This weekend the team saw the end of the regular season by celebrating Senior Night during our last scheduled home match. It was great having a lot of friends and family to support us along with the many cookies, brownies and cupcakes that filled the locker room supplied by Mrs. Seifert and Mrs. Comfort.
We started off strong in the match jumping out to a lead but Saint Francis responded well and evened out the score. The rest of the match went the same way with Saint Francis keeping it fairly close, but we pulled out the win by taking three straight sets. All of the seniors got into the match and were recognized for their commitment and leadership over our volleyball careers. It was a lot of fun getting to play with Tor and Wolfy as well as Eddy towards the end of the third set because it hasn't happened all that much over our four years.
On Sunday afternoon the annual senior luncheon was held at the Nittany Lion Inn. The brunch spread was incredible, complete with an omelet bar. Harry Kauffman put together a great program where each of us seniors had a chance to speak to our teammates, coaches, and families as a group. It was a little nerve wracking at first but once the microphone was in my hand, figuratively, it turned out to be a lot of fun. Overall the weekend was a great success and I will always remember the memories and experiences I have shared with Tor, Ryan and Edgardo. This week we look to continue to work hard in practice and prepare ourselves for the EIVA tournament on Thursday.
