Fort Lauderdale - Update

Posted in [Volleyball] By Angie Akers

Fort Lauderdale was a fantastic event!  What a great way to start off the 2010 season!  2nd place and LIVE on ESPN2!  Tyra and I started the event with some jitters.  We lost in the third round and had to battle back one match at a time.  We played 4 matches each day and felt stronger and stronger as the tournament went on.

We had a few mental breakthrough matches, which was really great.  We beat Davis/Jordan in a tight 3 set match which marked the first time in 6 seasons that I beat this team.  (The last time was in 2004 Tempe, Arizona with partner Sarah Straton.)  The next big breakthrough was beating Kessy/Ross, defending World Champions, in 2 sets, 24-22, 21-8!  This was my first time beating this team in about 10 tries!

The weather held up all weekend until the Finals when it was a cold and rainy mess!  But we had so much fun that it did not matter one bit!

We are so excited for more great things to come!  Next up:  Santa Barbara AVP and then we hit the road for three FIVB international events!
