It’s that time of year again, basketball season is just right around the corner. We started official practice on October 15th and we have our first scrimmage on November 14. I love this time of year because it is so crucial to a team’s success during the season. This is when the foundations are laid for trust and teamwork, and the pieces of the puzzle start to come together. My high school team will be very different from last year. We lost 3 starters who all went on to play Division 1 basketball, so we will look and play much differently. I’m really excited about the group of girls we have this year! I think we will surprise a lot of people with how well we can play together. We have great chemistry and several young, talented players that will contribute a lot! We have another scrimmage on November 21st before our first game on December 4th.
I took my official visit to Notre Dame on October 16-18. It was a great visit! My future classmate, Jackie Young, was also there. We were able to watch 2 practices as well as tailgate and go to the ND vs. USC football game. The atmosphere on campus during a football weekend is always an amazing experience! It was a great feeling being able to take my official after having already committed. I was able to enjoy the weekend without having to worry about making my college decision!
In what little time I have between basketball and school, I usually spend it hanging out with friends and watching football. I enjoy watching college football (mostly ND) and my family is big Pittsburgh Steelers fans. My youngest brother, Cutter, also plays in a youth football league that I love to watch! Something exciting that I have coming up is signing day. I plan on signing with Notre Dame on November 11th at my high school. My teammate, Rachel Warden, is also signing that day with the University of Tampa. I can’t wait to share that experience with her as well as my friends and family!
Until next time…
