Taylor's Regional Tournament

Taylor has been playing club volleyball since December and her regional tournament was last Saturday. It was a busy day, we had to be to the gym by 7:15am. The first game started at 8am and the last game ended at 6pm. I don't even remember how many games we played, but it was a lot. The girls also had to help the head ref's by being side ref's for other games. The girls played some good games, the last game was the best. The team who wins two out of three games wins. Our team lost the first game by 2 points, won the second game and so we had to go to a 3rd. We started off OK and then we got behind. The score was 9-14, we had 9. You only play to 15 if you make it to a third game instead of your usual 25. Game point for the other team and Taylor's turn to serve, talk about pressure. Her serves were incredible. The other team called timeout a couple times trying to break her serve. It didn't work, she had so much power behind them that she brought the score 15-14. You have to win by two points. Well Taylor served again trying to get that 16 pt, she had a great serve but the other team returned, we returned back and so forth. This went on for a few minutes, but unfortunatley we ended up loosing 19-17. It was a good game and we are so proud of Taylor! It has been so fun watching her play this season!

Me and Taylor at the end of her tournament We didn't get home until almost 7pm. We were pooped, especially Taylor and the little girls. It was a long day for Alyssa and Mikayla. Jordan got kind of tired towards the end. The girls are use to going to tournaments, but a regular tournament last about 6 hours, regionals was a lot longer. The girls cheered for Taylor and her team, they were so supportive. Me and Clint about had a heart attach during the last game and I lost my voice by the end of the day, but we had a lot of fun!
