What a Week!

On Saturday, I played with my pal Joley and we won the 18U P1440 Qualifier.  The wind was CRAZY so the volleyball film looks a little funny but we had a blast playing and overcoming the conditions. This week at school, I was inducted into the National Honor Society which is a great honor. Last weekend I played in Dallas with my friend Emilia and we took third in both tournaments — we were a little disappointed because we lost super tight games in both semi’s but overall, it was a great weekend.

USAV 18U National Bids Earned

Last weekend I had the opportunity to play with my great friend, Kristen Kleymeyer (HBU).  We only lost once all day and that was to the tournament winners and rock stars Katie & Camden.  We had fun playing together since it has been awhile so taking second place surrounded by great competition was a pretty good accomplishment.

First LSBVA Tournament

Another cold and rainy weekend in Dallas, TX but what a great tournament!  Chloe and I had a great time playing and placing in both the 16U (3rd) and 18U (2nd) age groups.  We loved all the goodies we got for winning our pools and for placing.  It sure made a cold day so much more fun than it would have been without volleyball!

Feb 23-24th Weekend

It was a fun weekend with my pal, Elle.  On Saturday we struggled a bit in the wind and cold and fell a little short with a 5th place finish.  But, on Sunday, we overcame a tough morning and landed in the finals of the AVP First competition in Dallas. We ended up 2nd and had some great wins and got better every game.

A Busy (and Cold) Winter

I haven’t written in awhile.  I have been playing every weekend, traveling to Dallas and California twice and attending some awesome camps. I’ve played with some great new partners and made some lifelong friends.  Elin and I (pictured above) earned our P1440 Gold bid in the freezing cold and had a blast!  But, I do have to say that I am looking forward to the warmer weather!  It was even cold, windy and rainy in Santa Monica in Feb which was unbelievable.  My partner, Kaitlyn and I persevered and did take 3rd in the silver bracket at the BVNE showcase but we were definitely not prepared for Cali’s weather to be so terrible.   Bring on the spring 🙂

ROX bid and 16U Champions

What a great day yesterday.  It was sunny and 70 degrees in San Antonio, TX which is always nice in December.  Canada and I played hard and ended up undefeated against a lot of really strong teams.  It was so much fun playing with Canada since we never played together before and it was even more fun hanging out in between games with so many of my great friends and partners.

Two AVP First Wins this Weekend

What a crazy weekend!  On Saturday, Gracey Campbell and I played in the beautiful 70 degree weather and had a great day, taking first place in Austin.  On Sunday, I went to San Antonio and played with my friend Emilia Guerra-Acuna and it was FREEZING!  We had a great day, battling hard to come out on top.  All I know is I am ready for some turkey!
