I am very excited about my journey to play for DCU Mercy on the Superleague team. We have had 3 pre-season games so far within the last 2 weeks. We practice 3-4 times a week, so my teammates and I have been putting in a lot of work and spent a lot of time in the gym getting ready for the season. So far, we have had 3 pre season games. Our first games were against Templeogue from Dublin (Morgan’s team, who is another Victory Scholar). It was great to see her and play against her because we will not play her this season. The next day we played Essex, and they were a team from London. They were a good team with a lot of experience. Our third game was against Glanmire in Cork Ireland this past Sunday afternoon. We play them twice during the season so it was good chance to play against a team we will face this season.
This past week I saw all of the Victory Scholars at the basketball drawings to decide our parings in the Cup this season. It was great to see all of the other scholars in their uniforms taking pictures and enjoying each others company. Most of the scholars have perviously seen each other in pre-season games and tournaments but it was great to get everyone together again. During the photoshoot, Ashley and I had to take pictures for our club team and we got to chose from different poses and have fun with what kind of poses we decided. Our first game is Saturday night vs Liffey Celtics who won the Superleague Cup last year. I am very excited to start our regular season games this weekend followed by college games during the week.
