While some people on the team (and Steve) thought it was the longest trip of their lives being a five hour trip, it was just another drive home for me. We got to Mechanicsville late that Friday night and there was my mom, the Slay's and Racibarskas' welcoming us. The next morning my mother, who is close to being the most wonderful person in the world, fixed us the best breakfast that I have ever seen. The girls had a field day and I was excited because I knew that I got to take any leftovers back to State College. It was weird seeing coach chilling on my front porch and I was certain that my above normal heighted teammates wouldn't fit in my house but somehow it happened. We got to my high school and it was just a blast from the past. Some of my former teachers and teammates stopped by as well as anyone who has been a part of my volleyball career. We played some really competitive drills and it was really great to play in my old high school gym. It was nice to finally play someone besides ourselves and UNC is a great team. I love watching our team make such big strides and that's what the spring is all about. We're getting better and I can't wait to see what the rest of the spring has in store for us.
