A few weeks ago I circled August 24th on my calendar. TC Roberson was coming to West Henderson for what is now a conference match. TC is a very strong program, and this year is playing better than ever. West is a very loaded and dominating team, but young and learning. These two teams are now playing each other multiple times in a year, and if tonight is any indication of what is to come, then every single game will be a classic. Tonight I saw what was the best volleyball game I’ve ever seen. These two teams battled for every point, and they played hard. Volleys lasted 4-5 times longer than “normal”, and balls that would normally fall for either team against others refused to die. It was simply an amazing performance by both teams. In the end, West came up on top, winning in 5 sets.
The JV game was every bit as exciting. I missed the first set, but the second set saw the Falcons falling behind early in the game, and then rallying to get the victory in two sets.
It was an amazing night of volleyball, and I’m so glad I was able to make it over to see these young women play.
