Hey Wildcat fans! Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and a Happy Easter. The Sand Cats traveled to play in Santa Monica this past weekend for our last travel trip of the season! It is so crazy how fast the time has flown.

On Saturday we had team play against Cal Poly, Loyola Marymount and ASU. After earning a tight 3-2 victory to start the day against Cal Poly, we played incredibly well in the next two matches but couldn’t quite pick up the victories as we lost both matches 3-2.

Sunday was a great day for the Sand Cats. We came back strong from the defeats on Saturday and played some great volleyball. Each of our teams played the best I have ever seen them play. Ronni Lewis and I made it to the championship round against the USC #1 team. We played really well and fought hard but couldn’t pull through in the end. Even though it was a loss, we didn’t feel defeated. It was the furthest we’ve made it in a pairs competition this season so I was really proud of the end result. On a side note, I celebrated a birthday on Sunday and it was great to be able to spend Easter and my birthday with teammates that are like family to me, as well as have my parents there to celebrate. All in all it was a great weekend for the Sand Cats!

This Thursday we take a quick trip up to Tempe to compete against that school up North. Anyone up there who is able to come out and support the Cats definitely should!

On Saturday we will play in our last tournament of the season and it’s AT HOME! I hope everyone can come out and support us as we take on Boise State and No. 1-ranked USC.

That’s all I have for today Wildcat fans! I look forward to seeing everyone next weekend! Until then, BEARDOWN with pride!
