The day we have all been waiting for since the end of November finally came!!! We are four days into preseason and life could not be more tiring or exciting. While I still can’t believe that I’m already a junior in college, it’s been great being back in Lexington. I studied abroad during Spring Term (I went to Paris for a history class while Kenzie took a photography class there too!), so I hadn’t seen most of my teammates since April. I really missed these weirdos.
The first few days of preseason have been amazing. We’ve had five full team practices, six ice baths, one pool workout, and countless amounts of PB trail mix. It’s been great hearing about everyone’s summers and reminiscing about previous years and inside jokes. We’re super busy, but our first game is in 10 days! Everyone is working hard to be ready. Our three new freshmen are doing an amazing job learning our system.
Today we had the day off, but even though we didn’t get out the ball carts, we still had a full day of meetings and recovery. Tomorrow we get back in the gym for a scrimmage. While coach can always come up with creative games and different ways of scoring, playing a regular six on six game is always a lot of fun. The only surprise tomorrow will be what our team names will be. But whether it’s Gryffindor vs. Slytherin or Grass-fed Cows vs. Free-range Chickens (not kidding, it’s happened), I’m sure the games will be very competitive.
(the Ellie count on the team is up to three now…)
