Hey there Lion fans!
Your Lady Lions had a tough weekend. We traveled up to the Pacific Northwest to play Gonzaga and Portland, but unfortunately fell short in both matches. I would have to say now that I have done this trip twice it is definitely the most difficult. Jumping from plane to plane and having to play indoors is tough. We were all pretty disappointed in the results, but we are going to continue to move forward because we're not done yet!
Even though we did not do the best, the team had a really good chance to bond. I thought this was very important because we are in a very crucial part of the season right now, and even during these tough times it's amazing a team is still able to bond like this team is. I've watched this team show tremendous progress and grow this year. Not only individually, but as a team. When we beat St. Mary's last weekend there was so much emotion because we all felt that "we did it" moment. When we had a couple of tough losses this past weekend we were upset together, but still kept each other's heads up. We have all learned to accept the tough losses and to embrace the good wins. That is really hard for a team to do especially in such an individual sport like this one.
Despite our rough weekend, we are continuing to move forward because we have another busy weekend ahead! We are back on our home turf this weekend playing Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This weekend is going to be extra special because Sunday is our senior day! That's right we are already playing our last home matches of the season! Crazy how time flies! We would really appreciate it if some of you guys come out on Friday, Saturday or especially Sunday to support Kristine, Andy and Ellie as they play their very last home match! I know they would really love and appreciate your support!
We start the weekend off playing University of San Diego on Friday, BYU on Saturday and the Oregon Ducks on Senior Day Sunday!
That's all for now tennis fans!
