Hey Terp Fans!
It's been a great first week here and it's so exciting to be back with the whole team!
We've had a lot of meetings and assemblies this past week and we're getting everything set for a great year! Classes started on Wednesday, and aside from a few freshmen getting lost on campus, everything is going smoothly.
On Friday a bunch of us went to support our fellow Terps at the men's soccer game against Stanford. It was an exciting game and the stadium was packed full of fans. We won the game 4-0 and also scored the first goal in the first minute of the game!
We've also been to a few of the women's volleyball games. As a team we help shag balls at these games and it's a great way to see other athletes in action. While we're great gymnasts, some of us are not as coordinated in other areas and a few of us got hit in the head with volleyballs! However, we still had a good time and our team won all three of their games.
On Sunday we had our first day of boot camp. We're excited to have Mike as our new lifting coach and he brings a lot of great energy that will help us get the most out of our workouts with him. We went over some exercises in the weight room then we headed to the indoor stadium for our running circuit. The workout consisted of strength exercises as well as sprinting, and although it was tough, we got through it as a team and finished strong! It was great to see the enthusiasm and togetherness our team had this early on, and I'm excited to see what the next few weeks will bring!
After boot camp we all had dinner together then went over to a dorm and played games! It was a great way to get to know each other better and start team bonding. We had a lot of fun together, especially playing charades! Our team is getting along great already outside of the gym and I can't wait to see what we can do in the gym!
Thanks for reading! Go Terps!
