Congratulations to all of the girls for a job well done!
Anyone that was at the Cox Convention Center on Saturday afternoon watching Court 4 would have been extremely sympathetic. It seemed to all of the parents and coaches, that our girls were anything but ready for their first tournament of the season. We had seen them at the practices and KNEW they were capable of playing volleyball, but apparently, we forgot to tell the girls about their capabilities. In our first game, the 3 matches were just sad! In our second game, the girls were able to pull out 2 wins of the 3 matches. It wasn't pretty, but they had some success and it was enough to get them to the Silver bracket the next day. With the day over, the coaches and parents took the girls to eat and back to the hotel for some reflection and some GOOD laughs!
Something must have happened while the girls slept. Maybe the volleyball fairy came and sprinkled volleyball dust over them! On Sunday, they were a WHOLE new team. They showed up to play and it was amazing! This group of girls played like we all knew they could. They had some beautiful serves, sets, kills and overall play. It was amazing as a parent and fan to sit back and watch the transformation for these girls. They walked onto the court Sunday as volleyball players and they walked off as a team! They left their mark in Oklahoma City and started what will hopefully be a long run of success and improvements.
I know I speak for everyone when I say "thank you" to Chancey and Shawna! Your help was greatly appreciated! We wish you both luck with your team this season and look forward to seeing you at the gym.
We are looking forward to getting to know Bridgett and seeing our girls gain even more knowledge of the game.
Congrats again to the Silver Bracket CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!!
