Greetings, loyal Valpo followers! This blog update is being brought to you by the one and only Katie duo on the volleyball team here at Valparaiso, Katie Britton and Katie Layman. A sophomore and junior respectively, we have been selected to update this blog in order to provide some insight into the life of a student athlete here at VU. With the start of classes, evening practices, and our preseason tournaments, we’ve had quite a few activities to keep us occupied. We worked hard over the summer to prepare for the season, and are starting to really come together as a team to get some wins under our belt before the start of our regular season! Two weekends ago, we spent our very first tournament weekend in the Sunshine State. We faced some big and tough teams, and as a team got our first taste of competition for the year. After the tourney, we were even lucky enough to spend a day at Universal Studios before coming home and preparing for our next packed week. Last weekend in Iowa, we went 3 and 1 against some great competition and had two girls named to the all-tournament team. People have come to expect great things from Valpo Volleyball, and we are practicing hard this week to have another successful weekend at the Saluki Invitational in Illinois. We are so excited to begin our conference play, Horizon League Championships, here we come!! Until next time, world wide web.
