Spring Break!!

(Athletics, Just for Fun, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
Driscoll Photo Sunny weather, here I come! In only a few short days, I will be headed to central Florida for a fun-filled, crazy week with the crew team. I cannot wait—it’s going to be awesome.

 

Everyone here has mentally checked out already for spring break. Lots of people are going to crazy places like the Caribbean, Cabo San Lucas, or even home. Several teams are going to Florida as well. But until then, we have just three more days of school. Billet Night for the firsties is on Thursday. I really hope that all the firsties I know get the choice billets they want. Then, it’s off to party and celebrate. And for all the underclassmen, it’s SPRING BREAK!! Can you tell I’m excited?!

 

Yesterday was my first day out on the water for crew. With a whole new group of novs, our upcoming season will be so much fun. I get a new boat, as the other coxswains move up to “Candy” and our newest boat. I am really excited for the season. With all the changes on the team, I will have a new group of rowers in my boat. However, I will get to cox a four (four rowers and a cox) with the more experienced novs. With the new season fast approaching, the team did a 2K test the other day. Will Rimmler, the 1V cox, coxed me through my first one—and it sucked! I felt horrible; it was miserable. But I met my goal, so I can work to improve.

 

Well, I didn’t really have anything else to say, so I’ll try to write a (clean...ha, ha) version of what happened in Florida when we get back! Have a great Coast Guard day!
