Here’s to the second semester of freshman year! Winter break was very long, and it gave me the opportunity to make some money and work out on my own schedule. But now it’s time to get back into classes.
It is also the start of our spring lacrosse season, so I am very busy! I am starting to get a schedule down to help balance my classes, homework and practice. My class schedule is very nice, I have four classes on Mondays and Wednesdays, three classes on Friday, one class on Tuesdays and my Thursdays are free! I highly suggest that you make a schedule that fits your schedule and personal style.
I love having some days off. I can focus on homework/makeup work on those days and get everything done that I need to get done. After my classes every day, we have practice that is usually 2- 2 ½ hours long. After that, I am either finished for the day or I go swimming in the Willett Hall pool.
Our season starts very soon, so be sure to check out our schedule online and come to our games!
Averee Gerold carries a big stick—but not all the time. She’s a lacrosse player. Her success in the sport in high school led to her being recruited for Longwood’s Division I lacrosse team.
Averee is a graduate of Ashley High School, where her favorite classes were nursing fundamentals and art. She was also involved in EC Buddies, Wings club and Fellowship of Christian Athletes there.
A kinesiology major, Averee will no doubt be able to bring her experience recovering from an ACL injury this summer into her future career. She also loves new experiences, so she’s in her element as a freshman at Longwood doing things she’s never done before. Although she could get some tips about what to expect from her first cousin and her cousin’s husband, who both graduated from Longwood in 2009.
Here are some random interesting facts from Averee about herself:
My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip.
I love going to the beach with family and friends.
