So tonight is the last night of Reading Days, which means I’m writing this to procrastinate studying for midterms…jk but not really. Reading Days is essentially fall break at W&L, and we got this past Thursday and Friday off to catch up on work, sleep, and play tons of volleyball. Both years I’ve been here, our Reading Days involved long 10+ hour car rides to Tennessee and Kentucky. But this year, we got to stay within a 4 hour range and didn’t leave the state. As fun as bus rides are, the long ones can get exhausting. This year, we had games in Richmond and VA Beach, and we went 2-1 for the weekend. We had an intense win over Randolph-Macon in 5…the score of the fifth set was 16-18! We fought so hard and it was awesome to come out on top! Coming up, we have senior and Greek night on Tuesday, then two away weekends including one ODAC match and 3 matches against NCAA-ranked teams. We have lots of tough, competitive volleyball ahead of us, and it’s going to be awesome! It’s been an interesting couple weeks for me personally as I recently tore my ACL and meniscus. It’s a bummer not being able to play, but I really like being able to focus more on giving my teammates feedback and helping them get better. I also now watch tons more video with Coach, Taylor and Christina than I used to, and this has upped my volleyball IQ a lot already!
It’s unfortunately time to get back to writing midterm papers. Keep watching us because we’ll be doing big things these next few weeks!
