Training started yesterday. here’s first entry
I arrived in Columbus, Ohio at 8:30 this morning, where I was greeted by some of the USA coaches. We continued our journey on to Ohio Dominican University. The University is providing us with dorm rooms, meals, as well as a gymnasium for the next eight days.
Once all the girls were situated in the dorm room ‘suites’, we headed over to the dining hall for dinner. Shortly after, we made our way over the gymnasium and were introduced to the elite coaching staff; then we began our first official A2 Olympic Training Team practice. We practiced for two hours, mostly drills, until we competed for the last forty minutes.
Although today was a fairly short practice, I can already tell that this experience is going to be one of a lifetime. I am honored to have the opportunity to be playing with such an esteemed program and to be able to meet and compete with the top collegiate athletes all over the country. I’ve already met so many interesting girls and have learned a lot just in those short two hours on the court. These next eight days are going to be an awesome cap to my summer right before I head back to Hawaii!
