Bolivar’s Lady Liberator tennis hosted their District Championship on Saturday, bringing in teams from Clinton, Lamar, and Nevada. Tensions and emotions were high throughout the sunny and hot day. “Not only is it physically demanding on a hot day like today, tennis is 90% mental,” head coach Nathan Rothdiener said about his team’s preparation going into today’s contest, “You are out on an island, nowhere to hide when things go bad, and you have to battle your opponent, the conditions, crowd, and your own emotions. As a coach, we do our best to reiterate to the girls that success is not defined by wins and losses, it’s defined by how you approach the game.” more
Lady Liberators softball hosted three games in the second half of this week. As the team looked to turn their season around for a late postseason push, they fell short of their opponents. On Thursday, Sept. 28, Bolivar hosted the Kickapoo Chiefs. This has become a match-up known for being physical and filled with great play. However, by the end of the 4th inning, Bolivar was down 4-3. The Lady Liberators could not consistently get hits throughout the contest. Kickapoo put up nine runs in the next two innings as their offense outplayed Bolivar’s defense. After the poor defensive performance, the bats fell silent for the Liberators, failing to record a run and only having 3 hits in the final 4 innings. It was an unexpected outcome for a Bolivar team that has seen major improvements throughout the year. more

Life really keeps us guessing. I began my professional career in Colorado Springs after I graduated college in 2014 with a Master's in History. I was offered a job at my alma mater, the University of Colorado, as a co-professor in a few history and humanity classes. I then began teaching history at a community college, then moved on to teaching middle school history for a couple of years. Initially, teaching college was not on my radar, but I loved it. Then teaching pre-teens about WWI and the Cold War was never a consideration, but I thrived doing it. I figured everything was set. I was going to be a historian, teach history, and grow old in Colorado. As is often the case, however, things do not always go to plan. more
