Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Lexi Gillard and I am a sophomore Biology Major here at Oswego and also a part of the Women’s Basketball team. Now I have to set the records straight on one thing, I’m a townie. Now I’ve heard mixed reviews as to how townies are recieved in Oswego. I’ve heard “they’re all dirtbags”, or “Oh yeah they’re usually really nice”. Well coming from a townie, it’s a mixture of both. I think that being a townie and staying in Oswego is the best decicion I’ve made so far. I can drive home in 10 minutes and my parents will feed me, and I can also have my space and do as I please without having them criticize my every move. As with being a townie, there are pros and cons with every situation, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons, like the fact that I practically go to school for free! Anyways, the first week of our practices is now over and the season has officially started! I’m very excited to see how our team progresses over the course of the season, and I’m confident in all of our abilities. Come out and support your lady lakers!!!
