Volleyball Tournament CTPL

Over the weekend my volleyball team, Ajv 13 Red, went to CTPL–Central Texas Power League Tournament.

The first day–Saturday– I woke up at 5:50 because I had to leave my house at 6:00 to get there on time. We played three different teams at Benold Middle School in Georgetown. We won all three games and that meant we won our pool.

Since we won all three games we got to go in the next tournament at Georgetown High School the next day. And obviously the next morning I had to wake up at the same time…5:50.

The next morning I got there at 6:50 and we played against a another team and if we won against that team we would play in the Gold Pool. But if we lost we would play in the silver pool. Obviously…we won and we got to play in the Gold Pool. We waited three hours to play our next game. Finally we got to play, we played a higher team than my team at Ajv, but we beat them on the third set. And then that meant we would play for first place in the whole tournament!

We played in the afternoon and it was super stressful because we went to the third set. We were down 7 whole points and they were one away from winning, but then, we got the serve! And before you knew it we were tied with them. We were one away from winning. And then we scored the point! I was so excited and we got a gold metal. I’m so happy I got to play and win the tournament!

Basketball

Basketball season just ended for the West Ridge Wildcats. It wasn’t the best season (game wise) but it was super fun and everyone got a lot better. I liked basketball a lot except for the fact that we had to wake up every morning at 5:50 and run 16’s.

But anyways, we almost lost all our games and we lost our first game by 30 points. But throughout the season we got to know the team better and figured out what we had to do to win. We needed to focus a lot on defense, and that really worked!

Today we had our end of season party and we had doughnuts and other treats. We also did some scrimmaging today and I liked doing that a lot. It was so fun and I’m really sad the season is over. But I’m not doing basketball next year because it takes up way to much time and I like sleeping in. But hey track season is coming up and I’m super excited for that! I’m doing long jump, 400 meter relay, and I’m doing the 100 thing. I really wanted to do pole vault because I’m really good at pole vault and I wish it was an activity for school.
