Volley-blog: Alesha Deesing

Sept. 5, 2007

Every Wednesday during the volleyball season a different senior Husky Volleyball player will write a blog entry for GoHuskies.com. This week we hear from senior middle blocker Alesha Deesing, who was a second team AVCA All-American last year.

Dear Husky Fans,

As many of you know, we just came back from our first road trip of the season. The Gonzaga Tournament was a lot of fun and we got a little better as a team, which is of utmost importance. We were able to mix parts and spread out the playing time a bit too, which is always nice. The only major downfall of the tournament was playing in what felt like a sauna; even the fans were sweating like crazy!

The inside scoop:

Christal was able to get her Peanut Bruttles. For all of you who do not know, Christal is a huge candy lover! The whole bus ride up to Spokane, she was going off about how she cannot wait to get Bruttle; the best candy ever. I tried a piece and it is rather tasty. It is similar to a Butterfinger, but softer and more delectable.

The hotel we stayed in was amazing! It was very luxurious and safari inspired. Every road trip we room with a different teammate. This trip, Stevie and I were roommates. We spent much of our free time napping or watching the US Open and football. Being our competitive selves, whenever we had to leave our room we had a little competition of who could guess which of the three elevators would arrive first (Stevie, I demand a rematch!!).

As many of you know, our team loves routines. We even have routines for the bus. Everyone has a specific seat they sit in the whole year. Tama sits in front of me and across from her is Christal, and behind her is Brick, etc. On long bus rides, many of us watch movies, while others: sleep, read, play video games (Jill Collymore is the master of playstation!), do homework, etc. On the bus ride back from Spokane we watched Disturbia. Let me just say, I am the biggest chicken when it comes to even mildly scary movies, so I was completely freaking out as were many others (Megan, a.k.a. 'Debbie Downer', you are not allowed to bring movies anymore!).

Well, this pretty much sums up the Gonzaga trip. Thank you for all your support and enthusiasm, we love you all... Go Huskies!


P.S. Congratulations to football on their win against Syracuse!
