Even though the combine wasn't what I had hoped for soccer-wise, I had a great time meeting so many other girls with the same dream, desire, passion and determination to hopefully be drafted this coming January into the WPS!
$400 got us:
1) a hotel suite--2 rooms, 4 big beds, kitchen, living room, 2 baths, small porch, and plenty of room--for a few days
2) 3 meals a day
3) and training gear--tshirt, 2 shorts, 2 socks, two jerseys, and a small pack sack, all sponsored by Umbro
4) and some unbelievable and unforgettable experiences!
The girls played so well amidst the heat and humidity. 3, 70-mins games in less than 60 hours is hard in itself, but these girls gave it their all, to impress the WPS coaches on hand. All the girls played well, and left nothing behind.
As for me, I'm going to get my knee checked out in VA, get an MRI and make decisions as they come. I'm hoping to be ready to go for December's invite-only WPS combine. Even if that doesn't pan out, there's always open tryouts with each team, and then there are still options beyond that. I'm trying to trust God's timing and plan in all this, though it is disappointing and disheartening.
A special thanks to you all for your encouraging messages, unending support, and prayers. They mean so much to me and have helped me as I cope with my knee injury...
Later : )
