I also liked the girls on the basketball team and the atmosphere of the small college.” Linfield legacy: “Both my parents, Scott and Kim (Schroeder) ’79 and ’78, attended Linfield, had a great experience and encouraged me to check it out. Two uncles, Tom Maltman ’77 and Mark Schroeder ’82, ’99; grandpa the late Loral Schroeder ’56; and cousins Sally Preppernau ’00 and Scott Preppernau ’04 also attended. My grandma, Mary Lou Vineyard, worked at the Linfield Research Institute.” Linfield to host regional baseball playoffs For the third time in six years, Linfield College has been selected to serve as host site for one of eight NCAA Division III regional playoff tournaments in 2014. The multi-team regional tournament is set for May 14-18 at Linfield’s Jim Wright Stadium and Roy Helser Field. The winner of the double-elimination playoff tournament earns one of eight spots in the NCAA finals May 23-27 in Appleton, Wis. Major and future: “I chose exercise science as my initial major and then decided to add nursing. I am looking forward to experiencing the Portland Campus and getting involved in the nursing program. Ultimately I would love to work with children in some kind of health care setting.” Goals for senior year: “My goals academically are to keep up with all my classes and maintain grades to get into the nursing program. Athletically, my goal for our team is to make it to conference playoffs. I also want to make it a priority to spend time with teammates outside of practice and enjoy the time we have left together.” On being a student athlete: “I couldn’t imagine college any other way. Participating in college athletics is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that not many people get. I am so thankful for that opportunity and the family that has come from it.” Advice for student athletes: “Soak up every little bit of it, it goes faster than we think. Enjoy this time and opportunity. Being a college athlete can be exhausting and overwhelming but being a part of a team and family is 100 percent completely worth it.” Fall sports by the numbers Approximate miles raced by the cross country teams combined Average points scored per game by the Linfield football team Student-athletes who received all-NWC honors (19-football, 10-soccer, 4-cross country, 1-volleyball) NWC Players of the Year (Josh Yoder ’14, Dominique Forrest ’14 and Emily Fellows ’14) 3
