Times Up

Hi all,

As I'm sure most of you know, or maybe you didn't, this week was a huge week for Wheaton Women's Basketball in more ways than one. It was our final week which also meant that we had senior day on Saturday. We started off on the road against MIT where it happened to be their senior night too, unfortunately we were not able to pull out an upset that day and so we began preparing for our last game of the season on Saturday against Mt. Holyoke; and I'm more than happy to report that we got a huge true team win! The atmosphere was amazing, we had a great crowd, great support from family and friends, and the under-classmen did a fantastic job of decorating the gym. Here are some pictures:

Even the Lyon got some much deserved recognition!

This day truly was amazing and exceeded all of my expectations, and getting such an awesome win was a true testament to just how close this team has become and how much we all care about each other. There are honestly no words that I can put together to describe these past four years of playing collegiate basketball at Wheaton. The lessons I've been taught, that I've learned, and will forever take with me are beyond invaluable. The friendships that I have formed I plan on taking with me for many years to come, the laughs that will forever remain in my memory, and the sights, sounds, and smells that consume the sport I love will travel with me wherever I end up. I want to take this opportunity to thank my coaches, teammates, friends and loving family for all the support that they have given me, its been incredible. Although this is my last post, I will definitely be around for the next few years to cheer on my teammates as they pave a path to the NEWMAC championship; a feat that I have no doubt they will conquer. Thank you to all of you who have tuned in and took the time to read my blog and stay up to date with everything our team has done this year, although I'm not sure yet who will be the blogger next year I'm looking forward to reading theirs and staying up to date. Unfortunately, although basketball has ended school work hasn't so I'm off to finish the rest of my homework. Until next time...
