3rd of 3 qualifier tournaments this past weekend, gold division, seeded 4th in the 4 team pool. 3 way tie for 2nd with them all at 1-2. They got 2nd by game record tie-breaker. They'll play in division 2 (all the other 2nd place teams) in the GOLD division for the rest of the season tournaments.
Tried out for setter, and coach liked her enough to find me on day 1 of the tryout and say she wants her, probably run a 6-2. Then they have 3 other setters (including Madie from HS team), and no good middles, so Avery is playing MB (and training at practice as a setter).
Dabbling in beach volleyball on the off days from indoor practice.
Playing at Red's beach in downtown Carlsbad with the crew from Carlsbad HS team, Bob Sommers, etc.
Trying out for Carlsbad HS Boys' Volleyball team.
Tryouts started yesterday (Monday), and first round of cuts are tomorrow morning (list posted at school) before school. 27 boys there today for freshman/novice team.
Sounds like it's going pretty well.
Example athletics schedule today:
- Weights before aquatics
- Aquatics PE (period 2)
- PE (period 6), volleyball chapter in the class
- Volleyball tryouts 3-5pm.
Focused on Water Polo these days. Finished up the first season of tournaments, playing 12U white (2nd squad). Frustrated with the number of boys (6?) that doggie paddle their way through the games. Not surprising, since they do the same at practices.
Scored a few goals during the season: 1st one of career from near half pool, turn and score at hole set, and another lob shot over the goalie.
