It's great to be back at Simmons College! Although classes only sort of started a few days ago, I have been here since the middle of August for the volleyball preseason! We have awesome new coaches this year, Coach Vicarri and Assistant Coach Caitlin! They know what they're doing and they have so much confidence in our team. With a great team effort, we're off to a good start so far in the season going 9:2 and 2:0 in the GNAC Conference.
It wasn't until the other day when I talked to my coach that I realized that I didn't really describe myself as an athlete. I mean, isn't that just weird? I play a sport, but for some reason, it's not the first word that I use to describe myself. After having that conversation with Coach, I think it's time that I start thinking like an athlete and eat healthy and train more in addition to our practices. I just need to be more confident in myself.
Speaking of confidence, this past weekend, our volleyball team played two matches against two NEWMAC conference volleyball teams (their conference is more competitive than the GNAC) and we won our match to Clark University! What a great confidence booster for our team!
I'm excited to grow as an athlete and person with my volleyball team this season and hopefully I can even become mentally tough, let go of mistakes I make on the court, and just play volleyball! I love my team! :)
