No More Two-A-Days!

We’re all done with two-a-days! We all can’t believe how fast they went by this year, but we’re not complaining that they are over either. Everyone is playing very well and competing well. The chemistry on this team is excellent and we are all getting very excited for the games to start.

On Friday after practice we left for Park City for our little retreat. We stayed at the Andrus’ lovely home. When we first arrived we all walked on Main Street for a while and then met up for dinner. After dinner we made our way over to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (this is what I had been waiting for all day) and we all got a treat. Most of us got the “apple pie” caramel apple, which was very good. After this we went back to the house and the real fun began.

Freshman initiation is a great thing. Everyone has to go through it--it’s just the way of life for a team. It is fun for both parties—most of the time—and it brings the team closer together. Woke up the next morning and had a fabulous breakfast. Chef Shawn made us breakfast burritos that were delicious. We then had our team meeting, which got us all extremely pumped for everything to start. We set some great goals for ourselves and are all very motivated to reach them. After meetings we all went down the Alpine Slide. It was so fun! We had a great time and created some good memories.

We are all looking forward to another great week of volleyball. We have our Blue and White game on Tuesday and then we leave for Missouri this weekend!
