball and softball teams, next week is anything but a vacation: Both squads will travel south to open up their seasons by playing rigorous schedules against some tough competition.
Last Saturday, the St. Olaf alpine ski team triumphed in Brundage, Idaho. The team combined with the nordic ski team to win the United States Collegiate Ski Association (USCSA)s Presidents Cup, which is a combined nordic, alpine and snowboard title.
