I do apologize for the long delay with the blog. Things can get pretty hectic here during the season as far as basketball, school, and work. Hopefully I can update all of you followers and get you up to speed about what's been happening here at PUC since Brooklyn and I have disappeared and wrote on here last. I blame her as well for the delay though! ;)
We are currently sitting at a 10-4 record along with being 2-0 in the CCAC. We have continued to work hard in the gym day in and day out. The great thing about this year is that we are getting a good work out in EVERY day and smiling while we're doing it. I would hate to jinx us, but I can't remember the last time we had a bad practice. We have a great squad this year and we constantly push each other every day. This year we have a team and a chance to do big things.
In the national rankings a few weeks ago, we were getting national recognition and votes to be in the top 25. This is the first time since I have been here that this has happened. It's nice to see the work we've put in get a little credit. The objective has been to play teams from different areas to get recognition in other places rather than just in Northwest Indiana. We have played SEVERAL teams this year that have had dominant basketball programs in past years. Those are the teams we need to be playing to make ourselves better.
This week we have two tough teams coming to Hammond to give us a run before a few days off for Christmas. We play two great teams who have received votes to be nationally recognized in the past two vote sessions. These two games will really prove where we are as a team. As good ball teams, we have to respect them, but at the same time play to higher heights and show them how great we want to be this season. You never know what you're capable of until you do it and prove to yourself that you CAN.
Here goes another week of great basketball. I am halfway thru my senior year of school and basketball. It's an emotional rollercoaster, knowing that this is it, but I wouldn't want to spend the past 3 1/2 years anywhere else. I'll always be a peregrine.
Until next time ..
