WE MADE IT TO THE NCAA’S!  Today we found out that we got an at-large bid to the NCAA DIII Soccer tournament, one of 24 spots left. Six teams in our conference qualified, including: Chicago, Brandeis, Wash U, Emory and league champs, Carnegie Mellon. This is the first time in twelve years that NYU has made the tournament. The second in NYU Women’s Soccer history, and the first time that it has been done via “at-large” bid.


I can’t put into words how an incredible of a feeling this is. Four years of blood, sweat, tears, broken bones, torn ligaments, bruises, and turf burns. I am so incredibly proud of all my teammates, past and present who have made this moment possible. This has not only been a personal goal of mine, but a program goal that was set four years ago and it is truly unreal to see how much everything has progressed in that time period.

I’m going to keep this short and sweet, because I’m so excited and there’s still a lot we have to do.We play Amherst this weekend at Nazareth College in Rochester at 1:30PM on Saturday.

‘Twas the night before my sophomore year

‘Twas the night before  NYU, and all through the college,

Not a person was sleeping, ‘cuz they had no parents to acknowledge.

Most were quite tired, but no one went to bed,

For visions of clubbing and Electric Zoo were still in their head.

In my room, I was cooking and digesting,

While my poor tired legs yearned to be resting.

‘Twas the night before my second year, and all through the hall,

Not a kid was found excited for the academic fall.

For New York is a city, too diverse to describe,

And the city is a place that gives off a pretty cool vibe.

Yep – that is/was my only attempt at publishing poetry. Take it for what it is but you can probably tell I’m really excited for school since I only have one class, which is pretty nice.

Anyways back to business… Besides the Yankees (76-58) falling deeper into a slump and the Padres (62-73) recovering from their less than impressive first half of the season, the past couple of days have been pretty normal. My days have lulled away with soccer, reuniting with old pals and taking naps without fear of sleeping through class. Our team has transitioned from the two sessions a day to just one and have already competed in one game against Stevens. Although we lost, it was a very useful game because it really helps us analyze what we did wrong and what we can work on as a group and as individuals.

It’s 11:30 I have to catch the subway to class early tomorrow (hello 8AMs on 42nd St! Say What?) so I’m off to bed!

Until next time! And Happy first day of school everybody 🙂
