I hope everyone has been braving this crazy winter weather we have been having, makes me very happy that basketball is an indoor sport. Speaking of which this week continued our stanza in the second round of NEWMAC play with two games, one against Coast Guard on Wednesday and the other yesterday against Smith College. Unfortunately, both turned out to be hard and heartbreaking losses but to take a good situation out of the bad, we out-rebounded Smith College by 20 which is not nearly as sweet as a win but is definitely something to be commended for as it's a sign as to how hard the team played; and we certainly did.
In other news, on Friday night we went to go watch coach Nate play in his varsity basketball game where they got a big win. Giving the credit to our cheering section of 15 plus one very well decorated sign would be wrong, however, I like to think that we had some help in sparking the team. Coach Nate and his teammates played a great game and we had lots of fun as well, we look forward to hopefully making another game if we can.
What's next to come this week are two more conference games, one home against WPI on Wednesday and the other at Babson on Saturday. The game on Wednesday also happens to be our Pink Zone/ Play4Kay Cancer Awareness game. For more information on it and after reading the article if you so feel compelled to donate for the cause, I provided a link below:
The team will be sporting pink socks (the ones we wore in York if you saw the picture) and we encourage anyone who comes to cheer us on to wear as much pink as possible, it's going to be a great day! Well, seeing as tomorrow marks the first full week of classes, I unfortunately (but not in the least bit surprised) have homework to do. Until next time...
