Volley-Blog: Alison Simmons

Oct. 31, 2007

Every Wednesday during the season a different senior Husky Volleyball player will write a blog entry for GoHuskies.com. This week we hear from Alison Simmons.

Happy Halloween!!! We are lucky enough to be traveling on the day of Halloween! We leave today to go play Arizona on Thursday and Arizona State on Friday ... and we are pumped!!! The last few days since our match against Washington State we have been training hard and are very focused on every match that we face each week. It is crazy to me that we only have four weeks of Pac-10 left! This season is flying by faster than we realize, but we are at such a crucial yet fun time of the season! The team is so excited for how our season is going but we are even more excited to improve every day.

Our match last Friday was amazing!! It is always a really fun experience to play our in-state rival at home because our crowd gets so involved...not to mention that it was dress-up day for our game! It was so funny to look around and see all of the younger fans dressed up in their Halloween costumes! I'll have to admit the Whoopi Cushion was a classic costume, and I think we all give props to the person who wore that throughout our entire match!!!

We feel like it's been forever since we last traveled even though its only been two weeks, so it's kind of nice to get out of town for a weekend!! But we are so excited to host Stanford and California next week and we expect every single one of you to be there!! PACK THE HOUSE!! It'll be an amazing night of volleyball so don't miss it!! Until next time......Happy Halloween!!!
