Hey Dawg fans,
This is my first year here at the University of Washington and I love it! I was drawn to Washington because of the natural beauty and the friendliness of the people. I think coming here was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have the most wonderful teammates and there is nothing that the staff would not do for us. I cannot tell you how welcome I have felt and how proud I am to be a Husky!
The weather transition has been a little rough on some of the gymnasts, but we are such a strong and committed team that we can always pull through. Haley was our Top Dawg this week. Her infectious smile and great attitude always motivates me!
In the gym we have been working on partner sets. We each are assigned a partner and you work together to complete your assignment. We encourage each other until we both have successfully completed our assignments. As the season gets closer and closer this is a fun way to incorporate a little bit of pressure.
My mom was here for the weekend, she was at our practice on Friday and she is not only impressed with my teammate's gymnastics abilities but also with their attitudes and friendliness. I am so excited to start the season so that I can meet the wonderful fans!!!
It's a great day to be a Dawg and a Dawg fan.
