"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength." - Arnold Schwarzennegger

First of all, yes I did just quote Arnold. Second of all, we are not even close to being where we want to be, this is just the beginning of our journey and I feel obligated to acknowledge that. That being said, tonight we fought! We officially have our first victory under out belts! It wasn’t pretty, in fact at times it was really ugly basketball, but we gutted it out and ended up winning by 2 points against Bernex, another team in our conference based out of Geneva. I don’t know if it’s because I’m so in the zone during games or what, but I always have a hard time remembering the game after the fact. I’ll try my best…

We pretty much relied on fast-break basketball tonight; we continuously pushed the ball up the floor for quick buckets. I was slightly confused by the girls who were guarding me because they literally just stood on my high side and face-guarded me. Needless to say my teammates are getting in the habit of lobbing me the ball, setting me up to be a Hillary sandwich. Thank God I’ve been making my free-throws (for the most part at least)! I really enjoyed playing with my teammates tonight; everyone cheered on the bench and was invested in what was happening on the court. I will say that my body is a nice shade of black and blue and I am looking forward to having the next few days off.
