It was a hot weekend, but fortunately there was AC in the gym at Ramapo. Friday night we got off to a great start against Farmingdale, dominating the first set 25-11, hitting .385. The second set we still cruised to a 25-18 win despite hitting under .200. We may have let our focus slip away in the third set, and then to Farmingdale's credit, they responded with some renewed energy of their own, and won the 3rd set 25-23. After regrouping, we managed to end the match 25-20, again raising our hitting % back up to .258 for the win.
We often play late on Friday nights, mostly to reduce missed class time, but this time we played at 5pm, which allowed us to actually go out and eat at a restaurant afterward, which was great. Saturday was Sarah's birthday, and Sunday was Emma's birthday, so we celebrated with some flaming deserts offered by a parent, which was a very nice treat. We had a wonderful showing of parents and family there this weekend with two alums (and siblings) in the house with Lauren and Olivia both there, and then at least one parent from half the team, which was really fun! Sarah's dad was there as it was her 21st birthday, and Emma's mom made it for her birthday weekend also, along with parent(s) of Alice, Emily, Beth, Chellsa, and Gigi. Emily's trainer was also there again to see her play, along with his adorable daughter who gave Emily the biggest hug before the match!! Thank you for all of the support, parents and friends!
There was also some dancing going on in the gym on Saturday morning, and I even caught some on film, but I won't post that here--whatever they're practicing for, it's looking good, guys! :)
