This week has been very exciting and busy. We raised money for our Dig Pink night on Friday and Saturday morning and sadly had our last home game for the year. We won our game and played for our two seniors, Megan and Rachael, as it was their last time playing home ever. We played OPSU and the third set were down like 18 to 24 them and ended up coming back and winning the third set to get the win. It was very exciting and it was a good way to end our last home game for the seniors.
This is from Saturday when we defeated OPSU. Lauren, Bree, and Shelley killing it in the front row.
We had so much fun decorating the gym for Dig Pink! We had made posters, hung up streamers, and blew up a lot of balloons, this was our before picture. We also tie dyed our shirts the day before our match and they turned out so good! Bree, Erin, and myself (Amanda) cheesing before our match against
LCU. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported St. Mary’s volleyball and the fight against breast cancer.
Here’s a picture of the two seniors before and after the match. Megan and Rachel had received gifts from the coaches that were pink elbow pads for Megan ‘s awesome diving and skills and a pink helmet for Rachael to wear at all times to avoid injury. It was hilarious and also seeing an old photo of Rachael rocking braids on the slide show topped it off. Also we cannot forget about Meg’s video of her doing pterodactyl, priceless. Meg and Rachael are great people, friends, teammates, students, and I am truly blessed to have played with them. They will truly be missed. But they will do amazing things in the future. This was the senior’s cake, had to get a picture, it was too cute.
