I almost can't believe that I'm sitting here and writing my third blog! Time is passing so quickly and of course there are more matches behind us.
On Thursday, we flew to New Orleans where we had practice and then had about two hours after practice to walk down Bourbon Street. We absolutely love to go go New Orleans - it's fun to just walk around and be surrounded by the crowd. That city is different than any other we travel to. It's a great time for team pictures and relaxing, which is really hard to get during fall.
On Friday, we played Tulane. Unfortunately we lost but I think there will be time in the future for revenge.
On Sunday, we had our home opener against UTEP. We won this match and even though we lacked emotion, there were some great things that day. Four of our players finished with double-figures in kills, while we had 93 digs as a team.
I can't deny that we had some struggles in the first part of the season, but I think from here on out things will get better and better.
We play Memphis (our first TV match of the season) on Sunday. I cannot wait for that match especially since I missed our first game against them a little bit over two weeks ago. That is going to be a brilliant game that we all are looking forward to playing. They are definitely our favorite rivals. There is no better thing in the world than the feeling after you win that match. We hope we have that feeling on Sunday in Bartow! If you all want to share our adrenalin, come and enjoy great volleyball Sunday at 1 p.m. at Bartow Arena!
