Wow. That’s all she wrote.
As we look at what happened this past month, we had one practice slot cancelled, team photos and all of our meets (although the weather tried to take two of them).
At Greensburg we were able to come away with a team win, but one statistic that I always want to improve upon from beginning to end are DQs (overall we had 20). As a coaching staff we want to reduce that number to 0. But we know that’s an aggressive goal!
For Milan, we made some changes to some events but in practice we made some intentional decisions to refocus on technique, including adding some peer coaching time for our bronze and silver athletes with the senior team.
As we continue to progress through the season, we kept the focus on skill development and bringing strokes to legal, or closer to legal.
At The remaining meets, we had a few less DQs (c’mon we can’t get it 100% right, 100% of the time) but we definitely tried.
SEISA brought in a new challenge. With Coach McMullen being as crazy as he his, we were projected to lose by 10, but ended up winning by 20. That didn’t happen overnight. It was a combination of our hard work, competitive spirit and having the right goal in mind. Improvement.
Improvement is one of those things everyone should strive for. We improved our technique from day one, we improved our attitudes and we showed that together as a team we could improve our standings.
Congratulations to everyone involved in this season and I cannot wait to see what the Fall brings for our high school athletes and cannot wait to get back into BMP for Summer 2023.
