Just last Friday I was able to play in my first official game in Ireland with my NUIG Varsity team. We matched up against UCC and it was quite a game, back and forth the entire way until we pulled off late in the 4th quarter. We ended up winning by 17, and I represented with 34pts (or 36, not actually sure) to kick off the season. It is still a few weeks until I can play in a National League game (Nov. 17th) but last Saturday my team (NUIG Mystics) got the win without my help! Nice job ladies! It really is a lot different playing as the only American on the floor, but still just as enjoyable! I am so thankful for the opportunity to play and support my team.
I am really looking forward to meeting up with the rest of the Victory Scholars this week! Next weeks blog will have more coaching stories from the camp and clinics!
