The Countdown To Game Day

Cattaraugus County Campus basketball team

Hello, readers! I have missed the last few weeks with my blogging. Hours and days fly by with how busy the week becomes, and we all have to keep up to date with our school work, right?

Training is getting intense, especially as we head toward our opening game on November 5! We’ve been cramming in plays, sets, positions, and rules. It amazes me that my mind hasn’t forgotten it all yet! It’s so much fun and I wouldn’t change a thing. For so long living the college life was a dream of mine, and now I am doing it – school and sports while studying abroad.

We have seven days until game day! Coach keeps reminding us that once the season starts, everything gets crazy quickly, so I am hoping that I am as prepared as I can be for what’s to come. Seven days for some last-minute training, seven days to make sure I stay up to date with all my classes, seven days to hone my game, seven days and my dream of playing on a college basketball team will be fulfilled. It’s funny to think about how much can happen in just seven days. I’m excited to see what my seven days have in store for me, and I’ll keep you all posted!
