Cincinnati NVL 2014
Hey guys! It’s been awhile since I wrote a blog post.
This past weekend I made a trip out to Mason, Ohio for The NVL Midwest Championship which was at the Beach Waterpark. I was very impressed with the venue, it was pretty awesome to be in the center of a giant waterpark.
Onto the volleyball, we ended up being the #6 seed in the qualifier I believe. Our first match we won in 2 pretty easily. The sand was jumpers sand so I actually could hit a little bit haha. Our second match we struggled to side out and lost in two. I ended up being very frustrated but looking back on it I learned again that I have to prepare much more & work much harder to get to the point where I want to be.
It all comes down to what time I put into the game before a tournament to determine how I do in a tournament and this time I didn’t put in enough time.
On the bright side, AL-B and the rest of the NVL crew was nice enough to let me be the MC for most of the weekend. I had such a good time getting on the microphone and commentating some good pro beach volleyball (obviously after the nerves went away).
Moving forward I am playing in the AVP Next in Scottsdale, Arizona this Saturday and possibly the Zuma open down in Malibu on Sunday. Hoping for a win on Saturday and hoping for a decent finish on Sunday after the drive and the long tournament on Saturday.
Leave some suggestions in the comments on what you’d like me to blog about. Hope you all are doing well 🙂
See you on the sand,
