My last forty minutes of basketball is tonight. I have always had basketball in my life since I have been in 5th grade. I have used up all my athletic eligibility and I’m not sure how I feel about today being my last day playing ball. I am somewhat happy because I am slightly burnt out but I become saddened to know how much I am going to miss these girls. My teammates have become sisters to me and I have never had that happen to me on all of my teams I have played on. I know I will miss it by the end of the week for sure. It is time to grow up and put my big girl panties on. So please come out tonight and encourage our three seniors at 6PM when we battle Greenville for one more victory.
It has come at last!! Griffinsanity, formerly known as Late Night, is TONIGHT!! The Griffin Girl’s have been practicing and perfecting our routine! But not only will you see us perform, we have a special dance performance with….you’ll just have to wait and see for yourself!
There will be fun and games for all!! You will have the chance to meet the Men and Women’s Basketball teams and the Griffin Girls! But if that is not enticing enough, the first 75 people will receive a free GRIFFINSANITY t-shirt and a chance to win other prizes!!
Soo get PUMPED and head over to the DSAC tonight at 7pm– Dont be late!!
Our first game is on Tuesday. We call it an exhibition game when you play a division higher than you. Missouri Baptist has a great basketball program. We have prepared all that we can and we are out to beat them. Last year they started off with a quick lead and we came back only losing my ten. That’s not going to happen this year. Saturday, today, we scrimmage the baseball boys to strengthen us and to get some practice against other people besides ourselves for a change. We were more prepared than we thought and we gave the boys a run for their money. If you are around campus Tuesday, stop by the gym around seven and watch us beat the MOBAP women’s team for our first season win.
Women’s basketball is about to start up Monday the 15th. This year we have five stellar freshman that are going to help tremendously this year. We have worked really hard this pre-season with conditioning and weightlifting. This is my senior year, so I am giving it all I got this year. We have the potential of going really far in our conference, considering we have a lot of talent and height. Along with our hard workouts, we had a lot of fun with team bonding events. This year was our first annual mouse race fund-raising event. There were so many people donating and contributing for all of us to go to Daytona Florida for a Christmas tourney. Our favorite item was a free two hours at Pin Up Bowl on Delmar. There are so many good memories already made, and so many more to come.
