GNAC Champions...oops we did it again


The semis and the final of the Great Northeast Athletic Conference were this weekend. We played Johnson and Wales on Saturday, and beat them to finally reach the final against Emerson College.

The season was really tough this year, having to go to practice on sunday mornings, taking tests early because of games, or even representing Simmons College at the New England Womens' Invitational tennis tournament.

I personnally played my hardest match of the season on sunday, as well. I lost the first set 2-6,and was led in the second 1-4 to finally win the second set 6-4 and the tie breaker 11-9. After keeping a tough mental focus for 2.5 hours, the win felt great!

I just wished my family could have been there. It gets sad sometimes to see everyone's parents come down and cheer for their children when you are just there trying to picture your mom and your dad and brothers and sisters cheering for you behind the fence. I felt alone on sunday despite my team being there, so I dedicated my tough win to my family. I MISS THEM SO MUCH!!

But, on a happier note, the Simmons tennis team will be going to the nationals in the spring. YAYYYY!!!!
