Those who hope in the Lord find their strength in Him!

October 16, 2017

As we approach the last month of volleyball some people might be getting tired, some Mom’s might be getting worn out from homeschooling, etc. Remember that we find our strength in the Lord! Anything good does not come from us alone but from Him! That means that He also is the One who enables us to do our daily tasks, love the person next to us or perform our skills on the court! It is only through HIM that we can do anything! Keep that in mind this week as you focus to please Him and do His will this week!

Special note about practices!

Tuesday’s practice will be an hour longer as the girls will be making posters in preparation for nationals!

Please remember to leave TVA better than we found it. Ladies please clean up all water bottles, juice bottles and volleyball’s after every practice. 

Note to parents: please do your best to pick your girls up on time. Katrina (the lady who opens the gym up for us in the morning) often needs to leave right after practice. If we have girls still there she can’t leave and that may conflict with her schedule. Thanks so much!

WARRIOR WEEK REPLAY

Varsity had 2 really exciting games last week! Both games went to 3..one was hard fought with a win in the end and the other they lost by 2! Way to fight to the end, girls!

JV had a busy week! Won their game earlier in the week then went to the TCBA Patriots tournament. There they took 3rd place and won the sportsmanship award! What a great weekend!

8AA is learning lots recently! They have seen their challenges but have had some very close games along the way! While they work on new rotations, trying out new positions and other things they continue to grow. 

8B played a really close game on Saturday that went to 3 games! It was hard fought but they couldn’t quite pull out the win. You’ll get them next time, ladies! 

6B had a very close game this weekend! It went to 3 games and they fought super hard! They just couldn’t pull out the wi but we are still very proud of them. =) Keep working hard ladies! We promise you that your hard work will pay off in time!

NEW Time/Day for the Volleyball Sports Banquet! 

We are trying something new to Warriors this year! We will have a Volleyball Banquet on Monday, November 20th at 6:30. It will be held at Millard Community Church (Off of 126th and Q St.) We are hoping this will allow for a shorter sports banquet! It will also be a better way for the girls to keep the memories from their seasons more alive/ exciting than to wait 5 months. 😉 

Volleyball Sports Banquet Slide Show Pictures Needed🏐📽😁

This year we are planning our Volleyball Sports Banquet for sometime in November.😁Due to this fact, I have a very limited time to make slide shows for every volleyball team and our seniors. 📷😁Your pictures are needed and appreciated as you take them. Our sports banquet for volleyball is tentatively set for November 20th!!

I’m looking for candid pictures, action shots from games or practice, pictures of the whole team, huddles, and pictures of the team just having fun! Selfies are great too;)

Please send me your favorite pictures to colorrunner02@gmail.com. If you would rather put your pictures on a flash drive or a CD, you can do that too. 

Thanks!
