Day 2 @ Florida
The alarm went off way too early this morning 6 am to be exact. Per usual we all gathered in the kitchen and ate our cereal and drank our tea (not coffee like the other house). Since most of us were little lobsters after the first day of games, we learned our lessons and lathered up on the sunscreen!! Kate used the 100 spf and still managed to get burned. After we got dressed Alicia picked us up at the corner of the street, and we were off to play our first game of the day against Elizabethtown. Here is a picture of us warming up for the game; it was still a little chilly in the morning.
The bats were on fire for the start of the game, and the pitching of freshman Amanda Cordeiro led us to our first victory of the season!!!
For the second game our opponent was The College of New Jersey. This game was a battle from start to finish. We ended up going into the top 9th and with the score being 4-4. Unfortunately we were unable to pull away with the win. There were many positives that we took away from this game even though the score was not in our favor.
After a long morning of some great softball, player parted ways and went to lunch with their families or went back to the houses to relax. To welcome the newcomers to the team we held a family get together. Expecting a large crowd we ordered 16 pizzas. We met the family members or the newbies, and shared some great laughs. Coach was plotting to throw in our new assistant coach Jamie into the pool, but was not successful. Before this trip is over someone might be getting a little wet…
