End of another volleyball season

We had our last tournament this weekend to end my fourth season as a J.O. volleyball coach. This one is hard to let go of because it was easily the sweetest bunch of girls I've ever had. I never had any conflicts with them, they never had significant issues with each other and overall they were just great kids.

We ended up somewhere in the middle third of the 17 open ranks. I would've loved to have been higher, but this was the most competitive year I've seen yet. We had something like ten (out of 29) teams qualify for nationals. Really tough region this year.

Regardless, every kid ended better than they started, and I expect they'll be well ahead of their teammates on their high school teams. They embraced and executed my offense really well. My setter is easily the best I've ever coached, and we got to be pretty close. Kind of like a little sister.

Good times though. I'll take away a lot of great memories from this season.
