College Squash Team Nationals Recap

I really can’t believe it’s already Thursday. This week has gone by so incredibly fast and I feel as though I have barely had a moment to catch my breath. Don’t get me wrong- I love it when life is fast paced… it makes it exciting! However, it can get quite overwhelming at times, and it can be difficult to balance commitments from different areas of life! (So basically, I apologize for the brevity and possible incompleteness of this post).

That being said, let’s back up quickly to this past weekend, where I was up in Cambridge with my team for the College Squash Association Intercollegiate Nationals tournament! Aka “Nationals”.

Friday

We played Yale in the first round and won 6-3. A solid effort all around from every teammate, which set us up nicely for the semifinals.

Also, every morning started off with oatmeal, banana, and tons of peanut butter. Breakfast of champions, I tell you.

Saturday

We lost to Harvard in the semifinals 5-4. A close, tough loss, but most definitely hard fought.

Plus, we had heart-shaped cookies sent to us from my grandmother to cheer us up!

Sunday

We beat Penn 5-4 in the 3/4 playoff, and then booked it back to campus, arriving in Princeton around 11:30 pm. It’s safe to say that I have been playing catch up on work ever since, all while trying to continue squash training for the individual tournament which occurs in a week!

Alrighty, I left out about 70% of the weekend’s activities, but sadly sleep, squash, and school are taking priority over blogging this week.

Time to get to class!
