Warm weather excites teams at UCF

SORRENTO, Fla. – It has been a while since we have had good weather in Florida. I know, I shouldn’t complain compared to what others have experienced all over the country.

Monday at the UCF Challenge, UNC-Greensboro is practically jumping with glee just to play. The Spartans have been hit hard this year with snow and frigid temperatures.

“It has been tough to get ready and go play this spring,” coach Emily Marron said. “We have no indoor facilities, and have not been able to go out and practice due to all the snow for the last four weekends in a row.”

Marron has a good theory and outlook for her team’s spring, though.

“During the spring teams can get real drained with golf and worn out,” she said. “I keep telling my girls that we are one of the most well-rested teams in the country, so let’s go out and play.”

Marron also said that with the unfortunate weather conditions, the team has been able to focus on getting ahead with school work and getting stronger in the weight room.

“It’s not often you get real excited just to play in 60-degree weather,” Marron said. “But that’s the opportunity we have this week and the team is pumped.”

I’m pumped just knowing that it’s 60 degrees in Florida, and starting to get warm again . . . just like it’s supposed to.
