The basketball season is ending, with a huge improvement in my ‘no-hesitation’ goal! While it was fun, I am glad to not have as many activities. With Cyber Patriot, Sea Cadets, and rec lacrosse as well, my schedule has been crazy!
Today was insane. Sand cookies (jumping in the water and rolling around in the sand) wore me out… it was great. Then I had my basketball game, and I didn’t get to take a shower or anything before going to it, sooooooo my hair looked like it was straw glued to my head with lice (or whatever the parents thought the sand was) in my hair… I was laughing so hard . Then I got to my rec lacrosse game halfway through, but it was still fun . I mean, it’s lacrosse!
And then there’s this…
I can NOT wait for this upcoming summer! SO MUCH LACROSSE AHEAD!!!!!!!!!! Sky Walkers, lacrosse camp, and national tryouts.
Here is an update for the Goose Sports main website:
I am currently in web design class, where I am learning HTML, CSS, and other programming languages needed for a great website! Hopefully, I will have a new, improved, and AWESOME website by 2015. Also, I am currently talking with the Director of Marketing and Development at Pace Brantley School, and she has some great design feedback for my website as well! Hope everyone likes it when I am finished with the final product! Have a nice rest of the weekend!!
Lacrosse is great! Champion Challenge was a big hit, and I hope to get it published in Lacrosse Magazine again! Also, yhe rec season is about to start games, and I can NOT wait for the summer, when I will travel to Baltimore to play with Sky Walkers… can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait, CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!
Basketball is, as coach Michael said, helping me – the only drawback is that some of my teammates and opponents think I’ve got some mental issues, as I’ve tried to cradle the basketball a few times… let me just tell you, it doesn’t work quite how it does in lacrosse; at least I haven’t hit anyone in the face yet with that issue! ;P
USA v. UNC x2!
The first game was extremely action-packed, and was recorded for ESPN3. USA won in sudden death OT after an intense shot-after-shot war, so fast the ball would change possession or fly in the goal before I could finish my tweets. …Don’t forget the girls screaming: “GO OOSAH!!” (Oosah meaning USA with a funny twist). We call them the ‘gaggle.’ (Pic below.) They know how to cheer on a team! They were yelling out names, USA, and just screaming in general; it was awesome . It was a GREAT weekend for women’s lacrosse and an inspiring weekend for girls all over Florida!!
Yesterday was a ton of fun! Coach Fried let me have a picture with team USA, and I saw Coach Levy (UNC head coach) again; her daughter even attended the clinic! I also met Cookie, a former SkyWalker, UNC player, and current assistant coach of the University of Delaware, who now plays for team USA.
After the clinic, Kathleen and I went and watched the Maryland v USA game; she was my photographer. J While she took awesome pictures of the game, I recorded the scores and some key things that happened; it was so cool! She took a lot of great action pictures of all the amazing players!
It’s a freezing night in Florida… well more like a Floridian’s version of cold, as it is 50°, while Duke Winter Lacrosse Camp was probably in the 30s with intense wind… yeah, us Florida martians are soooo tough.
The Stetson v Syracuse game was… uh… interesting, considering Syracuse won 24-0, even after putting in their freshmen line. In addition, I had the privilege of speaking with the parents of freshmen players #42 and #35 (Syracuse), which was super cool! They explained to me how grades are worth so much more than one might assume.
Coach Fried (head coach of Team USA and Georgetown Hoyas) was nice enough to allow me to come over tomorrow morning for a picture with Team USA! So cool!
I am so excited for all of the upcoming events!! This weekend I get to play with my friend’s private school team, but here’s the best part: I get to play against MY high school team! Then, there is Champion Challenge the weekend after, which I have already expressed my excitement for! Can’t wait for either of these!!!!! It will be so much fun! As said prior, hope to see some of you at both!
Champion Challenge is almost here! Team USA just released an email letting everyone know that they are coming! Go USA!!Many of you know that I will be getting a press pass and will be able to write an article from behind the scenes! I look forward to writing an article about Champion Challenge! Hope to see some of you there!!
This winter I went to Duke camp – It was so much fun!!!! We did stations with Division I coaches, scrimmaged, and learn tons of stuff! One of the stations we went to was with the assistant coach of Georgetown, who formerly coached at UF, where we learned how to set proper pics and screens. We also learned how to use the rotate the crease and use it to our advantages!
I had a lot of fun doing wall ball as well – trying out crazy one-handed passes – and playing around with funky stick tricks on the last day!
While it was cold – no, make that freezing – at times, I had a GREAT time! Thanks to all of the coaches that helped out to make it a blast!!!!
So excited for Merry Madness on December 23!! It is going to be a 3v3 mini tournament/play day event and I can NOT wait to kick butt!
