These next two weeks were packed full of Volleyball with a mid-week match each Wednesday, and tournaments on both weekends. We had some injuries, and some extenuating circumstances which saw Whitney and Lindsay both miss some matches. This put several people in different positions: Lexie played some middle, and so did Kate. Reisa played some outside, and do did Molly. Ollie played some right side, and some back row, and the team really came together and worked hard despite the situation on any given day.
The Williams match was a highlight of this time, despite losing 3-1. We came out strong and took the first game behind tough serving, and aggressive play at the net! We lost a squeaker in the 2nd 33-31, and that was a turning point in the match, I'm afraid. They got some confidence back, and switched some players around, and we couldn't quite get them out of system as much after that. It was a well-played match, and we felt good going into our last Conference weekend of the season against the CT teams.
This weekend was a tough one, and we knew that going in. We were hoping to win at least two matches, and expected to compete in all three. The only match we didn't really compete for was Wesleyan, and the other two were both lost in the 5th, by just a couple of points. We actually played very well, just not quite well enough at some key moments to pull out a victory, but it was a very good showing by the team.
This put us at the #7 seed for the tournament, and we were paired to play Williams at Amherst the following weekend.
