Goodbye Bermuda, hello Bethlehem. Our great Bermuda adventure has come to an end and as usually is the case when you go on a trip, I find myself asking where did the time go? As you can read from the writings of the players, we certainly did a lot during our time on this beautiful island. Each and every member of our travel party, which included parents, friends, and siblings, had an amazing time and made memories that will last a lifetime. While it was my third trip to Bermuda, I thoroughly enjoyed watching the players marvel at the pink sand beaches, explore the clear blue water, and bond in such a unique way. I was also very pleased in the progress we made from game 1 to game 2. I am encouraged by what we did and excited for what we can accomplish when we actually have some practices! We could not have had the experience we did without the help of our tour manager Cheri. Her upbeat personality and enthusiasm for her job really rubbed off on the rest of us. Our buses or vans were always on time and her connections on the island helped us get reservations for dinner, discounts on kayaking and even procure a pair of crutches. No one wanted to leave, but in a few hours the field hockey class of 2017 will be arriving on campus and the entire team will be together for the start of the 2013 season. I am hoping that the excitement from this trip will spread through the entire team and propel us to a successful season. Opening day is in two weeks! Time to get to work.
