Jo Lowry on the European Championships

Posted by:

To have been chosen to represent my country is a considerable honour, one of which not many people will get to experience. It all started in Leeds where I was called up for the first of many camps.

I was very nervous to begin with as I was new to this whole process but I soon settled in with the squad. The preparation games that we had against Ireland, Sweden, France and Bulgaria gave the squad valuable experience, and along with ...

Hatters’ Georgia Gayle Represents England U18s in Portugal

Posted by:

Georgia Gayle’s 17 points were not enough to prevent the U18 Women ending their three game trip to Portugal with an 80-51 loss to their hosts.

England started slowly and were down by 16 points midway through the second period, but Lee Ryan’s side rallied to cut the deficit to 40-28 going into the locker room at half-time.
A 14-3 run from the home side to open the second half effectively ended the chances of a comeback, but England’s defence stepped and ...

Cycling 101

Posted by:

In America, I come from a very small town. When I ride my bike at home, I tend not to care or pay attention to where I am riding because it never really mattered. We have aproximately 7 traffic lights and one street houses our entire “downtown” area, post office, police station, fire station and all. Here in Sheffield things are much different.

I am very aware that I break nearly every single regulation when it comes to cycling in this ...

Sabra Wrice’s Tips for a Successful Season Overseas

Agree to disagree…

1. Pack your favorite foods. I don’t care if you did research and you found that they sell your favorite food in the country you are going to play in, it probably won’t taste the same… There is a reason America has the highest obesity rate.

2. You can’t hang with Europeans when it comes to partying. First off, beer in America is 2 parts water, 1 part alcohol ...

Busy, Busy, Busy, Sleep.

Posted by:

I am sure you have all been wondering where I have been. Its been a while since I have actually had time to post, also my computer died a little and it took me three days to resurrect it (no pun intended). Well these past couple of weeks have been very busy and if I wasn’t busy I was trying to sneak in naps (that always turn in two 4-5 hours worth of sleep/wasted time). If you don’t know by ...

Translator

Posted by:

Hello again my dear friends. I have decided to write up a small dictionary to help translate some of the things us basketball players and coaches say. Enjoy!

Players

“She’s not that nice (or good)”: Really, whoever said person is, she is indeed very good, talented even. She is probably one of the top players in the league but because she’s not on my team, I’m not going to admit that.

“I played awful today”: Scored about 20+ points, had 7 ...

The Pedestrian

Posted by:

Pedestrian

When I first entered England, one of my friends tried to teach me how to drive. After hyperventilating at a roundabout and then watching her almost drive her car into her apartment building because I left it in gear, it became clear I was destined to be a pedestrian in this country. I walk or take public transportation almost everywhere and its weird because I try my best to avoid public transportation in America. Anyways, when I first got to ...
