Keeping Busy in the Gym and in the Classroom

Oct. 14, 2010

Iowa volleyball fans will be able to follow members of the Hawkeye volleyball team as they blog about the 2010 season. The Iowa student-athletes will discuss the Hawkeyes’ upcoming matches, road trips and what it’s like being a student-athlete at the University of Iowa. Senior Becky Walters is this week’s designated blogger.

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Hello once again Hawks! My teammates and I are gearing up for another exciting road trip this weekend! We will be flying out Thursday to Columbus, Ohio eager to strike a win against the Buckeyes! Following our match Friday night we will board the plane once again, and depart for State College, Penn. On Saturday we will face off against the Nittany Lions and the Hawkeyes are determined to mold Happy Valley to `Unhappy Valley!’

This has been an extremely busy week for students with midterms and project deadlines drawing near. Tiffany Nilges had FIVE exams this week! It’s amazing how student-athletes are able to balance their time in order to get things accomplished. Even though we are so pressed for time, we still found time to go cheer on our fellow student-athletes!

On Sunday, my teammates and I all gathered after practice and went to watch the Iowa Field Hockey team play Michigan. It was so much fun! Although we had little idea what was going on….we were STILL the loudest fans there, and enjoyed every minute of it! – and we are happy to say that we are slowly learning more about the game of field hockey 🙂

On behalf of my team and I, we would like to graciously thank you for your continual loving support throughout the first part of this season! GO HAWKS!
