NEVENA STEFANOV - VOLLEYBALL
October 10, 2007
Three more matches behind us and three more wins for the 2007 season.
Against Southern Miss, we started off a little slow. They led 2-0 in the match, but we came back after the 10-minute break with a totally different attitude and we played UAB volleyball again.
After our great win, we all went to the Green and Gold Room to celebrate Haylee's (Adkins) birthday. I must say that I was pleased with cake and ice cream, especially since we can't eat deserts before matches.
Now it's time to go on the road. We're going to Marshall and East Carolina this weekend. It is going to be an especially hard weekend. Our match at Marshall is another TV match and we can expect a great match with high intensity and a lot of competition.
We are once again struggling with injuries. Two of our best hitters, Casey (Dent) and Ica (Ivana Bozic) are in pain, but I hope they will be ready to go this weekend. They have such great impacts on this team. I hope you girls will recover fast!
There are just 10 matches left until the Conference USA Tournament. We can't wait to defend our title. Hopefully in a few weeks I will be able to write a blog where I can just say: Conference USA Champs 2007! But we have some great teams to get past before that can happen.
Talk to you next week with great news hopefully! Wish us luck!
