Hey Wildcat Fans. Sorry for the long hiatus, it has been a very busy few weeks with volleyball and school especially, and there are no signs of any slowing down! BUT first, we have a lot to catch up on!! Right now, I am sitting in the locker room with Stephanie, Elise, and Kaylen just killing time between classes and trying to catch some downtime after such a busy weekend.. but I am getting ahead of myself…
The weekend before this past one we played in Santa Clara, and were very pleased with our performance. Not only did we sweep the hosting team, we also swept the University of Utah, extending our win streak to 8-0. As soon as we got back to Tucson we were back at it, with four full days of practice and three days in the weight room. All of this was in preparation for the big weekend we just had.
First up was Tulane, a very good team, who we handled really well and were able to sweep. After the Green Wave, it was on to the Lobos of New Mexico. After a long battle, we were finally victorious 15-13 in the 5th game…. Talk about a nail biter!! But we were so happy to have so much support, even through the rough times. It really helps to have people behind you when not everything is going right. Lastly, Sunday we took on UTEP. Add in exhaustion from the day before and we found a hard time creating energy, but we focused in and finished with a sweep. After this weekend, we have extended our streak to 11-0 and moved into the record books for the best start to the season. We are all VERY happy with our start and can’t wait to get the Conference season under way.
So that moves me to today. The start of the week, and our final week of preparation before the real test begins. This weekend we take on USC and UCLA at home and we can’t wait to start the Conference season on our own court. We really hope to see you all there, wearing your best red and cheering hard for your Wildcats! We can use all the support we can get!!
Shout out to Tiffa! MVP of the past weekend! And Alanna and Elise, All tournament team selections!!
With that, this is #34 signing out!
