Blogging with the Buckeyes
April 12, 2013
Buckeye senior Fidan Manashirova has been blogging all season, catching fans up on the squad's adventures throughout the year. The team is home this weekend, hosting Illinois at 2:30 p.m. Friday and No. 16 Northwestern at noon Sunday. Matches are scheduled for the Ohio State University Varsity Outdoor Courts, but will be moved to the Ohio State University Varsity Indoor Tennis Center in the case of inclement weather.
Checking in once again on a lovely Thursday evening. The team is gearing up to take on Illinois tomorrow at 2:30 at home. April has brought many showers so as long as there is no rain tomorrow, we hope to be outdoors for the first time this season.
Last weekend, we went to Wisconsin and Minnesota. This was the first time I had been to either school and I was very impressed! It was great seeing our former coach, Chuck Merzbacher, in Minneapolis when we took on the Gophers. We got to visit the Mall of America while we were there. This mall was the biggest place I have ever seen. I'm pretty sure our team walked around in only 1/4 of it and didn't know where we were.
I am looking forward to spending this weekend at home playing against Illinois and Northwestern. There are only three matches left at home for the season so I hope everybody tries to make it out! See you all tomorrow!
