Although we passed through many long and chilly months, the warm weather is finally here! It reached 80 degrees today, and all over campus you can see people sunbathing, tossing the frisbee, relaxing in inflatable mini pools, or just relaxing on the quad. One of my more favorite aspects of spring is that it is tennis season once again! I have played tennis for six years (it is my main sport), and so I couldn’t wait for our first matches to come around. Not only has our performance this year been fantastic (we have lost only one match and our #1 was injured), but it is an incredible group that I love spending time with.
Whenever we have to travel three hours to some far away school, or come back to campus at 9 PM after a late match, people always wonder why I do it. But honestly, those lengthy bus rides and never ending matches are some of the fondest memories I have of this place. Next week we are heading to the New England Championships, where we will likely be seeded first or second; even if it would be nice to win, I am most excited to spend a whole weekend with my team mates
