South Bend: Finally Here
Nov. 19, 2009
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The time is finally here for the trip to South Bend, Ind., the home of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in preparation for the Sweet 16 showdown Friday night at 4:30 pm PST at Alumni Stadium.
As the days have gone on and game day approaches, the team is more and more excited for it to finally be Friday so they can get out there and play the game.
Breakfast was a little bit earlier today so that the team could get up, eat, and pack before loading the bus for the next leg of the NCAA Tournament. For the first time this trip, it rained this morning as the team was about to leave Ann Arbor, Mich. Unfortunately, the rain followed and as the team left to get in final training before tomorrow's match the rain was there.
It was probably the coldest it has been during the entire trip today but that could not dampen the spirits of the team. Training today went well and the team can hardly wait to get out on the pitch tomorrow night to take on the Irish.
The rest of the day was spent studying for quizzes and tests that several members of the team had to take after dinner.
Tomorrow is the big day for the team, so check back tomorrow night for the game recap and as always follow the game via gametracker and live video stream provided at www.und.com.
