Club Soccer Catch-Up
A couple of days ago, I realized that I haven’t updated you all on my club soccer adventures at all this semester! So here I am, remedying that. The club soccer semester began at the end of August, about a week after classes started, with three days of tryouts, after which we had our team!
This semester, our team is the most competitive it’s been since I’ve been here–we got so many awesome new players this semester, and combined with all of our great returning players, we are unbeatable! (Literally. We’re undefeated right now, and the number one team in our region! And hopefully it stays that way.)
For our first games, we played the University of Alabama, and the University of Kentucky on the same day. They also played each other, so that we could all get two games out of the way. We beat both teams (obviously, since I already told you that we’re undefeated). Those first two games were a struggle for me–I am not in as good of shape as I may seem. (I really need to run more.) By our second game though, which was against MTSU (whom we also beat), I was feeling less like an old lady on the field and more like an actual soccer player. The next weekend, we travelled to Knoxville to play a game against (and beat) the University of Tennessee, during which I had an assist!
One of my favorite parts about being on the club soccer team, besides the soccer part and the loving my teammates part, is that we travel to places outside of Nashville that I have never been to before! Being from California, I haven’t really been to many places in the south, and thanks to club soccer, I’ve now been to South Carolina and Alabama, and Knoxville, and a few other places in Tennessee too!
Our next game is this Friday at 7pm, so if you’re in the area, you should definitely stop by! We love fans!
