This weekend we travelled to Missoula, Montana for the Big Sky Gun Show tournament. We had a total of 18 ladies who packed their bags, hit the road, and were ready to show the other teams at Gun Show what we were made of. Spiral Jetty came into the tournament in the 4th seed and left as the Big Sky Gun Show Champions! These ladies worked so hard this weekend and we are so incredibly proud of everyone for playing their hardest and leaving everything on the fields. It's going to take more than a couple of mud piles and cold mornings to stop this group. We're celebrating our hard fought win with light stretching, naps, and lots of spaghetti! Way to go Spiral Jetty!
Special shoutout to our coaches Tania Reitz, Anna Thorn, and Chrissy Maruyama for the constant encouragements, never giving up on us, being there for us, and showing us the ropes. We could not have done this without you. There are plenty of coaches out there but no one as loving as you guys! We wouldn't want it any other way. So here's to Coach Reitz, Thorn, and Maruyama, thank you! <3
The 2016/2017 season for Spiral Jetty is now underway! Our ladies did a wonderful job recruiting new players which allowed us to do something we were never able to do before. This was the first year where we were able to bring two teams to Big Sky Warm Up! Everyone worked hard, and gave it their all this past weekend. There were tremendous growth in not only the newbies but also the returners. Veterans, Sam, Ali, and Hanna stepped up alongside with Sierra as captains for the weekend, and newbies broke out of their comfort zones. After a fantastic first tournament, we are excited to say that this year is going to be one for the books. Some of our memorable highlight moments from this tourney was when the two Utah teams, Justice Jousters and Liberty Ladies played each other and took the game to universe point, and The Liberty Ladies Freshman point against Montana Pillow Fight!
Needless to say, with a team as spirited and loving as these ladies, we aren't going anywhere but up from here. Get ready for one epic season. GO UTES!
We are all enjoying break but we are all excited to be coming back together at the U so that we can prepare to head out to Santa Barbara, CA January 24-25. We are excited for our first big game out there as well as soaking up so California Sun!
