NEVENA STEFANOV - VOLLEYBALL
October 18, 2007
I like the fact that I can start every blog with the same sentence:
Another great weekend is behind UAB volleyball. We beat Marshall on Friday and East Carolina on Sunday - both were hard matches for us.
We spent lot of time on the bus and our concern was that the long ride might affect our game, but maybe this long trip gave us even more power.
We beat Marshall on its home floor in front of the cameras of CSTV and in front of a lot of people that were in attendance. That was a tough atmosphere to play in, especially when all the people expected Marshall to win. Luckily we were on fire, everybody just did their job. It was just such an emotional and amazing feeling for everyone to win that match.
The next day we spent most of the day on the bus, but instead of practicing when we got to Greenville, N.C., we just went to eat at Olive Garden and got good rest for ECU on Sunday. ECU is a very good team, but after beating Marshall, we just had enough pride and energy to extend our record to 16-6.
We have eight matches left until the Conference USA Tournament and just four home matches. Two of those four home matches are this Friday (7:00 p.m.) and Sunday (1:00 p.m.).
Houston is coming here on Friday and has won five matches in a row. I believe that we are the two hottest teams in the league at the moment. We had great practices this week and I think some great results are going to come this weekend.
Until next time,
