Hey Bobcat fans… What’s going on? It’s April 21st and the Volleyball Bobcats have officially ended their spring playing schedule. We had four play dates, and even with limited numbers we saw some really good things. We were very competitive with Texas, beat SLC opponent Sam Houston and then we had some fun matches against UTSA, St. Ed’s and Blinn just to name a few. Some young players got to play a lot and get the experience they will need for this fall. Some of our recovering from injury players actually got to be on the court and compete.
Compete was the word of the spring. We really wanted to work our mental side of the game and make sure every time we stepped on the floor we were competing with Bobcat desire. It didn’t matter who was across the net from us, we were always going to be the same team. It was definitely a learning experience for us all and I think it has prepared us for this coming fall- and our quest for the last SLC championship!!
We are two weeks away from the semester coming to a close and sending the team home for Summer! Actually most of the Bobcats are sticking around town to work out together and keep preparing for the fall, which is always exciting for a coach to hear. Keep the team in your thoughts and prayers as they prepare for finals, they are making a strong push to keep those grades up to Texas State standards.
On a personal note- boot camp started and I’m in pain just writing this. I know this is going to benefit me and make for a healthy lifestyle… blah blah blah, I’m SORE!!!! No really it has been a great experience and baseball coach Ty Harrington’s lovely wife Leila is joining me on Monday and Wednesday’s which is making it a lot of fun. We are pushing each other and more importantly laughing at each other as we go.
Well, I am off to Baltimore for the weekend with my club volleyball team. I’m excited for the Inner Harbor which has some great restaurants and entertainment, namely Cheesecake Factory. The diet will be off for a slice of cheesecake, no doubt!!! Sunday is Easter and I hope you all enjoy a blessed day with your family and friends. As always, remember to keep supporting your Bobcats on and off the court, we love all the support.
Eat ‘em Up!
