At one point during our 3-game day, I was a little put off about not getting the playing time I wanted. Then, I realized how selfish that was. It's about the team. I don't matter much compared to how we're doing as a whole. If the team's doing well, I have every reason to be happy. Our rookies should take these great opportunities to learn, and did the really step it up today or what? DC was awesome, like I can't believe she's never played before. Fast catch and throws, beautiful catches, beautiful throws, hard-core sprinting and reliability in the cup, sweet, coming up w/ some of our cheer ideas, encouraging. Totally deserved the Captains' Disc. And the whole team was freaking awesome. So many people played so well, I'd shine their cleats any day - SK, JH, VC, LG, VP, DC, just to name a few. A-mazing.
At Club Sectionals, one thing that really made an impression on me was JH's energy, always running up and down the sidelines when she was off, coaching and encouraging while we played. Where does that energy come from? It made me want to get up and get in the game with sideline up calls when I was off, and seeing her standing there while I played was really motivating as well. Grad students are awesome. There's something very encouraging and happy about their natures, at least the ultimate ones.
We won our bracket, giving us the Chumpionship. We broke seed 10th into 9th. We had a 5-2 record. Rookies learned a lot. Good team bonding. Both first game of the days were very well played. Makes me excited. Makes me want to train harder. I heart our team so much.
In so much [physical] pain tonight...
