Parents / Family: Dr. Mark Day, Janie Day, Allison Day (junior at Loyola of Chicago where she plays D1 basketball)

Activities: Cooking and grilling for my team teammates

Favorite Mount Union memory: There's too many to narrow down to one specific memory. I'll always remember the friends and people I met, and the friendships that were cut too short.

Open Quote: "If being at Mount Union didn't teach me anything else, it taught me perseverance and learning to adjust when things don't go your way. Being apart of two sports teams it was like having two separate families away from home. I know my coaches would do anything for me and my teammates were always there to lift me up and encourage me. They say sports are just a game, but if you've ever been an athlete beyond high school...you know there's so much more to it that isn't seen on the surface."

Mount Union's spring sports teams had its seasons cut short and including in that was senior day for these teams, so over the next few weeks, we want to take an opportunity to honor each of the seniors in baseball, softball, men's and women's golf, men's and women's golf, men's and women's lacrosse, men's and women's tennis and men's and women's outdoor track and field. Follow along and help us give this small token of appreciation for the years of work and dedicaiton
