Volleyball

DSC02453The Inter-Institutional Athletic Competition continued yesterday with the volleyball competition.  We arrived at just a little before 9:00 for a competition that was supposed to start at 9:00 (see previous story on the bus). It was our job to provide the snacks for the day so our students hustled around and took 12 watermelons, 100 oranges, and 200 bananas into the kitchen and then found our team area.

I guess there was no real need to hurry, we waited until about 9:40 for the officials to arrive, at which time the team from Cadets still had not arrived.  At about 10:15 we decided to begin the competition hoping that the Cadets would show in time to play their game. It was about 10:30 before the first game started.  I seemed to be the only one stressed about it.

Our team had a tough day.  We had some residual effects from some troubles at school the day before (a story that I’m still trying to decide whether or not its wise to share with you) so we played without much enthusiasm and lost the first set 2 games to zero.

There were 4 teams in the competition and we played a round robin, playing each of the other teams before the day was over.  We played pretty well against the second team and were ahead for a while but ended up losing. Our last game was against the best team and we had just run out of steam by then.  The last game was pretty ugly.

We were in a foul mood when we got on the bus but an hours ride home kind of let all of that work its way out of our system and the mood was better when we arrived back at school.

Next up is basketball. We have one month to prepare for that. I’ll keep you posted.
