Update from Nationals! – July 28

Hey Bloggers!

As you know we played our first game last night against the PDA Tsunami from New Jersey. Just to give you the setting it was 8:00pm, the sun had just lowered behind the mountains, the temperature was 102 degrees and the air was still. We began with an international start, which just means that both teams walk out together and line up to wave to their fans. There were four games all commencing at the same time so all of the players, coaches and fans in the complex turned toward a waving American flag for the national anthem! Hearing that powerful song and looking around at everyone, eyes locked on the flag, was really incredible!

Then we huddled together for a cheer and took the field. It was a long hard fought game from both teams but… WE WON!!! 🙂 WOOT WOOT! We defeated them 1-0. Our goal came with four minutes left in the game from our speedy outside midfielder Cassie (she is from the Real side of the team and is currently playing for Gonzaga!) She beat a player on the left sideline and then cracked a sick, left-footed shot to lead us to victory! 🙂 We left the fields and returned to our resort for some salad and chocolate milk, yummy! Then some girls did a relaxing cool down in the pool and others braved the dreaded ice bath! Now we repeat yesterday’s glorious routine! 🙂

 Until later, stay cool… And we’ll try to also!


At 9:50 on Thursday it is 93 degrees here!
