All In All, A Great Freshman Season

on
We were really disappointed how we didn’t come out with an Atlantic 10 championship a week ago Sunday. We lost to Massachusetts in the final and we’re looking forward to coming back next year and getting another shot at them. I can’t believe how fast this year went by.

We lost to Towson 23-12 on Saturday, which was a rough game, even though I scored a goal. I hit the post three times — I don’t think I’ve ever hit the post that many times in a row. Maybe once or twice, but not three times. But today I want to talk about one […] [Read More]

Reflecting On My First College Win

Bouncing Back From Defeat

Since I last spoke to you we’ve played three more games against ranked ACC teams: Duke, North Carolina and Virginia, and lost all three. I felt like we played the same game three times in a row. It was so frustrating. Either we started off the first five minutes awfully and got strong, or started […] [Read More]
