Only one more full week of summer before classes start! All of us freshmen are getting ready for move in day and the start of orientation this Friday! We are all really excited to finally get to school, meet everyone, and especially start practicing with the rest of the team. 🙂
The Tribe has been working really hard in the gym this summer, getting some new skills, and maintaing the rest, so that we can have a great start to official practices. Jenny and Lindsey have been training a lot in our home gym, and Jenny has been working very hard to upgrade her vault to a Hand Front Pike 1/2! Kristin was able to hit a full set on bars this week, which is really exciting! Maggie and Brandy have both been working really hard on beam: Brandy just learned a kick over front, and Maggie got a completely new 1 1/2 dismount. We have also had a lot of girls doing really well after coming back from some injuries. Carleigh was recently cleared to vault and tumble again, so she has started to flip some vaults and is doing all of her tumbling passes off of the rod floor. Allie’s back is getting much better and she was able to start tumbling this week for the first time all summer! Bree is also doing really well, she flipped vaults last week for the first time since her knee surgery!
As for me, I’ve been working really hard in the gym, and just enjoying my last little bit of time at home. I can’t believe the summer is almost over, but I am really excited to join the rest of the team at W&M! I hope everyone is having a great end to their summer as well!
