So much has happened in the past few weeks, and I will be catching all of you up (sorry for my delay, team)!! Over the first weekend of November, the generals travelled to Atlanta, GA for the annual Emory tournament. We faced some really tough competition, but played great and this definitely challenged us to improve our game. The highlight was taking a strong set off of Emory! During the next week, we travelled to Bridgewater to play them in the first round of ODACS and won! The gym was the ultimate competitive environment, and I’m so proud of us for coming away with a win on the road. This past weekend, unfortunately we fell to Randolph-Macon in the semi-finals of the ODAC tournament. We fought really hard, and I know everyone is so proud of our efforts and all the dedication the seniors have given to our program. Despite some bumps along the way, overall, we had a really great season and it gave us great things to look forward to building on next year. I think everyone grew tremendously in their positions, and we had excellent team chemistry that will be hard to recreate. But, now it is time for each of us to take some time off from volleyball, catch up on classes, and look forward to the coming holiday season.
This past weekend, W&L had its Presidential Gala that happens once every four years with the election cycle, and members of the volleyball team got to get together, get all dressed up, and have a great time tearing it up on the dance floor. Everyone looked absolutely stunning as well! But, now with my time off I am looking forward to spending time with a lot of my friends who will soon be going abroad for the winter term and working on a lot of my end of the semester projects and papers. I feel like this semester absolutely flew by, and I am looking forward for what is to come!
