Hey Wildcat Fans!
Wow, It certainly has been a LONG TIME since I talked to you last! I am formally apologizing for my hiatus, but I am happy to be back and tell you all the crazy things we have been up to this summer.
Where to start?! Well, it is the beginning of August, and you know what that means! Yes, we begin double day practices on Monday the 9th and the season starts just a few short weeks after that. What are double days you ask?! Well, for the next few weeks we will begin practicing twice a day, everyday, not including our weights sessions. We also get to eat at our favorite place, Rincon Market, so that makes us happy to get to this part of season but, I am getting way ahead of myself! I haven't caught you up since the end of Spring, so I guess I will take you back there...
Well the first half of the summer we all spent our days differently. Some people stayed in Tucson to take classes and train with our strength and conditioning coach (shout out to Jim Krumpos). Some people played on other volleyball teams, some went to camps, some went home and enjoyed time with families, some went on trips, and some spent their last few months as high school students. Everyone got a chance to have a little break from the chaos of school and volleyball before we all came back to grind out the last half of summer.
July marked the official return of everyone to Tucson. Our volleyball family grew immensely as we welcomed in all our new additions... Cursty, Tarryn, Maddie, Candace, Emily, and most recently Marketa. I know you will all love them as much as we do! We all began training with our strength coach again, working camps, and a few people also enrolled in class. It seemed like such a long month at the beginning, but now that it is gone I can't believe summer is over!
And now here we are. For a few of us we are beginning our final set of double days, while some of us are just beginning their careers as WILDCATS! No matter where everyone falls one thing is certain, we are SO EXCITED to begin this season and see all of our fans once again! I hope you are all as excited as we are!! We will be in the gym working hard everyday to make this season the best that it can be and we can't wait to see you all at our first game! Until next time, this is #34, signing out!
