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!

AR-Kansas?!

I sat with Jodie in the cart on our practice round in Arkansas!

This is my first post. You may want to check out my bio before reading.

It has been such a fun and exciting past few days with the women’s golf team; we went to our last tournament of the season. Coming from the United Kingdom, going on a US road trip fascinates me. We went to Arkansas, which started off the subject, how do you actually say Arkansas? With a team full of British, 1 French and 1 American, this really was hysterical to listen and watch! All I kept hearing was “AR-KANSAS” in a British accent and “ Arkansaws” in a French accent. My dreaded 6-hour long journey to Jonesboro really wasn’t that bad. It is hard NOT to have fun on a long journey like that with the people you love and could laugh to ALL day long.

My eyes lit up when we stopped at Subway, this was my moment to indulge in a foot long flat bread, with a large soda and chips to go with it. We finally arrived there at the golf course, and the first thing we ALL do is ask for the WiFi password! I thought I had been lost from the world for days, not being able to use Snapchat, Facebook or any other social media that keeps me happy for only 6 hours! Anyway, everyone was happy and we had a great day practicing and finished off a hard days work with a juicy Chic-Fil-A, followed by Andy’s frozen custard from our Coach! I mean how else would you rather spend your Saturday? With your loving team and some loving food to go down with it!

Andy's finest Strawberry cheesecake concrete!

I spent 3 fun nights in a queen sized bed along with a nice cup of hot chocolate every night from the lobby in one of Jonesboro’s finest hotels. Our golf was terrific, I was nervous playing against ALL D1 schools, but the result was great. We came second to Arkansas State University and I placed third individually! My coach was overjoyed and overall we had a fun-filled and successful trip! Not to mention stopping off to Maid Rite in Rolla on the way home really put the icing on the cake!

Thanks for reading!
