Hi everyone! 

This Saturday marks the first meet of the season for many competitors around the state. I'm Hoping that everyone competes to the highest of their abilities and has a splendid time doing so.

Practice has been going well for me within theses last couple of weeks. The biggest challenge I'll be facing is staying in the diameter of the circle and finishing my throws with full force. Unfortunately our school doesn't have a ring to throw in, but I have gone after practice to schools such as Colby College to receive some time actually practicing in a ring, and the results were phenomenal.

This week, my goal is to do the best I can do and get some descent numbers out there for the season opener.  This we be my first real meet throwing with the rotation, but I feel as though I've tweaked some things out in order for me to compete well.

Good luck to everyone this Saturday!
