Well, it's been more than two weeks since the Southeast polo champs in Savannah. It definitely went better than South Central for me, but if there's one lesson I need to take away from it, I feel like it's this:
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
As simple as it sounds, I just need to be BETTER. At this point, I've got the basics down. This ain't my first rodeo. But to really break into the next level, I need to stop screwing up. No sloppy passes, no whiffs when taking shots. Just do everything that I can do now, but do it faster and more accurately. Control and pass the ball like it's not the hardest thing in the world. Unfortunately, this isn't really something I can change about the way I play, I just need to keep playing. Sure there are little tricks that can help out - scoop tricks, pivots and the like - but they aren't gonna make or break games.
We managed to scrape out a ninth place tie overall, and I think that pretty much sums it up. We're just out of the running for the best teams (the top 8) but hangin' tough with the intermediates.
