Well, we are out of the fight for the Seria A1 championship. We lost the best of three series against Novara 1-2. After a grand performance on our home court, I was left hopeful, actually rather certain that we would win on Wednesday. We fought to win the first set. But after that could not put together a solid set. We went on to loss the follow three sets.
But all is not lost. Well, for the championship yes….however we are now competing in the League Cup. Competing in this cup are the four teams that did not advance to the semi finals plus the four teams that finished ninth and tenth place during regular season. We won our first match against Forli in four. I finished the match incredibly hitting 100% in attack! 14 for 14 and six blocks! Praise God for such and outstanding performance. I’m sharing these stats because I don’t think I’ve before hit 100%. I am very happy about it.
Anyway, enough about that… We will play on Saturday at home against Vicenza. With that win we will advance to the best of three finals of the League Cup.
HAPPY EASTER! It has been a wonderful day. My mom and I went to church and celebrated the risen Christ Jesus, leaving renewed in spirit. Then we went to have lunch with my Italian family.
Tomorrow I will go to the mountains with them, after taking my mom to the airport. BOO! My mommy is leaving. But I really enjoyed her. Unfortunately my dad wasn’t able to visit this season. Hopefully this summer maybe he will come out to Colorado while I am training with the National team.
That’s it for now.
