Hey Terps Fans!
What a crazy fun month September has been. I cannot believe it is just about October, boy does time fly when you are having fun! This week was full of fun stuff, but especially the weekend. This weekend was recruiting weekend and it was definitely one of the best yet! First, on Friday we had a shortened practice as well as a shortened spin!! Every once in a while Brett will do his "Make a Deal" with us. This past Friday he "made a deal" with the freshman. Each of them had to perform certain skills under pressure on first tries, or do skills for the first time and if they did 30 minutes would get knocked off our spin time to give us an extra half hour to get pretty for our recruit dinner. I want to give a huge shout out to each one of them, Karen Tang, Katy Dodds, Elizabethe Manzi, Jessie Black and Ebony Walters who all showed us what they are made of when put under pressure! Thank you guys! As I mentioned we had to get pretty for our recruiting dinner. Every year we take a trip to Baltimore's Inner Harbor for dinner. Everyone looked absolutely beautiful and we all enjoyed a spectacular meal.
The fun continued on Saturday as well. Our agenda consisted of a tailgate before the football game, the football game against Florida International, and to end the night a Jersey Shore party. We were blessed with warm weather that was even too warm for most of us to handle. This football game was also the Student Athlete Honor game, where all athletes with a GPA of 3.0 or higher were honored and got to walk across the field at halftime. After the game everyone returned back to their place to shower and get ready for the awesome Jersey Shore party. We had pizza, dressed like characters from the show and played Pauly D's music, and took a trip to Rita's Italian Ice.
This morning it was sad to say goodbye to all of the girls
because we had such a blast with them all weekend. The weekend added with a
great touch because this week there is NO BOOTCAMP! It is a great opportunity
for everyone to get some extra rest, caught up with school work, and push extra
hard in the gym to get some more super duper gymnastics done! I cannot wait to
see what this team puts together in the gym this week when we are all fresh and
ready to go. We looked fabulous while sore and tired I am almost scared to see
the "fire" we bring this week. None the less we will be RELENTLESS through it
all! Have a wonderful and blessed week everyone! Thanks for reading!
