This spring break was definitely one to remember, I can confidently say that for both myself and the team. We were all able to see and experience new things, visit family and friends that we hadn’t seen in a while, and have some time to relax and take a break from our busy schedules.
My spring break started a little bit early when I traveled to San Juan, Puerto Rico. I had been before but I didn’t remember it being so beautiful. The water was so clear and blue, the food was amazing, and it was great to be able to spend quality time with my family. We explored so many exciting things such as the rainforest as we zip lined through it, the private islands which we snorkeled at and the historic forts that played a huge role in the existence of Puerto Rico. This island is definitely a place that I would never get tired of and visit many, many more times.
Channing had a spring break that I don’t think she will ever forget. She visited South Padre Island with some of her closest friends and went to a huge 3 day concert the island hosts called UME. This concert featured dozens of different artists some of which she already knew, and some that she didn’t. She said it was a long 5 days with very little sleep but it was worth every minute.
Maddy Walsh went home to Arlington Texas where she spent a lot of time with family. First she attended her cousins wedding which she says was wonderful. After the wedding, she went to her lake house on Lake Texoma with her grandparents, parents, and sisters. The lake house is Maddy’s favorite place to be because of the beautiful scenery and relaxation. Maddy changed her hairstyle to one that not many people can pull off! She loves the short hair and bangs but is a little bit concerned about it when it comes to staying up and out of her face during workouts and practice!
Alex, Rachael, and Tarine were all sad to have work during the break but were able to visit Six Flags Fiesta Texas here in San Antonio with a few other athletes who attend St. Mary’s. Although they said the lines were extremely long, and the weather was very hot, that didn’t stop them from having a great time with each other!
Maddi King, visited Daytona Beach in Florida with a few friends for three days. She said she loved every second of it but she was happy to return home because being in the constant sun drained her and she ended up getting sunburnt.
Allison when back home to Houston where she was able to spend quality time with her family. While she was there, Allison also changed the style of her hair; she straightened the curls and it looks great! Since her hair takes very long to straighten, we never really get to see it that way. Allison was sad to leave her family in Houston but was also ready to be back in San Antonio!
Megan took a trip to Minnesota for a few days where she shopped at the Mall of America and got a huge Stich stuffed animal! After the trip to Minnesota, Megan went back home to New Braunfels and spent quality time with her mom until it was time to come back to San Antonio.
Lauren spent time with her family and fiancé searching for potential wedding venues. She is so excited to be at this stage in her life but still can’t believe it!
