Second leg down. Wake up time 3:33 am to start another 26 hour travel day! Good bye Warclow, Poland and Kate our wonderful translator. Also we had to say good bye to coach Li, Gen-san and Angie. They are heading back to C. Springs while Tom and Robyn will join us in Chinese Taipei.
Well, the time went by quickly. Especially with my friends Marta and Mattia from Italy visiting. We won all three matches, finishing first in our second week of the Grand Prix preliminary play. And actually we moved to second overall. Right now we are looking pretty good for making the final round hosted in Yokahoma, Japan. The finalist will be top five plus Japan. The final match of the weekend was quite a fun match playing Poland in front of their home crowd. There were red and white banners and cards being waved all around the arena and then the one lone but large USA flag. Yeah, GO USA! The crowd was not to be quieted even as we dominated the match. I scored on 8 of my 9 attempts and had two blocks. Heather was named MVP. Yesterday Kim G was named MVP and Friday’s match Lindsay was the MVP.
This week we will play Poland, Turkey and Italy. Our team seems to be improving. Italy will be a challenge and measure as to how much we’ve improved and what else we need to work on as we approach the finals.
I have a few pictures I would like to post but they are too large for my website. I will have to see if I can have the size maximum increased.
Blessing to ya,
