Hello fellow Wildcat Followers,
What a wonderful summer it has been. A couple of teammates and I had opportunities to work the Niya Butts Basketball Academy: No Butts About It camps. It was a good experience for us to get involved with young women that love and want to further their game in basketball. We coached teams, played games, demonstrated drills, and even were referees. It was a fun experience for the team to continue to bond together and also work with younger kids.
Besides working camps, this has been an eventful start to my summer. I'm enrolled in summer school and do daily workouts. The crew (U of A Women's Basketball Team) and I have been playing pickup to get better and in shape. We all have been working on our game (focusing on our weakness and improving in all areas). We are all excited for this upcoming 2010-2011 season because I know for a fact we will be a joy to watch. We have established a bond and we continue to grow as individuals.
I am excited about my senior year and what I know will be my best season yet both for myself and for the team. Coach Butts and the rest of the staff have recruited some great new players that are going to give us that boost to reach the next level, which we expect to be the NCAA Tournament!! Hope you're all having a great start to the summer.
