GymDawg Journal: Hatsune Akaogi

Feb. 18, 2009

Hello Husky Fans!

I can't believe we are already over halfway through season. It feels like just yesterday we were getting ready for our first meet. As a freshman, I can say that my first season of college gymnastics has been so much fun. The excitement and team aspect of it at every meet is completely different from club gymnastics. I love everything from throwing t-shirts at the pumped-up crowd during our home meets to getting to travel and spending time with my teammates on away meets.

This past weekend we flew down to sunny California for a quad meet against UCLA, Cal State Fullerton and Boise State. After a rough start, we were able to stay focused and end well on floor and vault. We've really been working the small details during practice and it definitely showed at this meet with more hit handstands and stuck landings.

Well this weekend should be another exciting home meet against Oregon State, Eastern Michigan and Illinois. My dad is coming to Seattle for the first time ever for this meet so I'm looking forward to seeing him too. But for all of our fans who have come to our meets, thank you so much for your support this season. Can't wait to see you all this Saturday!!
