Sophomore Isabella Hickey begins to approach the foul line for the second round of the game. The three step approach is the most common technique for candlepin style bowling, and the less shifting weight from each foot makes the delivery more productive.

Cyndi Aldrich Hosts Morning Meditation

Nurse Cyndi Aldrich instructs a meditation session every Tuesday and Thursday morning. Throughout the program, participators close their eyes and relax as Aldrich plays music and reads from a meditation guide. Aldrich’s ultimate goal in doing the Morning Meditation sessions is to provide a way of relieving any anxiety and stress students and faculty may develop throughout the school week.
