After another tough loss with my Premier League team Liffey Celtics this weekend in Waterford, Katie and I were headed to Maynooth with our Trinity Basketball girls for our first game. We had been anxiously awaiting our first appearance in Trinity gear. Not only that, but it is the first time since my guest appearance with the Meteors against Yale back in August that Katie and I have been able to play together. Needless to say, we were amped for the game.
We all piled into cars and headed to Maynooth (which has a beautiful campus) to face their women’s team. The girl who drove, Stephanie, brought us nicely down memory lane with a good dose of Akon for our pregame music (can you say freshman year of high school?) followed by a little Michael Buble Christmas album. It was great to get to know the girls a bit outside of training, and we were all in a festive spirit by the time we got to warm ups.
With a strong team effort, we were able to top Maynooth quite comfortably en route to our first win as members of Trinity Basketball. I can’t even begin to say how nice it was to play with Katie. We definitely have that roomie connection on the court. I am certainly looking forward to what this college season will bring!
