Hey Terp Fans!
It's been another great week here in Terpland, and it has flown by once again. We had a hard week in the gym with starting to put full routines together, but our team came together and conquered the challenge. We had less practice this week which means we worked extra hard in the gym!
On Wednesday, we had off of practice to participate in the women's fair to help promote our Pink Meet coming up in February. The gymnastics team is joining with the Greek Life to raise money for breast cancer. It was amazing to see people come out and support us. We were selling t-shirts for the meet as well as giving out candy and free water bottles! The meet is on February 18, and everyone should come out and support such a great cause!
On Friday, we had a fun day with the team! We had off of practice once again to do a team building ropes course. Now that we are starting to come together as a team in the gym, it is imperative that we can continue to communicate and work together. With the ropes course it really put our teamwork to the test! The first task was to get all 16-team members on a large-scale teeter-totter without either of the sides tipping onto the ground. The first try we were able to succeed! It was amazing to see everyone work together and achieve something that at first seemed impossible! Our next task was to complete a cube out of rods that could stand by its self! After it becomes free standing eight people had to crawl through it without it falling! Personally, I am no engineer, but something I am good at is being small which helped me crawl through! It was very cool to see everyone take on different roles to get the job done. Our last activity was a huge rock-climbing course! Even though this was not a team activity it was so great to hear the whole team cheering each other on to get to the top! To finally get all the way to the top and stand up I felt like I was on top of the world. It made me realize that this team has so much potential and if we keep working hard and pushing through together we can finally be able to all stand on top of the world together as a team.
On Sunday,we had our annual Halloween lift. All of the girls dressed up in different costumes, as well as the coaches and even our trainer Mike! We had some ghosts, surfer bro's, beanie babies, mime's, and an eighties workout queen! It was a fun way to finish off the week!
So another week is about to begin, and I feel like it is going to be a good one! The Terps are going to keep working hard so we can show everyone what we got! Have a great week!
