First of all, Happy New Year to everyone! Hopefully everyone had a great Christmas and stayed happy and healthy during the holidays. I was not able to go home because there was no break in games, but I was able to spend Christmas with one of my teammates and her family. I had a great time and have been able to reset and refocus for the new year and second half of the season.
To give you a little update on how the season has been going, I would simply say, it has been going really well! In the Spanish league our team is sitting at third place and in Euroleague, we are second place in our group. Judging by how well we’ve been playing, I would say we have a good chance of making it to the finals in the Spanish league and the next round in Euroleague. To a lot of people, it’s a surprising how well we are doing (although it’s not surprising to us as a team). At the beginning of the season, there was no talk of Girona in any championship conversations, but with win after win against great teams, that conversation has changed very quickly.
Outside of basketball I haven’t had a whole lot of time, but whenever I get the chance, I try to visit some of the beautiful attractions here in Spain. I have been to the beach so many times (especially in the beginning of the season when it was warmer). I’ve visited the famous Parc Güell and La Segrada Familia and went to check out a men’s Euroleague FCB Barcelona basketball game. I also had the chance to visit one of the best restaurants in the world, that’s located here in Girona. I’ve gone to museums and a few other things too. Take a look below at the pictures to see more:
So as you can see, the first half of the season has gone well. As we begin the second half, we’re a little bit on pause, as there have been a few covid cases found on the team. Once we get out of quarantine I am looking froward to seeing more of Spain touristic wise and on the court, more winning and hopefully championships. We have the chance to compete for the Spanish Queen’s Cup, Spanish League and Euroleague Championships. Hopefully we’ll go 3 for 3! But as always, I’ll keep you updated along the way!
