Quick update...here we are with a 3-1-2 record, a three game winning streak and our only loss against a ranked opponent. We play our first conference game tomorrow against the 9th ranked team in the country and defending Empire 8 Conference Champions. I feel good, positive, and my brain has been zooming on adrenaline since the final whistle on Wednesday night. I'm not sure if it's the competition, results, upcoming matches, hours of video analysis, or my inability to pass level 149 of Candy Crush, but I'm wired!
Training has gone well and I believe that the players believe that we can do something with our season. Since I've been here, our team has always competed but on many occasions come up short in the end. Tomorrow will give us a little better indication of what this group is truly capable of. BUT, it's only the first of eight conference games so you can't qualify or get knocked out the playoffs in the first game! Just ask Jose! Nonetheless, it's always fun to compete with the top teams and I'm excited for our players to test themselves.
While the game is critical...I am hosting a big SAAC function on Sunday night. Gotta love the "extra duties as assigned." Go Hawks!
