Impressive Win

Nice victory over Gilroy, against some very skilled players. Absolutely worth the trip out there. Not to mention the bonus trip to In-n-out.
My favorite line from the game: "Uh, coach,... you have two number twos out there.."
Next up -  Palma. Last game of the season and final stop on the Derek Davidson Farewell tour. We'll meet up at 3:30 at the flagpole again & make sure everyone has a ride.
See you tomorrow.

Derek Davidson Tour Begins

While I was in Africa, Derek got busy and called a bunch of local coaches looking for games. This week, our final week of competition, are the two games Derek arranged. First up is Gilroy on Tuesday. Gilroy is the best team in the league and will be a challenge. On Thursday is Palma. Both games are away.
The Gilroy game on Tuesday begins at 5:00 p.m. If we leave shortly after school is out we should get there in plenty of time.
The Palma game also begins at 5:00.

Final Home Game

It's official - Monterey will come here on Friday (May 1) to play us at our gym. We've struggled getting home games this season, so I'm grateful to the Monterey team for coming over. They'd like to begin the game as early as possible; I'm shooting for 4:00 pm. Invite your friends, families, etc as it will be a nice opportunity to catch the Carmel Volleyball team in action.

Triple threat

Huge wins on Saturday! The format was changed at the last minute so that no winner was produced; but I'm pretty sure we would have won it. By the final match, we were a well-oiled machine, imposing our will on any and all opponents. Very good job!
Send me any pics you might have and I'll post them. See you at practice on Tuesday.

Tourney today

We'll be at Watsonville high school today. Games are at 10 and 11 with playoffs beginning at noon. Three rounds of playoffs & the tourney should be done by 3. Hopefully, we'll be in the last game.
Other teams are: Pacific Collegiate, Watsonville, Palma, San Benito, and Kings Academy.
See you there.

Last night's debacle has forced Derek to call today's practice "mandatory." Glad to know they switched from being voluntary.  But it's a good thing; we've still got a bunch of games in front of us, beginning tomorrow. In fact, we'll see the same team at tomorrow's tourney.
So today's practice will be thorough and tomorrow's outcome will be the opposite of last night's. Let's get ready.

Away game vs Pacific Collegiate

They came all the way here to play us a month ago so now it's our turn to go to their house. We'll leave immediately after school. It's in Santa Cruz; here's a map. The game should start at 5; I'm guessing we'll go best 3 out of 5.
See you tomorrow. Any questions give Mike a call.
