Valentin Diary (7-20-04)
July 20, 2004
Indiana guard Cyndi Valentin is back on the road again with the Puerto Rican National team. This time the Bloomington, Ind., native and her teammates are headed to Guatemala City, Guatemala to take part in the second round of the CBC Championships.
A month ago Valentin and the Puerto Rican national team spent a few weeks in Puerto Rico for the first round of the CBC Championships. Puerto Rico, along with Cuba, Jamaica and Barbados, all advanced to the second round, which will take place July 21-22
My teammates and I all flew in from different places on Saturday, but all met up in Miami around the same time. We didn't do anything Saturday night because it was pretty late, but on Sunday we got up and had a three-hour practice. It was mostly conditioning and running through the plays. Later on we had another practice at 7:00 p.m. At that practice we went over a lot of defensive things. By the end of the night we were all really tired.
Check back soon
