VOLLEYBALL BLOG WEEK 6: DESTINEE HARRISON
It is yours truly, bringing you the inside scoop on the Lady Bison. Where to start, where to start. This week was our bye week so the ladies rallied together to get out as much energy as we could into server receive drills and some intense defensive footwork. We have been doing a lot of competition drills amongst the team and you can surely see the intensity and concentration in everyone's eyes. Every now and then we might be fortunate enough to have Coach K step in a drill and get to hound him for EVERY error, the way he hounds us. No games this week, meant pushing our bodies to the limit and putting our brains to use.
Don't let the lack of van rides fool you. The team still manages to sing off key and definitely out of tune, making practice quite unordinary. If we are lucky enough, Coach K might even through in his "happy dance"; that man has no rhythm.
Despite our goofy moments, it's clear to see that we are learning a lot about each other, and about the game of volleyball. Our goal this week was to better our defensive game and limit our errors. Check. It's all about Facta Non Verba, a quote we now live by, and if I may say so myself, I see the Facta for sure! I believe we have come quite a long way from the beginning of our season, and as Rich says, "We've hit a ceiling and we have the talent to get past, but are we going to do it." Tune in this Friday for the our first home game against conference team Delaware State at 7:00pm in Burr Gymnasium to see if the Lady Bison have broken though the roof.
