Hello again Vanguard! Our women's soccer team is now about half way through the season; we are now 6-1 in GSAC and prepared to finish strong. These first few months have been a crazy adjustment for me. Coming from high school, I haven't quite been used to the extra-long hours of classes and work. In addition, starting off season in the fall meant dedicating the rest of my time to soccer. I am finally starting to get in the swing of things and beginning to make a lot of friends!
