Kickin' It With The Women's Soccer Team (Aug. 20, 2009)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Hello. This is Courtney Curby, a senior on the St. John's women's soccer team. Today officially marks nine days of preseason, but if you ask any of the girls on the team they will say it feels like we've been here for weeks.  Since we have multiple practices or meetings in one day, it becomes very hard to keep track of days.

The current heat wave here definitely contributes to making everything a haze in my mind.  It seems that summer has saved all its scorching temperatures for our preseason.  Luckily, we've been doing many concentration activities and breathing exercises to keep us focused on our tasks.  Amidst all the challenges that preseason presents, the entire team has kept a great attitude.  More than ever I feel our team is playing together as one unit.  

On Monday, we had an exhibition game against Stony Brook at home.  It felt so good to be back playing a game at Belson under the lights.  Our team definitely gets a rush from that feeling.  We tied 0-0, which was probably not the result we would've liked, but we were happy with our defensive play as a team, considering that's what we have been concentrating on most.  From there, we continue moving forward.  This season there is no looking back.
