August is moving right along, which means we will be back at it in no time! Although a couple of the girls are already moved in the dorms, official move-in day for the basketball players is on the 18th. The following day we get the opportunity to meet some of the other students and help them out with the moving process. Classes start up on the 22nd and conditioning starts soon after. It's hard to believe another year is already here, but I'm definitely looking forward to it!
Even though Coach gives us August "off" from open gyms, now is the time we all start to kick it into gear. We have to discipline and motivate ourselves so that when conditioning comes around, we don't have to get into shape, but stay in shape. Each player has to have made 15,000 shots this summer, and we are also going to be tested on our running and push-ups. This is a great way to keep us honest and make sure we have been working at it during the summer.
Although we will miss Jenny and MeMe, we have a great group of freshmen coming in. It's been a lot of fun to get to know the girls and play some basketball with them. We are looking to have a very solid team this year, and I'm very excited about the success that is soon to come our way. Stay tuned as we very shortly begin this journey. Go Peregrines!
