NEVENA STEFANOV - VOLLEYBALL
October 3, 2007
Wow!! What a great match last Sunday against Memphis. As I said last week, there is no sweeter victory than beating Memphis. I'm so proud to say that we played fantastic. Memphis is hard to beat - they were also our conference championship match opponent from 2006.
This past week was definitely great for our program. Against Mercer, we had a lot of career highs and against Memphis we improved our blocking, finishing with 11 blocks in just three games. We worked hard for these big victories, and I am extremely happy every time that work pays off.
This week, I received an award from the conference as "setter of the week." I must say that this award is just proof that the conference is paying attention to our performance. It shows that our passing is at as high level as our hitting.
We have to work even harder this week because we have another big test. On Friday, we play UCF and on Sunday we play Southern Miss. Both teams are very good and it is extremely important for us to go 2-0 next weekend while we are playing at home. When we gain a few wins in a row, we just need to learn to maintain that emotion and that spark.
Time is flying and even though I feel like we just started, there is only six weeks left until the conference tournament. I think this team is good enough to stay on the right track and keep winning and preparing well for the conference tournament.
I'm ready to go to my class now and get some work done. Until next week, your #13
