Hey guys!! This past week has been quite a busy one, we just finished the first week of 20 hour weeks! We are all getting so much stronger in the weight room and faster on the court. This month we are challenging people on twitter to beat how many push ups we can do in one minute, beat any of us and post it on twitter tagging #StMUVballPushUpChallange and you get a free shirt!
Until next week,
Lauren Martinez, Fr. #9
We got a very nice Valentine’s Day surprise from the coaches. We got three new cute workout tanks and some yummy Valentines Day candies to snack on for the day since they also canceled afternoon practice. It was a great day!
Today we start our 20 hours of volleyball and we are very excited to be getting to play volleyball more! We have been working very hard in the weight room every one had been getting so much stronger. Today Channing and Tarine did 5 reps of 95-pound push press! Pretty impressive! We also announced our captains last week, Channing as captain and Amanda as co-captain. Both are excited for the new role and are looking forward to leading the team.
The Lady Rattlers have completed their third week of strength and conditioning! Although the ladies have been sore throughout the course of this off-season, they have been getting stronger and faster every single day. Every player has increased their weights in Squats, Hang Cleans and other exercises within the weight room. This upcoming Tuesday, the ladies will participate in the 3rd annual Spring Fling Chili Cook-off at St. Mary’s University’s Flex Field (4:00 p.m.). The volleyball team will create a unique chili recipe and compete with several other teams and organizations within the St. Mary’s community for the 2017 Chili Champ title! This fun-filled event will have other exciting activities to go along with the free chili. The team’s “Dye’n for Good Chili.” Theme will consist of everything tye-dye.
After this week, the volleyball team will begin team practices where they will be allowed to have more team training with the coaches.
