Sports update for the week.

If you saw my Wordless Wednesday post this week, you know that Princess started the Jr High volleyball season on Monday.

This week we had 3 games Monday night at home and then Wednesday and Thursday away.. I almost feel bad for our poor 7th grade team.. They lost all 3 games.. But went down fighting there were no blow outs and all 3 were very close..
For those who don't know volleyball the game is called a match and you have to win two sets to win the match a set would be a volleyball game to 25 so you have to win two of those to win the match.

Here is a pic of Princess from Wednesday game
For our girls this week they played 3 sets in each match. For all 3 Monday, Wednesday and Thursday Our team lost the 1st set, came back and won the 2nd set, the almost won the 3rd set but ended up losing it in the end.. :(
But on a plus side they are improving alot and they seem to be coming together as a team learning how each other play and talking more and making more plays.. So I'm sure they will just keep getting better.
Thankfully the girls aren't letting this get to them.. because they are still having a blast together at these games.
Say hello to the 2008 7th grade team. (in the middle is there ball girl)You all played well this week, looking forward to a wonderful season.

It's good to hear they aren't getting discouraged. You have to work out the kinks first.

This will just cause those other teams to underestimate them ;)
