After a good showing on the road in Chicago last weekend the Bearcats came out with another strong week of practice. We ended our road trip 1-0-1, beating Northwestern 2-1 on Friday night and tying Loyola-Chicago 0-0 on Sunday afternoon. Coming away with no losses on the road was exciting, but not as exciting as the game Friday night in which Michelle got her 100th win as a head coach! After the game, we found out it was her 100th win and Hebs gave her a little gatorade shower to celebrate! 100 wins is certainly an accomplishment and is an attribute to how great of a coach Michelle is! She is such an amazing coach and we were honored to help her reach 100 wins!
We came out Tuesday morning for practice and the competition was great. We did a 6v6 tournament with 4 teams to determine our fitness at the end. We played 2 minute, 3 minute, and 4 minute games versus each of the other 3 teams. Wednesday we worked on our attack and painting out how we can be successful this weekend! We ended with a little scrimmage and some shooting. Thursday we did our usual day-before game routine and ended with our favorite game, Blondes vs Brunettes. We had a strong week of practice so I hope we continue that this weekend as we take on Western Carolina and Wisconsin.
We play Western Carolina tonight (Friday) at 7pm on Gettler and Wisconsin at noon on Sunday. Please note the Wisconsin game time has been moved an hour earlier from the original 1pm start time and will now be kicking off at 12pm!
