England Tour, Day 3 – Punting Down the River

The field hockey team is spending spring break on a tour of England. Carly O’Loughlin ’14 and Jaclyn White ’13┬áreport on day 3 from Cambridge.

field hockey player Jaclyn WhiteToday was a day of travel. We woke up early, had breakfast in the hotel in Nottingham, and then took our journey to London.

After a couple hours of driving through the fog, we arrived in Cambridge and broke off into groups.

Both Jaci and I (Carly) went punting down the River Cam. We learned facts about Trinity College, including its rich history and Bridge of Sighs. In addition, we discovered how frightening swans can be and Hanna took her hand at punting. We found out that it takes a little practice.

That evening we had a game against the Ole Lautonians where we got to try our skills out at an Olympic training site. We ate jacket potatoes with the team in their clubhouse after the match.

After our busy day we collapsed in our hotel rooms, and we are looking forward to an eventful day in London tomorrow.
