Hey Bear Fans!
Many apologies for taking a bit of a hiatus this fall from the blog. It has been a whirlwind of a fall between changes on the team, adjusting 10 freshmen and locking and loading on and off the field. Here is taste of what a week is like for Cal Lax…Instagram style!
Our #ManCrushMonday goes out to the one and only Coach Z! He has really helped us up our strength and running this fall. We’ve pushed ourselves to do “As Many As Possible” in all our reps because it’s AMAP season. We’ve put on our weight vests, hit the ground running in 40s and crushed it on the stadiums. Just last week we ran up and down each and every one of the steps of Memorial Stadium. All thanks goes to Coach Z!
If this isn’t the biggest transformation of Cal Lax, we just don’t know what is! Here on top is good ‘ol Laur back in her Bay Shore High School days killing it in her kilt in the Long Island Championship game. On the bottom is her squaring up against senior Grace Parente four years ago. She has been a marauder, an attendee of a school which shall not be named and finally a Golden Bear. Her transformation has been truly remarkable and she is finally where she belongs.
Here we have junior attacker Squisha doing pull ups as part of our weekly lifting routine. Squish is seen here using no band to help her, a task not many on the team can do! Way to go Squish. Keep up the lift because, like they always say, strong bears are winning bears.
TBT to the movement that started it all. #Jointhefight has been a subtle yet monumental motto for Cal Lacrosse. It has inspired and motivated us to keep going each and every day, day in and day out. When someone is feeling a little down, we just remember #jointhefight.
As part of our Fitness testing week right before Thanksgiving break, we topped it off with a full run of the stadiums, 24 ups and 24 downs. Here is the team after we hit our last up and started our walk down. It is one of the hardest workouts we do, but definitely the most rewarding.
ITS EVERYONE’S FAVORITE DAY… BRATURDAY!! Enough said.
And to end the week, we have a conglomerate of our team’s favorite activity – taking selfies. Take a close look at all of your favorite Cal Bears in their natural habitat doing what they love best; that is aside from playing lacrosse of course!
