Beginning of an End

Our soccer season unfortunately ended Friday. We lost in the semi-finals to Eastern Michigan University 2-0. We played horribly and it was a poor game for us. On paper, we were the best team in the MAC by far. However, we didn't always show it on the field.

It's always sad to end our fall season. Road trips are always a blast. They literally only consist of bus rides, eating, sleeping and soccer. That's it. Occasionally you have to throw homework in the mix, but you always find time to finish it after you get back to Mt. Pleasant.

The season overall is a blast. Practices only concentrate on things you need to do in the upcoming games. There is no fitness or ball work. It's just more fun.

Now our spring season begins. We don't get a break like you probably think. We ended Friday and we had practice this morning. We will practice Monday through Thursday until Christmas break and then we will start up again, beginning with a fitness test (the Gauntlet to be exact). YUCK!

But if you want to read more about some of the things that go on within our team, go to Grand Central's website and read the blog posts I wrote. It's about things that happen off the field and our "inner-workings."

Also, I did come away from the MAC tournament with some good news. I managed to make the All-MAC tournament team with another one of my teammates, Val Prause. FIRE UP CHIPS! :)
