U.S. Collegiate Championships

We just flew back from Florida, where we competed in the 2012 U.S. Collegiate National Championships in Gainesville. We were very excited to be finalists in the team routine! In addition, one of our girls placed 5th for D figures. Thanks to all of our family who watched us compete!

Eastern College Athletic Conference

This past weekend, we drove to Canisius College in Buffalo, NY, to attend the Eastern College Athletic Conference. We brought home the third place trophy, the third place team routine medal, and many ribbons for trios, duets, and figures. Our placement means that we are officially the best club team in our conference! We are now launching into our final preparations for Nationals, which will take place in Gainesville, Florida, as it will be hosted by the University of Florida.

Wheaton Invitational

We had a meet February 11-12 at Wheaton College. We did very well, placing fourth behind three varsity teams that had placed 1st, 4th, and 6th at Nationals last year.

New Years

Happy New Years everyone! I know that many people plan to lead healthier lifestyles with the new year. Remember to be wary of fad diets. Evaluate the strategies for being healthy that work for you. What have you done well in the past year? What would you like to improve? There is no need to start from scratch– we all can draw from our experiences. Here are some tips that I am sure that you have read many times before, but that I would like you to read again. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, with a well rounded menu that includes starch, protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and calcium. Exercise and be sure to stretch and keep hydrated with plenty of water. Remember that health is not limited to physical health, but emotional, mental, and spiritual health as well. Keep the crippling stress at bay, remember your inner strength, find good people that you can trust, and love your body and yourself!

Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots, run by the U.S. Marines, collects toys for children in need. Boston University Club Sports recently participated in the program by holding a competition to encourage clubs to donate toys. Synchronized Swimming came in second place in the competition. More importantly, however, is that we helped to make a difference in our community.
