 COLORADO TRIP by Shantel Flanary

History is being made this season, and especially from this weekend's trip! It started off well and finished even better. We left Thursday like usual with the flight being only about an hour, so wasn't bad at all. After checking into the hotel in Colorado we headed over to the field at Colorado College.  A fun fact Coach told us was that girls' soccer and men's hockey are the only D1 sports for CC, the rest are D3. After training we went to a little local Italian place that was delicious. The next day was game day! We had a rough first half but held it together with a little luck, we came out at half 0-0. We then picked it up and scored two goals in the second half. I had an assist that was flicked on by Kendra to Jenn who had a rocket of a shot! Then a few minutes later Kendra had the perfect ball across the box that I just had to put in easily. Molli had an amazing save off a pk, what a stud! They had a goal just after that but we were able to hang on for the 2-1 victory!   Afterwards, we enjoyed some Italian food with family.  On Saturday we drove through Garden of Gods before we left Colorado Springs and took some pictures because it was absolutely beautiful!   We arrived in Greeley and had a little training, then enjoyed dinner at Johnny Carino's and celebrated Kylie's birthday who turned 18!  On Sunday, we played Northern Colorado and we were able to win again 2-1 to make USU history by starting 4-0!! And from that record earning our first ever regional ranking at #9!! We got back to Logan at a decent hour and enjoyed driving into town with a blue "A" and history in the making!!
