Hi everyone! We now officially have the first week of season under our belts and I have to say, it went very well. From the first moment our team was together as a whole, it just felt right. The freshmen are fitting in extremely well, both on and off the court.
Day 1 was built around team meetings and goal setting for the year. We also logged in four days of practice last week, followed by a day and a half of team bonding and experientail training. Our coaches do an exceptional job of training us both as volleyball players and as young women.
It will be another full week of practice for us at Huff Hall this week, followed by the much anticipated Alumni Match this Saturday night. I'm predicting a very competitive match, as many recently graduated Illini players will be battling us on the court. All in all, it has been a very productive pre-season so far. The players and coaches are working extremely hard to ensure that this season is a memorable one.
