week 7 of A Diary Of A Female baller

Monday March 19th

Today we found out that we would play Jamesville Dewit in the semi-final game on Friday instead of Saturday. That was a curveball to my team because we now have to rearrange our practice schedule, and we have fewer days to prepare. I had practice from 5:00 to 6:30. After practice, I came home and hangout with my friends for a while. 

Tuesday March 20th 

This morning my dad and I went to the gym around 12:00 and put a lot of shots up. I worked on my pull up on a fast break and some off the dribble moves. After shooting, I went home, ate some lunch, took a nap and than went to practice from 4:30 to 6:30. My team had to really get focused for Friday. After practice my friends and I went out to eat and than just hung out.

Wednesday March 21st

Unfortunately today practice was cancelled because of the snow storm that hit Staten Island. My school’s campus was closed and coach was not able to get any other gyms. I stayed home with my family and watched some game film on the teams we are facing and could possibly be facing this weekend. 

Thursday March 22nd 

This morning we had practice from 8:00 to 10:00. After practice I went to my moms school and helped out around the classroom. Towards the end of the day, I went into the schools gym and shot around. When I came home, I packed quickly and than headed to Glens Falls. When we got there, I ate dinner and than hung around for a little bit with my teammates. Curfew for my team was 10:30 because we had an early game!

Friday March 23rd 

This morning I woke up early and had a nice breakfast. We headed over to the gym around 8:00. Unfortunately we had lost to Jamesville Dewit by 12. After the game my parents and I headed home. My friend Liz played in the Jacques Game, which consisted of senior girls from all teams on Staten Island. I went to go watch Liz play and than we went to a party afterwards.

Saturday March 24th

Today I hung around my house for a while with my family. Later on at night, and group of my friends and I went out to eat and than hung out at my friend Chris’ house. 

Sunday March 25th

Today I had my home visit from my coaches at Manhattan College. They came over around 11:30. Coach Vulin came with her family and Coach Callan. We ate and talked. It was a really nice time. When they left, I went to my aunts to celebrate my baby cousins 1st birthday party.
