Regular season coming to an end...

Last week we took down Pavia in an impressive 3-0 (25-18, 25-16, 25-15) win giving us a great deal of confidence leading into this Sunday's game against Busto.  Going into this final regular season game, we are in 2nd place, and need to come out with a victory to hold that position for playoffs.  In our first match against them, we lost a 5 set thriller.  So...we are looking for revenge.

To follow the match you can go to look for results on my team website...

Wish us luck...

I'm a bad blogger when....we lose....

So I haven't blogged since last week...guess why...we lost.  On Sunday we had a tough loss to Jesi.  Yes Jesi is a very good team, and had one of their best games this season...but...we still could have won and taken over 1st place. But in the big picture...better to lose now then in the future.  My Olympic teammate Heather Bown had a great game and led her team to victory.  It's always fun to see my American friends and teammates.  Hopefully we will bounce back this weekend against Pavia.  We still have a chance to take over 1st...but we just need to take one game at a time and play our game.

Villa Cortese vs. Jesi  21-25, 25-23, 25-15, 22-25, 14-16

Uhhhhhh....I hate looking at that score...oh well...on to the next one.

My first Football game

Two sundays ago I got to go to my first football game...not american football...but as we call it in the game.  Its amazing how we are the only ones that call it soccer, and it's amazing how the people in the states hardly care about the sport and it is the #1 sport in the world. Well...I got the opportunity to finally see why it is the most popular sport in the world.  Ronaldhino was absolutely incredible...Beckham wasn't bad for the eyes...and the whole experience was one to remember.

Here are some pictures from the game...

2 more wins...

Unfortunately I have been slacking once again on the updates.  Fortunately I have a lot to report...and all good news.  Two sundays ago we went on the road to Piacenza.  This team started out the season a little slow but were on a 3 game winning streak and were trying to get their 4th win against us.  We knew it was going to be a tough one...but luckily we pulled it out in 4 and got another W and 3 points added to our total.

And by looking at the scores it was not an easy one.  I was physically and mentally exhausted after that game...but was already looking ahead to our big match against the number 1 team Pesaro...and I'm sure now you want to know what happened with that one...

Well...after a very long week of practice (we started on monday instead of tuesday) Sunday finally came around and we felt very prepared for the big #1 vs #2 game.  In general for me every game is important and I try to play every game like it is the finals.  But this game really felt like a big one for many reasons.  The first reason already being stated, the 2nd reason is my Mom and Dad flew into town on Saturday and they are always with me for big games (ex. Gold Medal Match in Beijing 2008).  Along with having my Mom and Dad in town, my old friend Lindsay Kagawa & soon to be my agent was in attendance for the big match.

As we ran in to the gym to start our warm up...I was greeted by this huge sign done by my fans.

I have to be have that kind of support feels amazing.  Thank you to the fans of Villa Cortese.  Unfortunately...somehow my father failed to see the sign the whole match.  He said he was too concentrated on the game...good thing we have some pictures.

As I said team felt very prepared for the game and we went out there and proved just that.  Other then a little lapse in the 3rd might have been one of our best performances.

After the game I was awarded MVP, and received a glass platter that weighs about 40 I will get that home will be determined.  I was happy with my performance, and always happy when my parents get to see some good volleyball...hopefully next game they will see the same.  

Next up...Heather Bown and the #4 Jesi team come to our gym as we attempt to make our way to #1.
