WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Throughout Val Nichol's training and competition as a part of the U.S. Collegiate National team, she will provide updates on purduesports.com.

Wednesday's blog discussing the team's success as well as some unique activities in which the team has partaken.

With a win over Russia and Adidas Midwest today, we have advanced to the championship match against Slovenia at 7 pm tomorrow evening! But, before we compete for the gold, we are going cliff jumping!!

Croatia is beautiful and I am enjoying every moment. The landscape and architecture is so unique. One challenge we face daily is washing our clothes and uniforms in the sink and letting everything air dry. Being from America, we are used to things like laundry taking an hour or so...not here. We have to plan ahead and allow enough time to air dry our clothing. And just pray for no rain!

One of the traditions we have established is purchasing a 'victory coke' after every win because the little glass coca-cola bottles are just so cute! Hoping to enjoy one more before leaving Pula, Croatia, Friday morning.
