Florida volleyball

FSDB at First Baptist Christian Academy

Lady Dragons Volleyball ended the Crusaders in four games.

Tonight, the Lady Dragons played at First Baptist Christian Academy. We
arrived late due to the severe weather. We had to stay inside our school
buildings until
the severe weather alert expired. We finally left the campus around 4:45
PM. Our game began at 6:00 PM. We did not have enough to warm up.

Tonight, we had only six Varsity girls on the court. We dropped the first
set, 18-25. The game was not what our Lady Dragons wanted to play.
However, we were
fortunate to bring two young dragons who were motivated to step into
playing with our Varsity team. During the first game, our two baby dragons
observed and learned
their positions. They entered and did their part to help our girls playing
their game. We went on to win the next three games 25-23, 25-13, 25-11!

Our quote for tonight’s game was “We got this!” Yes, we definitely got

FSDB at Interachalen

Lady Dragon Volleyball falls tonight to Interlachen.

The Lady Dragons narrowly lost to Interlachen on Wednesday night. They
beat us in 3 games of a 5-game series.

During the first game, the Lady Dragons’ performance did not go as
planned. We made bad serves every time it was our turn to serve the ball.
We did not receive the
ball well. We made bad passes. Without good passes, we could not set and
attack them. It continued to lead us to a lot of mental and physical
mistakes. We finished
the game, 12-25.

Game two was a much different story. The Lady Dragons reduced the errors.
We increased our attack. There were a lot of back and forth long rallies.
We fought hard
for every point, but it came up a little bit short, 20-25. In the third
game, we played incredibly, but we were not able to come away with the
last few points to
win the game, 22-25.

Our loss is the way we can learn and improve before we can become a great
team. We will be sure to use each and every game to help us improve and
get where we want
to be.

random deafsports thoughts

Cheyenne Talbot (see above deaf athlete) was
said to be an All-American player at Monroe
College (NY) which is a 2-year program.

She actually was an All-American honorable
mention. Is it same thing as All-American?
