Goodbye

We ended our year with a banquet, one final fundraiser, and a team dinner in the North End. Now, finals are ending and BU is looking forward to Commencement, where the seniors from all BU’s colleges and schools gather together for graduation. This year, we had to say goodbye to three fabulous seniors. One of them will be a coach next year but the rest are looking forward to go wherever life takes them next. We wish them the best of luck.

With that, I turn over the website editing and blogging to our Secretary for 2012-2013, Amanda Kelleher. It’s been a lot of fun, but I know that Amanda will keep you updated on the daily happenings of the team for this coming year.

Have a fabulous summer everyone!

Sincerely,
Marie Hoff

Pictures

Micaela Bedell came to practice before our show and took some pictures of us! She did a fabulous job and YOU can see OUR photos by clicking on the “Pictures” tab above and then going to the “2011-2012 Season” link. Her photos are at the end– they are the ones with us in red swim suits. Feel free though to look through them all, though!

Global Day of Service

It is really important for us to do community service. Last semester, we donated toys for our club sport’s Toys for Tots drive. Today, two of us participated in our Community Service Center’s Global Day of Service event. We helped rake leaves at a community park near our campus. The students from Boston University filled over 200 bags! Look at the pictures– click “Pictures” above and then choose “2011-2012 Season.”

New Secretary for 2012-2013

As a club team, we are run primarily by the students on the team. We have an executive board, which consists of a president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary. This coming year, the president, vice president, and treasurer will be the same girls who held those positions for the 2011-2012 season. Our secretary, however, will be going to Madrid in the fall, so we held elections for the position on Tuesday. Our new secretary will be Amanda (Mandie) Kelleher. We will begin to train her and we look forward to working with her next season!

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.
