Graduating in 3 Weeks!

Hi Guys and Gals!

I haven't posted for a while. So here is just a quick update on my life from the past few weeks!

Golf has been going great for us as a team. After we came back from our first event we traveled to Carbondale Illinois to play a NCAA Division 1 tournament. We played against all D1 teams and lost in a playoff to IUPUI. Pretty impressive for a small NAIA School!

For Spring Break we went to Orlando with the Men's golf team. This week was by far my best Spring Break tournament ever. We stayed at the Mission Inn Resort and played fabulous golf courses for the week we were there. We bonded as a team and of course made the most of our time in Florida. The Women's team won and it made our 20 hour bus ride a little easier. 😛

After Spring Break, I played my last ever home tournament. How SAD!! This was tearful and awesome because I got to play with my best friend on the second day who is also a fellow senior, Alejandra.

NOW we are back on campus. We don't play again until our conference which is in two weeks!

My Cap and gown have arrived, and my parents have booked their flights to see me graduate!

Exciting times are ahead and time is flying by too quick for my liking.

Oh, and did you know our team is number 1 nationally?

Enjoy your week!

Catch, Throw, Hit, and Run

Happy Spring Semester to all! All the students have returned to William Woods and we are delving into our new course schedule during the first week of classes! Stress runs high but there is no better way to blow off some steam than to head to baseball practice! That's right, the beginning of spring semester marks the beginning of baseball and softball season! The Owls Softball and Baseball teams are both coming off of highly successful seasons after both made a trip to the National Tournament in 2014. The opening day of the Owls Baseball season is February 6th in Tennessee. Preseason polls have the Owls Baseball team ranked number 25 in the United States in the NAIA, and the Owls Softball team at number 19! We will keep working hard to uphold the principles of integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship, and servant leadership while we prepare for our competition and throughout the season. Best of luck to all spring sports and as always, Go Owls!
