I just wanted to give everyone an update on one of the bands that many of us in Iota are involved with: Courtside!
Every year, despite how our basketball teams our teams do in regular season play, we’re at least able to go to the Big XII tournament. However, this year both teams were doing so well, the Big XII tournament was just the beginning of March Madness. Being a 5th year senior, I’ve been on my fair share of tournament trips but this year was the first time I was able to go on the Big XII tournament! I was super excited because it was a last minute opportunity and would eventually be the last time I would get to play in Courtside as an undergrad. :(
But anyway, the trip was so much fun and I would do it all over again. The tournament was in Kansas City, Missouri (which was a place I had never been to). Besides watching the games/playing pep rallies/playing during the game, we went to an outdoor mall and ate Kansas City barbecue.
One of the things I like the most about tournaments is that a lot of us are able to grow closer as sisters because we’re pretty much seeing each other 24 hours a day for 3-4 days at a time. I was able to room with three other sisters (Jenny Bates, Leanna Mason, and Christina Griffin) and it was so much fun.
Even though this trip ended up being my last time in Courtside, I had so much fun and it was just a great way to end my five years in Courtside. I was able to see the Lady Bears win the Big XII tournament, see the Man Bears beat Kansas (they had a home field advantage), eat awesome barbecue, and spend time with my amazing sisters.
