Hey there Lion fans!
Your Lady Lions had a very successful weekend on the road! We won both our away matches against University of San Diego and BYU. These were awesome matches to win because we had some unfortunate injuries and sicknesses that kept a few of us out this past weekend. We actually ended up going to BYU with only 5 players and still pulled out the W and made the conference tournament. I was so happy I was on that trip because it was such a spectacular match to be a part of. Having to forfeit a doubles team and a singles point is really tough to come back from. Our No.2 doubles team had never even played a dual match together before and they competed so well. Elvira and I ended up winning our doubles match as well and we started off the match strong by clinching the doubles point. We ended up killing it singles bringing the overall score to 4-1.
This was an awesome trip to be a part of because it shows what a strong team we really are. The five of us who competed understood we had some unfortunate events thrown our way and we just accepted it and went out and competed our hardest. Even though there were only 5 of us out there we still felt the support from the ones back home who could not play. They felt terrible they could not compete with us, but we still felt so much support from them. This was a real test for us to show how tough we really are and how hard we have been working. I was so proud on how we all pulled together and competed our hardest. Even at an away match in high altitude, we were still able to play tough and it really sets a tone going into our last two matches this weekend at home and the conference tournament next week.
We have our last two home matches this Friday and Saturday against Gonzaga and Portland, which means this Saturday is our senior day. I can't believe the time has come that I am going to play my last home match ever, but I could not be more excited to compete at home this weekend. Julia and I would really appreciate whoever can make it out and watch us compete at home one last time. We play Friday at 1pm and Saturday at 11am.
