Her Last High School Volleyball Game?

My daughter Rebekah and her team are in the second round of the Section 1AAA volleyball tournament tonight vs. Rochester Mayo. The high school, not the Clinic.

The Austin girls are 15-9 on the year and seeded 6th. They are underdogs tonight and in any remaining matches this year, but they had a close loss (3-2) to Mayo last time.

We hope they play again on Wednesday, but we’re proud of Bekah and her teammates. And we have the whole gang of her siblings (at least the ones still at home) here with Lisa and me to cheer them on.

Update: The girls played hard tonight. They lost the first game and then came back to tie the match at 1-1 before losing the next two. There were tears all around as the seniors’ high school volleyball careers came to an end, but we also got some good news that Bekah and her teammate Jolene were nominated to play in a state all-star game in November.

And at least we still have basketball season coming!

  1. I’m sorry to hear they lost their game but at least Bekah was nominated to play in the all-star game. Congrats on that! Sports can provide so many life lessons. It can also bring families closer together. I wrote about how baseball and the World Series brings my dad and me closer.

    I always enjoy reading your posts!
