We are the CHAMPIONS!!


This semester I have been playing on an intramural volleyball team and Charles and I are on a co-ed bball team. Today was eventful on both sides!! This morning our volleyball team went up to defend our undefeated record for the Championship. After 2 hard fought games.... we pulled it off. It was so fun, I felt kind of lame at how excited I was for the game this morning. For volleyball, we play best of 3. The first two games are to 25, win by two, or a cap at 30 for the win. The third game, if necessary is to 15. Since we were undefeated, and the other team already had a loss, we had the cushion that if we lost the first match, we could still have another go at them. We won the first game by a few points at 25. Game 2 was a battle. Charles said it was like watching Space Jams. The other team was pretty tall... we had ties at every point from about 17 to 30. We pulled out the win after a few sweet blocks at 30-29 and won the championship. Woohoo! It was so fun! Here is a pic of our team in our championship shirts.

Right after our vball victory... we had a match up to defend our coed basketball undefeated record in a regular season game. It was the first time we have had a challenge so far in the season. We held a lead through the first half, and the second half they started creeping back. We only had 3 girls- which you have to have 3 girls on the court, so we had no subs, and I was already really tired from the intense vball game. They took about a 5 point lead with only a few minutes left. We stayed with them fighting back, and it came down to the wire with 11 seconds left, we are down by three, and adam got fouled at the 3 pt line. He sunk all 3 ft's and they got the ball with 11 seconds- tied ball game folks. We got a foul called on the other end, and in the bonus- sent them to the line with 2.9 seconds left- still tied. She missed both free throws... we called a time out, and executed a play, but didn't get a shot off. And then found out... THEY DON'T DO OVERTIME!! Lame... anyway- still counts as a win! What a blast...
