Good afternoon. We had a historic day in Hershey on Saturday to cap a great weekend for the team. The school surprised the team with a send off on Friday. Brian said a few words on the team’s behalf before we headed on to Hershey.
From the moment we stepped into the van, the big difference I noticed with the group is that there was a certain level of calm and confidence. After checking into the hotel, we headed to the course for our workout: course preview, accelerations, drills, and stretch. The course preview went well as we went over strategy and how to attack each section.
After the main work was done, we went to dinner at our annual spot, Fabio’s. The last two years, we have had long wait times, but this year they seated us immediately. The team had fun at the dinner and talked about how they were excited for Saturday.
On Saturday, we were greeted by our loyal fans. Several people from the school traveled to Hershey to support the team. Our AD, Chad Walsh, brought several members of the team down to watch and support the rest of the squad. The volleyball coach and business manager, Katie Wheeler, and her son, Ben, also made the trip.
