Volleyball Tourney Results

So the results from the Center Court Snowball Volleyball tournament on Saturday were less than stellar.  In fact we didn't win a game, though not for lack of trying.  Our team captain who organized the ordeal didn't know that the level of competition would be so strong and well above a team that hadn't ever played together (us).  Add our newness as a team to the fact that many other teams were littered with former Division 1 college volleyball players, and were just outmatched from the get go.

I learned a few things about how to play indoor volleyball, the plays you run and such, so that was something to build upon.  I also learned that if the other team has 2 to 3 girls that are my height, the outcome may not be in our favor.  Seriously, there were some really tall girls there.  

We all had a great time though and will play together again in the league starting at the end of the month.  It was also a very entertaining and active way to spend a Saturday afternoon/evening, and though I missed both NFL playoff games, that was OK since they were both un-entertaining blowouts.  This weekend - Go Chargers!!!
