Hey GymDawg fans!
We are moving into week four of our season and the team is extremely excited for our meet against Utah this Friday at our home arena!
We just got back from Oregon State over the weekend which was our first away meet of the season. The bus ride and the trip was a great opportunity for our 2010 team to bond and get to know one another better. Team trips are fun because although the focus is on the meet, away meets allow extra time for all of us to just hang out and create some great memories together! On the bus ride there and back we watched a couple of hilarious movies! I shared a room with Paige Bixler, one of the freshmen, and we had a blast! It was really nice getting to know her better and being able to talk with her. It is fun to laugh and chat with the rest of the team and it allows us to become closer which in turn will hopefully make us a better and stronger team on the competition floor!
Oregon State, being our first away meet, did not go as well as we would have hoped, but it gave us some great experience and practice competing on the road as a young team.
This week, we are working that much harder in the gym in order to come back and hit against Utah this week. We are all picking little things that each of us can do to get a tenth or two back to our scores. Everyone is working hard and is getting pumped for this Friday! I can't wait to see you all there!
As for life outside of the gym, school is going well and is getting pretty busy! It has been nice to have so many home meets and have weekends to relax and see family and friends. Last weekend, I went home to hang out with my parents and my older brother! It was really nice to be able to see them and spend some time with them on top of my busy schedule! I was also pretty excited to see my cat, Oreo, because I really missed him!
Well that's all for now. Hopefully I will see everyone this Friday! Go Huskies!
