Claire and I
Soooooo.... a lot has happened since my "New Beginning..." Blog.
I went to Baltimore and played in an Invitational Tournament at the Preakness, one of the 3 major horse races in America!!! It was so cool.
I played with Claire D'Amore. She did AWESOME! She played defense like a veteran and put the ball down with so much energy like a youngster should! ;) I t was great to get to know her better she is a really good girl and has a promising future!
Under Armour put all together for us and they were AMAZING hosts! We all got tons of gear, WHICH i have been wearing all the time since ;) and our players tent was full of delicious food and even a Smoothie corner with fresh fruits, yogurt, protein powder... Whatever you wanted, on demand! How some is this?
Ange and I back in the day! See how much fm she is?! :)
So now, the NEW PARTNERSHIP status...
Unfortunately, Carrie's knee isn't 100% as of right now. So she decided not to play in the next 3 tournaments and come back 100% sure that she is 100% ready! :) I also think this is a way better thing to do then coming back at 70% and then having an ongoing situation throughout the rest of the season!
Meanwhile, I got a new partner, or should I say and old partner back! ;)
ANGELA LEWIS! Reunited AGAIN!
For those who don't know, Angela and I played 4 seasons together (05-08) we grew as players and as women so much during that time! Together we climbed the rankings up to 9th in the nation without ever practicing together. I lived in Louisiana and she was here in Cali, so we accomplished what many couldn't while having their partners everyday at practices!
I am super excited, because not only her and I were always magical on the court, she has been always one of my bestest friends ever! So being able to travel with her again and see her everyday it's a treat to me!! I know we can do REALLY well, we have both improved soooooooooo much since a year and a half ago, plus our chemistry on the court... I CANNOT wait to step in Huntington and go to war with her!
This past weekend we went to Sun Valley in Idaho. It was Angela Lewis, Jenny Kropp, Meredith Miller (our strength trainer) and I. We went for an exhibition match at their charity event.
It was great, too bad our first flight was delayed so we missed the whole first day, but saturday we woke up, went have a great breakfast in town, then walked around and the girls did some shopping, went to a really cool gym/spa called Zenergy, then I joined the girls in some more shopping (Lulu Lemon stuff at 40% off, I couldn't resist!) :)
Then we went home, got ready and went to Sun Valley Resort for lunch and got ready for our match. Right when we were supposed to start, it starts raining and it never rains there!! How lucky are we?? hehehe
So we got to hang out inside of the main lodge, it was great to meet Ron Von Hagen (pic coming soon!) The whole thing was in honor of him! We also got to hang out with Sinjin Smith, who was kind enough to drive us 2 1/2 hours from Boise to Sun Valley! And was cool enough to tell us stories and play our car games with us, right Fonoles?? ;)
VIVO GS (Girls Sports) helped putting up the event, it is such a cool website for girls sports, bringing attention to all of the girls needs and helping them in every possible way you can think of! You should all check it out! :)
Meredith and I with Vivo scarfs, bc it got a little too cold there! :)
So for now this is it!
It's time for a lot of hard practices and workouts to be ready for Huntington this weekend!!
WHICH by the way, i want to see you all there to cheer us on!!! :) Positive energy and prayers are welcome too, and oh... be loud if you're there! WE LOVE IT! :)
