Spring Season has been awesome! I had heard a lot of good things about it from the upperclassmen, but now I know exactly what they were talking about. Spring season is fantastic because A) it means we get to get back to playing volleyball (yay), B) really focus on honing certain technical skills and try new things, and C) we get SWOLL in the weight room. It’s been so cool seeing all of our hard work we put in in the weight room and conditioning workouts transfer to our play on the court now. Unfortunately, we only have 3 more spring practices with coaches and it flew by way too fast. :( However, we really took advantage of the 16 practices we were allotted to grow as individuals and as a team and I can’t wait for next season when we’ll see all of this hard work in full motion!
Besides volleyball, spring also brings a lot of other super cool things. First of all, I am definitely a HUGE fan of the weather that has arrived in Lex. Winter was exciting with all the snow, but the 60 and 70-degree weather we’ve been having is perfect. Along with weather, spring brings exciting activities, like fraternity and sorority formals, Fancy Dress (which is this weekend!!), and extra time to hang out with friends :)
Last weekend for example, Lauren and I attended a fraternity formal together in Charlottesville and I also went out to sushi/a movie(“Insurgent”-which rocked) with Kenzie and Cudi on Saturday in town. So, without being in the gym everyday with each other and travelling to matches most weekends, we definitely find ways to still hang out and have fun.
But anyways, formal and a night out on the town were definitely a great time and allowed me to take my mind off of classes for a while. We only have four more weeks of winter term and life is getting pretty busy (I also start giving tours for the school this Friday so that should be fun!). can’t wait to see what Spring Term brings soon, though– I’ve heard sooo many good things about it!
I also can’t wait for my first Fancy Dress this weekend!! Ahhh I looveee spring! :)
