This week's "Panther Pause" is by sophomore Brittney Harris. Brittney was successfully consistent in our lead-off beam spot last year and a solid contributor in the bars and vault line-up as well. This year she's stronger than ever and currently holding down our top all-around spot.
Hey Panther Fans!
Our team is working so hard! We are looking better now than we did last year at this time. The competitiveness on the team has been taken to a higher level. Everyone on the team is working hard to get into the competition line-up spot.
Over the weekend sports psychologist, Kevin Elko came and spoke with our team about the little things that make the big picture, and our big picture is winning the EAGL Championships. On Monday before Thanksgiving we had an intersquad called the Gobble No Wobble, and I noticed we all took the words that Dr. Elko said into consideration. The little things we had to focus on made our routines that much better. Yes we had a couple mistakes but we made sure we didn't carry those mistakes to the next event. The team did a great job at the intersquad and there is no place to go but up!
Not only does our TEAM strive for the eagle EAGL Championship but our strength coach Adam Gentry and athletic trainer Mallory Selldo as well. They are always there to support us and make sure we are doing everything we need to stay healthy and strong. A big thank you to both for their efforts and support!
Our Blue-Gold is quickly approaching so come out to the Fitzgerald Field House on December 10 to watch us scrimmage the West Virginia Mountaineers. We're ready, ARE YOU?
