Each year, Augsburg College athletes sprint, skate, dive, throw, swim, and leap countless times as they prepare for and compete in athletic contests. Because competition records and stats generally offer only a glimpse of what happens on the court, field, or mat, we compiled some lesser-known facts to boost your #AuggiePride and to showcase the teamwork, collaboration, celebration, and effort that converge in Augsburg athletics.
