As most of the scholars have written about, most of us girls were in Dublin this past weekend to support Marritta and her NUIG Mystics as they played in the National Cup Final. It was an interesting change for me to be cheering on Rita. As we both played in the MAAC conference in college, we were not exactly friends. I had a secret dislike for the girl on Rider University who blocked everyone’s shot on my team as they went to the basket! I definitely would not be cheering her on in a conference game, since I obviously wanted my own team to win. It’s crazy to think that now I find myself cheering for her on the sidelines and so happy for her to win a National Cup Final.
On a side note, it’s great to have the support system that we have with all of the scholars. We are all like family, and it was not even a question of whether or not we were going to cheer on our girl Rita this weekend!
