Practice, Practice, Practice and Then More Practice

Today the team woke up for a nine o’ clock swim. Since some of the players had mild sickness, they were told to take a walk on the treadmill as an alternative. After the swim/walk, we once again had breakfast at the hotel restaurant.

Once we filled ourselves up on breakfast we made our way to our twelve o’ clock practice. This was our third to last practice and we made sure that we practiced with intensity. This intensity carried over to our second practice after we had lunch in the nearby stadium.

The second practice came with many spectators giving the team a simulation of how the games would be. This became our second to last practice and we knew that we had to practice as we are going to play in the tournament. This was our most intense and productive practice as a team since we landed in Mexico.

After our second practice we came back to the hotel and had our dinner at the same hotel restaurant. The team was informed that we get to have a sleep in day tomorrow.

We will be well rested and ready for our last practice before the tournament starts on Sunday.
