Today we are 7-0! We beat Thailand in four. Thailand was the first Asian team we have played against. They played well too. It seemed we would take off to a big lead as we opened up 4-0. They quickly caught up with strong serving. I tell you, I think that most teams strategy against USA is to serve tough. We wanted to serve them tough as well to slow down their offense, but we made a lot of errors. Playing against a shorter team is tricky. Usually they have very good defense, and very skilled attackers to try to irritate the block, by tooling it. In the end, our strength over powered them. Tay was unstoppable. Today’s match was good preparation for tomorrow’s match against Korea! And no all Asian teams are not short. They have several 6’2 players and one who is a bit taller than me!
Thanks for your prayers,
