Hinshaw enjoys first SEC experience

Jump to previous journal entriesStacy Lewis || Courtney Mahon || Lindsey Hinshaw || My First SEC ChampionshipWe returned late Sunday night from SEC’s. Everbody was exhausted, but the trip was an awesome experience! This was the first trip we had driven to since I have been at Arkansas. I have to admit it was kind of nice not having to deal with the chaos of checking bags and worrying if we will catch our next flight. It also gave us all a chance to bond!This was the second trip in a row that we stayed in a town known for casinos and gambling. The ones over 21 hit the slot machines and blackjack tables once again testing their luck (some had better luck than others)! The last night, the ones under 21, Stacy and I, along with Kelley, Kelley’s husband Trey, Shauna, and a couple of Shauna’s roommates, Alli Clark and Kelley Waters all went to the arcade across from our hotel and played games for a couple of hours. Kelley wasn’t able to remove herself from the pinball machine, Stacy became a skateboarding pro, and I was stuck on trying to beat Pac-Man!One of the highlights was walking off the 14th green during the first round and seeing a herd of people decked out in Razorback gear and Alli wearing a big hog hat! It was awesome that they came to cheer us on! I think it got all of us excited! After the first two rounds we didn’t think we had much of a chance to win the tournament with the #2,#7,#9, and #10 ranked teams ahead of us. We ended us being in the perfect position, going out first and posting a low number for all the other teams to look at. We sort of snuck up from behind. As the leaders came in, their lead became smaller and smaller and ourchances got better and better. We ended up missing the playoff by one shot! We were heartbroken but were so proud of ourselves for what we accomplished! The last round has given us that extra ounce of confidence and we are ready totake on regionals where ever they send us!Lindsey
