Dispatch from Down Under: CNU's Schweers notches first win in Australia, and psst, Happy Birthday, Mom!

LadySwish is thrilled to have former Christopher Newport University legend Chelsie Schweers blogging for us during her season in Australia. Schweers, who happens to be the leading scorer in Virginia women's basketball history, signed with the Toowoomba Mountaineers in April. Here is her third report from Down Under.

By the way, Chelsie would love to have folks follow her at Twitter @chelsieschweers

While I am loving Australia, kicking the season off with three losses was hard. It's a struggle when you are on the losing side and still looking for that first win. You can easily let yourself slide and start thinking negative BUT the great thing about the Lady Mountaineers is that no one takes that attitude. Everyone encourages each other and believes in the team. Because of that attitude and good team plays, we picked up our first win this past weekend against the Gold Coast. 

It was a great team win and a big win for us. Gold Coast is one of the four teams in our bracket that determines whether we make the playoffs or not. I posted a season high with 30 points and 7 assists against Gold Coast. We want to ride that game-winning high into this weekend when we take on Gladstone. It's a great feeling go get that first win, and we will use that momentum going into Saturday's game against Gladstone. Let's go Mountaineers!

I would like to give a very special shoutout to my #1 fan - Happy Birthday, Mom! You are the best! Love you lots!


30 points and 7 assists for Schweers against Gold Coast.
