We had a great day in Cali. Our training on the beach was magnificent. We went on a leisurely barefoot jog along the Moonlight shore, followed by juggling, passing, dribbling, and a heading contest (EWright and Katie G were victorious). Never thought we’d train in the sand in November. It was super fun! After training, a group of thrill-seekers spontaneously rode some waves and enjoyed the California tide, with some swallowed salt water on the side.
After lunch and some light shopping, we said good-bye to the beach and headed for practice at Cal-State’s campus. We watched the sunset as practice came to an abrupt end at 4:59 pm. Dinner was at a lovely Restaurante de Mexico, i.e. Las Olas (The Waves for you non-Spanish speaking folk). Needless to say, it was a really fun-filled day in the sun.
We gotta get some sleep, cause tomorrow, “It’s game day, baby.” Links to the live stats can be found on Benedictine’s website for kickoff at 2:00 pm PST (4:00 CST). GO RAVENS!
