This is Ekaterina Tour and I’m a senior from Tel Aviv, Israel!
This is my fourth and last year playing for University of Maryland, and the fall has almost come to an end. Four players on the team – Arnelle, Millie, Eva, and I – will be traveling to the University of Kansas this upcoming weekend for a highly competitive tournament. We all have been practicing hard and improving our game since our great success at regionals, and we are ready to fight and bring back great results!
I can’t repeat enough how much I love our school. It provided me with priceless opportunities to develop as a scholar, athlete, and a human-being. As a scholar, I have had the opportunity to try different disciplines before I chose accounting. Currently I am pursuing my Masters in Accounting with tax being my focus area. The business school has great faculty; it is a pleasure to sit in the classroom, listen, learn from, and interact with the professors.
As an athlete, I had the privilege of bringing my share to have the best season in program history last spring. We had a great season and are excited for what the spring has in store.
That being said, I hope you all come support us during the spring season when we battle our opponents at home. Let’s make this another historic season for our great school! I can’t stress enough how much your support means to us. After all, who is not excited to play for the crowd?!
