Due to the world’s current state of affairs and the measures that were put into place, Tennessee State University Student-Athletes have had to make adjustments to how they go about their everyday lives.
In March, TSU transitioned to online classes and all athletic related activities, including completion and practice were suspended. Since then, student-athletes have had to adjust to a new normal.
Name: Marisa Mauroschadt
Q: How did the transition to online classes affect your life?
A: It created a lot more confusion trying to adjust and it made life a little more hectic … having early class caused me to have to wake up earlier because of the time change.
Q: How have you adjusted to the new “normal” that the world is currently facing?
A: I've tried my best to adjust as well as possible and make the best out of the situation.
Q: What are you doing to stay on top of your game while you have to train/practice away from your team?
A: I continue to do physical therapy to rehab my shoulder and hit everyday to keep a good feel for my swing and make little adjustments in my swing.
Q: How are you taking advantage of or making the most out of this situation?
A: It's giving me a little more opportunity to work out by myself and really zone in on the little but important parts of the game especially the mental aspect.
Q: What are you doing to keep in contact with your teammates and coaches?
A: We all still text in group chats and keep updated with everything and most of us text each other individually or call to stay updated with each other's lives.
