Last Wednesday, we had practice time, and it was actually all right. Though I had some spectacular fails, I did actually hit the ball several times, and I even hit it over the net many times.
But tonight was the big night. The actual game against actual opponents. I was on Team A - the first BOE team to play. We played against the General Affairs Division. I took my spot on the court with overwhelming trepidation. Well, we won the first match! And I did have some spectacular misses and some decent hits. Then, we changed sides on the court, and we lost over there. So then we changed back for our third match (set?), and we won the game! Yay! I was actually a bit shaken when we got off the court.
Team B lost their game against the department that does buildings, but Team C won their game against the local policy people. I had fun cheering for those games. Afterwards, we went out and had a party. I think the volleyball was just an excuse for a party. If I understood correctly, it seems that I have been selected to play again on Thursday. Gulp. Are you guys sure about that?
Anyway, it was a scary, but fun, experience! And I have finally been on a winning volleyball team! Yay!
