My name is Leah (hope all of y’all know that by now haha.) So a lot of things have happened in the past two weeks as I’m sure you’re all aware! All the frosh got moved into our dorms which was very tiring but also rewarding because all our rooms are absolutely adorable.(: Here are a few pics of mine if you haven’t seen it yet!
After we got settled in, practices got started up. I’m not going to lie- I would’ve been completely lost if our wonderful coaches hadn’t made each of us very handy dandy binders with schedules of the preseason weeks lying ahead of us already planned out. Knowing where we were supposed to be at every time of the day definitely created a great structure for the frosh to get accustomed to which will hopefully prepare us for the “college experience,” as the kids call it nowadays.
The first few days were definitely tough as we all got back in the swing of things, but the D-Hall Captain Crunch, Matty Bobby’s treatments, and our required naps helped to keep us going. We did all kinds of fun things like swimming workouts (pic below) and yoga sessions.
We’ve met a lot of great friends and have seen it all (like the freshmen field hockey girls piercing their ears in the Gaines Game Room…not the move). Then we got all dolled up for our headshots! Here’s a pic of me and fellow frosh Brynne looking very excited to be repping Generals Blue!
We finished this day with a wonderful dinner at Coach’s house full of great food and even better company. The next morning was our first and last official scrimmage before our annual Blue and White scrimmage. We played 4 very competitive sets and both sides pulled out 2 of the 4 victories. Here’s some great action shots caught by the lovely Taylor Gibson:
Throughout the rest of the week- we laughed, we cried (well only Ash but we’ll let that one go hahaha), and we really bonded as a team. Every year, the frosh are in charge of performing a skit for the rest of the team- and I’m just gonna go ahead and say it- 2017 Frosh were by far the best performers I think this team, and maybe even this school, has ever seen. If you click through the slideshow below you’ll see some lovely snapshots of our puppet show and dance practice for our great performance. If you want to see the full video you can shoot me a text and I’ll be happy to send it to you! (407)-718-4881.
And now it was Blue and White Scrimmage Day!!!!!!! I must say it was QUITE the match. It was a nail biter 5 setter with a 15-10 finish (GO WHITE!!!!!) Let me tell you- there was sweat, there was blood, there was bruising (peep the seal dive bruise)
but most importantly- there was victory for everyone! I’m gonna go out on a limb and say we all got MORE than 1% better! Peep the team photos:
What a good looking squad amiright? The day finished with a little team bonding at Viq’s house and all of our lovely little heads hitting our pillows hard after a hard first week of preseason. Well, that’s all I’ve got folks! Stay tuned to see what happens as we enter into our first 2 weeks of matches!!!!!
Much love, Many laughs, and as always, Go Gennies.
