Hey, I've never done this before so here goes! I spent Friday and Saturday in Sheridan, Wyoming watching Kelly's High School Volleyball team play in the Regional Championship tournament. Our team struggled this year with one of our top players, who is 6'2", tearing her ACL and is out for the rest of the season. We came in ranked at the very bottom of the league, in 6th place. We weren't expected to win any games and kindof planned on going home after the first day. In order to continue on Saturday we would have had to win both our matches on Friday against two schools from Cheyenne--much bigger & more powerful schools than us. We packed our overnight bags just in case and encouraged the girls to play their best. Well, they did! They beat both Cheyenne schools in matches where they had to play the best of 5 games. This meant that they qualified for State which will be this weekend in Casper. We stayed the night and watched them play the number 2 ranked school (Sheridan--with a home court/crowd advantage) and they came close, but lost. They then beat one of the Cheyenne teams again to place third in the region! We're proud of them! Kelly has worked really hard this year and has improved a lot. We're looking forward to State and for her Senior season next year.
