Women’s Lacrosse

I joined the lacrosse team this year because they were in need of some players. Let me just say, it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I hadn’t even seen the sport being played until I came here last year. You are pumped the whole time, and since it such a different sport, it is fun to watch. Since there aren’t any division III lacrosse teams in Missouri, all of our games are against teams from different parts of the United States. We play in Ohio, Illinois, and Kentucky this year. Many of the other teams from other states will be traveling here this year for games.

This spring break, we got to take a team trip to Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington. It was the most beautiful place I have seen. Since it rains a lot up there, everywhere is very green. We played three games on our six-day trip. Although the results of those games weren’t quite what we wanted, we really discovered the whole reason we were there. We were there to bond, since many of us don’t hang out in the same group of friends. The good thing about this is that we get along so well, and this trip just made us so much stronger and made memories that will stay with us forever. We got to do things like visit downtown Portland, eat in the mountains, go to the beach, and white water raft. In Seattle, we got to visit downtown, the famous market, the first Starbucks, and some of us even went to see a Jimi Hendrix memorial. It was a great trip, and I was very lucky that I got to join them.

Be sure to check out some of our home games!¬† Come support the women’s lacrosse team and have a great time! Our next home game is this Saturday at 3 p.m. We hope to see you there! ūüôā

Over spring break the lacrosse team went to California!¬† We had so much fun and I had a blast.¬† My favorite activity was whale watching.¬† My favorite animals are whales and it was amazing to actually see them in person.¬† I loved it when their tail would come out of the water and make a huge splash.¬† It reminded me a lot of Finding Nemo when Dory “speaks” whale.¬† We did not get to hear them sing,¬† but it was still a great experience.¬† We also got to see California Sea Lions and Dolphins.¬† The dolphins were so cute!¬† They were jumping out of the water and playing.¬† It was a beautiful day and an awesome experience.

fontbonnemaryHmmm…what’s my favorite thing about Fontbonne? I have about a million answers to this question, but I think they can all be summarized in one word: opportunities. I would have never in my wildest dreams thought¬†that I would have so many amazing opportunities at Fontbonne. Because of the close-knit community here and the number of faculty and staff who’s number one priority are the students, I’ve learned and grown in more ways than I could have ever imagined.¬†

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† From week one of my freshmen year I was introduced to so many things that have grabbed my attention and gotten me involved. I went to an interest meeting and before I knew it I was a starting¬†defender on the first ever NCAA¬†Women’s Lacrosse team in the state! I had never even touched a lacrosse stick, and here I was traveling all over the country playing teams that had been established for years. Speaking of travel, my freshmen year took me to Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas for lacrosse, and down to Georgia and Mississippi for service trips through FISH, rebuilding houses from Hurricane Katrina and building relationships with the people of that community. All of the sudden my freshmen year was over and I was honored with the Outstanding Freshmen Leadership award by SGA at the annual awards banquet, something that I never expected, but was an incredible honor.

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Before I knew it, it was my sophomore year I was the service trip coordinator for FISH, planning trips and recruiting people to go on three different and successful trips. That year took me to Tijuana, Mexico as well as Biloxi once again. I led a team of dancers at the St. Louis Area Dance Marathon held at Washington University every year, which raises money for Children’s Miracle Network. After the amazing event that I experienced, I decided to apply to be a part of the Executive Board at Wash U and was chosen as the first ever student from outside of their university to be a part of all of the planning. That event took place two weekends ago and the whole process and the skills I attained on the board will last forever. My sophomore year also took me to Rome on Easter Sunday with Campus Ministry, a once in a lifetime experience that I will remember forever. This year I’ve been leading FISH as President and overseeing the awesome events that we’ve been having and am also in the process of starting to plan Freshmen Orientation 2009. From leading retreats and having fun on campus, to teaching my very first lesson as an education major by my sophomore year, Fontbonne has provided me with more than I could have ever imagined, and I still have a while to go before I leave.

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† As simple as the word “opportunity” is, Fontbonne has been anything but a regular college experience for me because of the opportunities that I have been provided with. I’ll carry the skills and memories I’ve made from these opportunities with me forever….they’re all my favorite.
