We've started the second week of practice. We now only have 11 more practices until our first exhibition game! I can't believe how fast the season has came. Practices are going good and everyone is working hard.
Homecoming was great this past weekend! On Friday, Maggie's parents came into town and grilled out for all of us. It was a great meal and a lot of fun to sit around and just hang out as a team. On Saturday, most of us met up and were able to sit together at the game. The stadium was packed and it was a lot of fun to be apart of it all!
For the next two weeks, we will be missing Christine. She will be in Mexico representing the US at the Pan-America Games. Our team is so proud of her! It already sounds like she is having a great time and really enjoying her experience.
On Monday evening, the MU Athletic Department held a Women for Women event. We met at the Sells Dining Hall in the MATC and listened for about an hour about how we can empower ourselves. It was a great event! It was very informative and I feel like it really brought all of the MU female athletes together. One of the speakers said that as a female athlete here, we have not only the sisters on our team, but 200 sisters that make up all of the female athletes. That's a pretty cool feeling; knowing that there's 200 girls that care and will have one another's backs. We're truly lucky to have such a huge and loving family.
Peace, Love and Basketball.
