Hey All,

We won our last match WOOHOO! We really need to win at least the next four match to secure the third place regular season position. So I am playing in the middle. I was actually contracted to play on the rightside as opposite. But I got here and they needed me to play middle. I was most disappointed because it seemed that the only way the I can play in the back court is as opposite. Although I have been very blessed to be one of the best in the middle, I really can’t complain…As you know one of our starting outsides went to compete in the Japanese V-league. With that news, my coach decided that it was time to put me on the rightside to strengthen our attack and allow me to hit from back row. We trained for about two weeks with me playing in the opposite position and then…. we lost a middle to injury! We’ve had bad luck this season with injuries. So back to the middle I go the day before our first match of the new year. But the catch is now I kind of get the best of playing in the middle????and playing back row. WOOOHOO. The libero goes in for the opposite, yeah, and I get to play defense and hit from the back row.

Well, we are off to Brasilia tomorrow.

Wish us well,
