Betty started off the year strong, attending like a bazillion hawk week recruiting events and it paid off! We had about 40 girls show up to the very first practice of the year. Per Kansas usual it was super windy which made learning throws even harder than normal for the rookies. But that didn’t discourage them, and they’ve already made great strides in their frisbee skills. We even had some rooks showing up in cleats on their first day #dedication!!
In preperation for Loren’s arrival we’ve been teaching them new comers that gray is not a color in frisbee, white means white. Something that captain Jlo is still struggling with apparently.
Of course it wouldn’t be a Betty practice without a half dressed Grace!
And can we talk about last years rookies? Hot dang! We can’t believe how far they’ve come since last year and the improvement over the summer has been tremendous. If the rookies have any doubts about their skills just tell them to check out the 2nd years!
With the addition of three new Hannah’s we are debating changing our name to “Hannah” as they know make up about 15 percent of the team. Stay tuned for a twitter poll to cast your vote!
We hope the rookies loved coming out as much as we loved having them! Now only time will tell who’s caught the bug, but I’ve got faith.
Wanting to keep track of Betty this season? You can find us at Manhattan Project (October 15th and 16th), Aimes to Please (October 22nd and 23rd) and of course MLC (Novembr 5th and 6th)
It was great to see all the Bettys again in one place and you can already tell it’s going to be a year filled with lurvs, laughs and wins!
