It's been a pretty good weekend for Hayley's volleyball team! They had rough starts both days, losing their first match each day, but then came back to take the following two matches and place 2nd in their pools both days. They started the tournament as the #31 seed and they moved all the way up to the Top 10 Gold Division bracket today! Outstanding volleyball, girls! We have a match at 2:45 this afternoon and it is Single Elimination. Win or go home! That's the Beast, #1 Hayley, doing her thing at the net in the photo. Perhaps an explanation is in order, huh? Hayley's high school coach, Coach Kryger, has nicknamed her "The Beast" because she really is a beast at the net! (Hi Kryger!...thanks for bringing Sam and cheering us on yesterday!) So, wish them luck on the court today...they're in this to win!
In other Liebel sporting news, did you hear our Andrew get mentioned on ESPN this morning? Yep, after taking the Fullerton series this weekend, the Dirtbags of Long Beach State get to host their Regional! GO ANDREW!!!!
Have a great Memorial Day! =)
ETA: Well, we went home. Sadly, the team lost in two games to a tough team from Portland and ended up finishing tied for 9th out of 40 teams...not bad! They had a very good season overall though, and they should be proud of themselves!
