Hello and Happy Father’s Day to everyone reading this, but especially to the dads! Shout out to my awesome dad who is my biggest supporter 🙂 My name is Courtney Berry and I’m one of six freshmen who will be coming to W&L in the fall. I’m a middle hitter from Charlottesville, VA, so not too far from Lexington, and I’m so excited to be a General!
Since not a lot is happening in regards to practices or games, I’ve decided to update you all on my summer so you can get to know me better! For the past two weeks and until the end of June I am nannying for my neighbors 10 hours a day — it’s a lot! There are three girls, 1, 4, and 7 years old, and I have changed more diapers in the past two weeks than I have in my entire life. They’re pretty darn cute and we’ve had some fun adventures including the playground and peach picking.
On the weekends I’ve been chilling with friends at Smith Mountain Lake, listening to country music, and doing some reading. I have been reading The Art of Mental Training, which is a book that the whole team is reading together to improve our mental toughness on the court. It has definitely been an interesting read so far and I hope to put the mental skills to use this fall! Otherwise my time has been spent hanging out with friends and working out. We have a workout program that Coach gave us to do over the summer, and it has felt great to work hard to get stronger! I’ve been playing sand volleyball with friends, as well as binge watching the Bachelorette, my guilty pleasure.
During the month of July I will be counseling at camp for a month and then off to W&L for preseason! I can’t wait! Have a great rest of your Father’s Day!
