October Update - Summer Has Taken A Fall

After the searing heat and humidity that plagued much of eastern Ontario for the final week of September, temperatures are now where they should be at this time of the year.

The cooler air is refreshing, especially considering the lion's share of my tennis club's year-end championship took place in that hot weather.

In both singles and doubles, I made it to the semi-finals. I'm very pleased with those performances after all of the work I put into my game this season. In fact, I have beaten every opponent I've faced at the club at least once this year except for two players (one of whom is the 3-time defending club champion).

Now, I am focusing on maintaining all of the progress I've made over the spring and summer by playing once or twice a month during the fall and winter.

Next season, I plan on registering with the Ontario Tennis Association to play in an open tournament once a month to obtain a provincial and a national ranking to see where I stand among the top players in the province and the country. (spoiler alert: it will probably be near the bottom).

Work-wise, in September I continued to diversify my media portfolio by working some sports anchoring shifts and another reporter shift, all in addition to my regular weather duties.

My first feature was on 17-year-old tennis player Bianca Andreescu. My most recent profile was on 53-year-old golfer Judith Kyrinis.

In October, I will be co-hosting The Morning Show during the week of Thanksgiving, so be sure to tune in.

Thanks for reading and watching!
