First Conference Weekend Down
Fairly pleased coming away 3-1 after our first SUNYAC weekend. Came up short against a tough Cortland team ranked 9th for a reason. But I’m very happy with how we bounced back against much improved Plattsburgh, Potsdam and Oneonta. Coming into the weekend all East teams had a winning percentage over .500. So we expected some very tough matches. Reading the results does not give the full impression of the weekend. Scores were very close, rallies were exciting, and nobody was going to win playing less than their best. Should make for an exciting Round 2 at our place in October.
Last weekend I had the privilege of attending our Hall of Fame ceremony and present Coach Joe Sagula, New Paltz alum and Head Women’s Volleyball Coach at the University of North Carolina for induction. What a cool opportunity! It was really nice getting to know him and seeing how honored he was to come back “home”. And to have someone at that level to share volleyball thoughts with was a blessing for me.
Off to Baruch on Wednesday and Hamilton College Saturday for 2 matches. Another exciting week of volleyball!
