Volleyball - Game 6

Wow, I wish I could get my team to turn on their serving in practice as well as they do in games. They were awesome last night. As a team they only missed 9 serves in three games and 4 of those were overhand serves by ladies that are still learning to float serve.

They won the first game 25 to 12 and then had a bit of a let down in the serve recieve department in the second game. At one stretch the opposing team severed 9 staight on us. Fortunately my players were able to get back on track and finally squeek out a 25-22 victory.

This win moves them to 5-1 on the season. Unfortunately we don't get to play the one team we lost to again. But we did learn last night that they suffered their first loss of the season. So we both have 5-1 records now. Unfortunately in any normal tie breaker scenario we would come out second because we lost to them head to head. But the good side is this is a fun league and they don't even track the wins and losses. There is no post season tournement in this division, no trophys, etc. So the only people who are really tracking the wins and losses are a couple of us coaches who use them for some friendly trash talking when our players aren't around.
