2019 recap

When 15 Silver began practicing in February, It seemed as though half the team wanted to set and half the team wanted to play libero - some even wanted to do both. 
At our first tournament, we started out really rocky. We lost our first two matches on serves and poor passes alone. Then, after a short break, the girls came back and ended up winning their last two matches to take 1st place in the F1 bracket at Lindsey Wilson so I took the girls out for ice cream!
 
We closed out our season with the Southern Swing in BG. Saturday our first match was against 15 Black and the score does not depict how well Silver played in that game. My girls were receiving some very hard driven balls, they were pulling bad passes back onto the court, they were getting most of their serves over and even getting some blocks. I was thoroughly impressed. During our second match our setter again somehow hit her head on another players knee and sat the rest of the game in fear of more whiplash. Both her and her mother said she was fine and so we played her in the third and fourth match and had some of the best sets I’d seen all season from her. With our tall middle still out on her knee injury, we pulled our backups setter to middle and put one of our outsides as a right side. The middle struggled a bit but the outside turned right side excelled. This tournament gave her the confidence to try out for her high school team after not making it onto her 8th grade team last year. The backup middle also seemed to be really beneficial in that position for the fact that when the setter took first ball, she was right there to take second ball without hesitation. The tournament showed how well our girls had changed in working together and following each other to continue play. The second day we had BRAVO 15 Red in our bracket again but instead of backing down, Silver seemed to give them a run for their money.
 
As a whole the entire team became more consistent in all areas. One of the greatest things about my team this season was that all of the girls just wanted to play the sport they love. We had no major problems and no clashing because everyone was just playing to have fun and better themselves. I also had an amazing group of parents who I wouldn’t trade for the world.
 
I’d also like to thank Nicole Whitson for allowing me to be a part of 15 Black in the beginning. I feel like I learned a lot about BRAVO and about the different skills from watching her run her practices before starting with Silver.

Lady Topper Volleyball Camps at Western Kentucky University offer an opportunity for players to receive valuable instruction on the fundamental skills of volleyball. Campers will be made aware of the characteristics that define successful players. Organized games between campers will provide a competitive outlet after specific drills have been practiced. Contests built into drills capture the learner’s attention, which results in attentive practice.

Drill progressions will be aimed towards recognizing and developing good habits in all aspects of the game. General courtesy, respect for teammates and opponents and the importance of hard work will be taught to the campers through example by the Hilltopper coaches.
