Golf Madness

My golf season has finally started! The top 7 golfers went on a little road trip to St. Joseph, Missouri to compete in a D2 golf tournament. We were the only NAIA school there, and we dominated all of the NCAA D2’s and D3’s! Isn't that awesome? What a great feeling to have. It was our first event of the season, so we were a little rusty, but we still managed to win.

As always, there are plenty of pros and hardly any cons whenever we travel!

So here we go, I am going to brag to you a little bit about my trip…

  1. 2 to a Room!

We stayed in the Holiday Inn Express and the hotel accidentally overbooked so we had 2 people to a room, this meant a bed each and just pure bliss for the two nights we stayed there!

  1. Chipotle First Night!

As you already know, I have an obsession with Chipotle. My coach obviously knows this after putting up with me for nearly 4 years, so we happened to be so lucky to be staying right next to Chipotle, and I had it two nights in a row. DON’T JUDGE!

  1. Best Friend Visit!

One of my best friends, Joni, who recently graduated from William Woods has just landed herself a job in St. Joe. Joni came to surprise me one night, so we caught up and just watched some TV! It made my week!

  1. We WON!

William Woods had 4 women who finished top 10 and the team won by many shots against D2's Lindenwood and Missouri-Western! It was a great start to our season, and we have a lot of work to do to win the National Championship!

I can't wait for our next event in Carbondale Illinois, we play a D1 school! Let's hope we can dominate this one, too!

How Time Flies!

Oh EM GEE… It's the middle of February, and my golf season starts in 3 weeks! Yikes!

Over the last six weeks, I have been super busy with school, my internship, and golf! I've kept myself busy with three main things, and a bonus activity or two. Just like in high school, spring semester in college is crazy busy!

  1. School - as you already know it's my senior semester, and to be honest it is pretty chilled. I'm taking 12 credits including an internship. However three classes are English, and they sure keep me busy.
  2. Internship - I am lucky enough to intern on campus with Travis, the sports information director. It works so well with my major, and I am loving it so far. It takes up my boring Tuesday and Thursday nights and time flies by.
  3. Golf - we all know what Missouri weather is like-bipolar to the max. Golf has been up and down just like the weather. Sometimes we go out to play or sometimes we are stuck indoors. However everyone is getting back into it and we are ready to compete.
  4. Food Trips to Columbia - my teammate and good friend Alex Bankovich and I have made at least 8 Chipotle trips so far this semester, thrown in with some Olive Garden and Andy's Frozen Custard. Yep, I said it--Andy's in freezing weather. Columbia is only 25-30 minutes away, so whenever we are craving some fattening food that isn't available in Fulton, we just hop right in the car!
  5. Tanning - it's about that time of year when I buy a monthly tanning package from Fulton’s Tanfastic salon. So 20 minutes before or after eating at Tucker Dining Hall, I pop right there to keep my bronze colour going in the winter.

There are plenty more fun things going on around campus at this time and before we know it, it will be May! Happy February, guys!
