Causing a Racquet - Nadia Abdala
Sept. 28, 2009
Hey Sun Devil Fans!
On Monday, after our individual practice, Michelle, Sianna, Sheila, and I went to Jacobson Elementary School in Chandler to participate in Sparky's Tour. We got very nervous when we heard that we had to speak in front of 650 kids, but fortunately our nerves went away as we saw the excitement and smiles of the kids. It was a great experience because we related some of our own experiences at ASU to show the importance of being a good student and making healthy decisions in life.
This past week in practice we played a lot of sets, both singles and doubles, in order to get ready for our upcoming individual tournament in California. Everyone is playing great and really looking forward to playing the tournament.
On the track on Tuesday, we ran the mile in order to improve our conditioning. On Thursday, we ran short sprints in order to be agile and explosive. We are looking forward to another great week of practice and kicking off the fall season with our first tournament this weekend.
