Try and Get Past me, I Dare You

Posted by

Getting past me is something that was very hard for four years, if you were playing against me on the volleyball court. Blocking has always been my favorite part of the game of volleyball and I don’t think I am happier than after blocking some annoying girl on the other side of the net. It pretty much is the ultimate defeat, and when I block her again I just lose all control and get way too excited. While yes blocking can be mentally challenging because it is just you against the hitter, winning the battle is all that more rewarding.

For someone who is a numbers girls, I can honestly say that I never kept track of how many blocks  I had throughout my career, I just focused more on a game by game status. It wasn’t until my season was over that I found out that I made a huge impact on the program, and I ended up being third in career blocks out of every person who has played volleyball at Mary Washington. What an impact. To think that I was just a scared little freshman who was way over her head into someone who will have her name in the stats for a while (I hope). That for sure was my greatest accomplishment. So, to best represent this in picture form, I picked one of my favorite pictures of me during one of my first strong blocking games.

Pure Joy

What can I say? No one messes with a princess.
