Last night Erin found out that she made the cut for the Prairie HS Volleyball team (Freshman team)! She has only played VB one summer on an intramural team so she did not have much experience in playing VB outside of just for fun. She has been working hard this last month by attending a summer VB camp and then attended a week of (optional) preconditioning practice. These last two days have been intense with a 2 full day tryout session. (9-11:30 a.m., 1-4:30 p.m. and 6-8:30 pm). They had to attend all 3 sessions/day in order to be considered for the team. Needless to say, mom has spent her last two days busing her daughter to and from practice. This morning I volunteered to bus some of the team to a “team get-together”. Then this afternoon they will resume practice from 2-5 p.m. They will continue to practice the rest of this week through Saturday (9-noon and 2-5 p.m.) ending with a car wash from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday. Then next week they have a full week of practice with the same schedule as above. (9-noon and 2-5 p.m.)

Their first game is September 13, 2008 with Camas High School.

So, please join me in congratulating Erin on her accomplishment and all her hard work! I know she will do well and enjoy being on the team!
