Starting off the second half of conference play with one win and one loss is not the way our team expected it to be. After losing two in a row in conference to FGCU and UNF we got back on track with a very good win on the road at Jacksonville and at home vs. ETSU. As a team we’ve realized that we have to take our losses and learn from our mistakes and get better in those areas as a team. No matter what happened we cannot lose sight of why we’ve put countless hours in the gym and in practice. After last year’s loss in the championship we do not want to have that same feeling, and having five seniors that have done great things everyone wants them to walk out of this program on a good note.
In my two years at Stetson I have had many great experiences; I’ve surrounded myself around a great group of girls that have become my family away from my family. We are always around each other and we enjoy hanging out as a team and doing team activities. Being so close off the court correlates to our chemistry on the court and makes it easier to play as a team because we know we have each other’s backs. Throughout the year we have accomplished many great things and we couldn’t have done those things without each other.
This month is a very special time of the season as the second half of conference play is underway. February is also the month where we show our support for breast cancer awareness. This month is very special to me personally because I’ve lost someone who had a huge impact on my life due to breast cancer. She was a very close family friend but blood couldn’t make us any closer. She was there for me for as long as I can remember and she was a like a second mom to me. When I got the news that she lost her fight against breast cancer it broke my heart, and I remember that day like it was yesterday. This is the time of the season that I look forward to show my support for finding a cure for breast cancer in memory of my Aunt.
