Hello W&L Volleyball Blog Fans and Readers!!!
Since this is my very first post, I feel it is only appropriate to start by introducing myself. My name is Elly Cosgrove and I’m from Wilmington, North Carolina. I will be an incoming freshman next year and I currently plan on majoring in journalism and mass communications (but honestly this could easily change). In the future, I’d like to either further my education by attending Law School, or pursue a career in broadcast journalism (once again… this isn’t written in stone).
Now I guess I should fill you in on what has been happening in my life recently in preparation for the big jump from high school to college! I’ve been on summer break for about a week now, but our actual commencement ceremony was just this past Saturday! I’m elated to be done with high school, but graduation was definitely a bittersweet day. Walking across the stage to receive my diploma was pretty great, but I couldn’t help but to reflect on all of the great memories that were made over the past four years. I feel truly blessed to have been surrounded by such great friends, family, mentors, teachers, and peers throughout my high school career.
Summer has treated me well so far! Wilmington is located on the coast of North Carolina, so I have been spending a lot of time at the beach and in the sun. Wrightsville Beach is a local beach that I spend some of my time at, but I spend most of my time on Masonboro Island. Wrightsville beach can be reached by car or by boat, but Masonboro Island can only be reached by boat (or any other form of water transportation). Due to its seclusion and the fact that it can only be reached by boat, Masonboro is a favorite spot for many of the locals. I plan on recovering from an extreme case of senioritis by spending my days fishing, flounder gigging, beach-lounging, working (yuck), boating, and swimming.
I would like to wrap things up by expressing how excited I am to be joining such a great group of girls in the fall. I absolutely can’t wait to be on campus for preseason! Maybe I will even see a few of you at camp next month. August 17th cannot come any sooner!
