golf

Hello everyone,

I have been truly enjoying my senior season of golf as a Division III athlete at Fontbonne.  The university just recently celebrated Division III athlete week on campus with a few on campus events April 3rd through the 6th.  I am a proud DIII athlete and I am thankful for the opportunity to represent my university when out on the course playing.  Anytime I am out at practice or playing an away tournament and wearing my Fontbonne uniform I am representing my university as a whole.  Without a doubt I have made improvements over the last few years since being on the golf team and I am glad I took the opportunity to play my sport for my university.

My team has three tournaments this spring as one of them was last weekend and we still have two of them coming up before the end of the semester.  I have really enjoyed practice lately as it has been nice enough to get out to the course consistently and either hit on the range or play a round of nine holes.  There is definitely a lot of aspects to work on in the game of golf in order to have a descent score when out on the course.  I have definitely made improvements in my game as the first round of eighteen holes that I played this spring I shot a 92 and I hadn’t played a full round since the fall.  I am only hoping that I will continue to improve my game in the next couple of weeks in both practice and especially at our tournaments we have.  I am planning to make the most of these last two weeks of golf season as my time playing competitively for my university is coming to a close.  If there is one thing I am thankful for this spring season it is for my fun loving team who is always there to make me laugh.

Thanks for reading this weeks post and stay tuned for the next blog coming your way.

Go Griffins and Go Blues!!

For the love of Sports

For me, I am very passionate about sports in general as I watch many different sporting events throughout the week.  I am a huge fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Blues as I faithfully keep up with their schedules and stats throughout the season.  I have always been a sports fan since I was a young kid as my dad used to bring me to his adult hockey games when he would play late at night out in Chesterfield.  Also, my parents have always taken the opportunity to bring me along to Cardinals baseball games at Busch stadium as I have plenty of memories of old Busch and New Busch.  I have sat in almost all areas of the new stadium since it was inaugurated in April of 2006 and I had the opportunity to go to the Home Opener that year.  I have also seen countless postseason Cardinals games over the years as well as a handful of Blues postseason games with my family.  One of my greatest memories from a St. Louis Cardinals Postseason game was in October of 2006 when we won game 5 of the World Series against the Detroit Tigers. I am a passionate Cardinals fan because I faithfully follow them from April until September and I even keep up with who is on the DL, oh I mean the disabled list. When I have the chance to attend a game at Busch it is always exciting and I cheer for all of my favorite players throughout the game. And when I am watching the game along with my friends or my teammates they don’t understand why I yell at the TV for a bad call that was made by the umpire.

Although I am very passionate about this team, that is not the only sport I am passionate about.  I also keep up with Professional Golfers who are on tour and I try to watch the tournaments that are a big deal.  I follow players like Dustin Johnson, Jordan Speith, and Justin Thomas on Social Media. As a golfer myself I like watching their technique and seeing their amazing shots go in the hole, especially on days when they are playing amazing rounds of golf.  It’s always fun to see how they do when they have those tricky shots because it makes me realize that I am not the only one who encounters tricky golf shots when out on the course. I enjoy seeing the winner hoist that trophy at the end of each trophy and I have even watched a few trophy ceremonies before.  Both the officials and players make it seem like it is the most coveted thing to ever hold and they handle it with care.  It makes a golf tournament trophy similar to that of the World Series trophy or the Limbardi trophy that is hoisted every February.  Except in the game of golf coveted trophies are hoisted much more frequently than a World Series trophy that is given to one team at the very end of the season. There is so much excitement surrounding the game of golf because you want the players to do well while competing on the course, but if you are there following along you have cheer silently unlike other major sports.

Thanks for reading why I am passionate about sports, particularly Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, and Professional Golf.

There are lots of things I am really excited about that are going to happen in the next three months of my life.  To start with, I am interested to see what the evening is like at my high school’s annual Buona Festa auction. For the second year in a row it will be held on my high school’s campus and it is a big fundraiser event. Another thing I am excited about that many Americans have been anxiously awaiting is the premiere of the Beauty and the Beast Live action film. I am so interested to see how magical the remake of this movie will be once it finally comes out in theaters in mid March.

Something I am most enthusiastic about is the upcoming spring golf season that starts the first full week of March. My team practices at the Highlands in Forest Park and mostly we practice individually based on our own schedules. Our first spring tournament will be a few weeks after our first practice, during the weekend of April 7th up in Monmouth, Illinois. I am so anxious about my final golf season as a college athlete because I want to do my very best and leave all of what I have out on the golf course. I can’t believe there are only a few more van rides and a few more overnights in hotels with my amazing golf team. I have made so many great memories over the last three and a half years and I can’t wait to make more memories throughout my final spring season.

One other major thing I am really looking forward to this spring is graduation on May 8th. I am excited to walk onto that arena floor alongside all of my classmates and fellow athletes.  Throughout this semester I am motivated to do my very best in my classes and make the most of my final weeks in college surrounded by my friends. For me it is hard to imagine not having some of my friends who are originally from other cities to not be close by anymore.  But personally I am anxious about what particular job I will have after graduation as I know there are lots of opportunities for me based on my major.

Until next week, I hope you enjoyed reading this weeks post and I am definitely hopeful for what lies ahead in the coming months.

Hello everyone!

This is my first time blogging with Fontbonne and I am pretty excited to see how it goes this semester.  I am a second semester senior at Fontbonne and I have truly enjoyed my last three and a half years here.  I still can’t believe that graduation is just around the corner, but I know God has a plan for me once it comes around.  For the last three years I have been on the Women’s golf team at Fontbonne and I have made so many friends while on the team.  I have made so many memories in other cities and can’t wait to tell you more about my adventures on the golf team as my final season approaches.  I have also been a member of the service organization on campus at Fontbonne for the last three years and I really enjoy taking other students to service sites off campus.

I have lived here in St. Louis my whole life and I am a die hard Cardinals baseball fan.  I am also an only child and I have a dog back at home.  I am very close with my family and I enjoy traveling to different parts of the United States with my immediate family.  I can’t wait for my new adventure with my parents in May to discover a few new cities. Stay tuned to hear more about life at Fontbonne and who I am.
