Women's Basketball Blog: Brittany Hrynko

|
Hello to everyone who loves the Blue Demons! This is Brittany Hrynko, also known by my teammates or most of DePaul's athletics as "Britt" or "B". Although we have been done with basketball for some months now, I still wanted to keep you up to date with what is going on with the team!  Because the basketball season has come to an end, doesn't mean our lives as student-athletes have stopped.

The end-of-year Athletics Banquet was sad but also a fun event for all of the athletes. There was plenty of food and also deserts for everyone! After we ate, a couple of athletes received awards and then each team was introduced and the award for the Most Outstanding Athlete for that team was honored.

From women's basketball, Katherine Harry got up and introduced everyone and then she began to give a speech about someone who was not only special to her, but also special to the rest of the team and the athletics department. This person was Anna Martin, known by the team as "Big Lad".

The banquet is a great time for all of the athletes to come together and share all of their funny memories from the year with the other student-athletes. It was sad because our seniors, Kat and Anna, are leaving us. Even though they were hard on us in practice and sometimes in huddles after a hard fought lost.  Anna and Kat were great leaders when it came to basketball and were great people on and off the court -- if a teammate (or myself) needed a helping hand or just someone to talk to, we would go to one of them. They were always great to be around and have been great role models for me and that is something I am going to miss. 

While it was sad to say goodbye to Kat and Anna, we had a lot of fun taking pictures, and enjoyed being together with one another. I believe this is a great start for us coming together as a team so we can ready for what the next season will bring. 

Well, it's been real and I will talk to you guys next month!

Remember, Bring the Blue!
