An evening with DCHS Girls Varsity Volleyball what FUN

I'm sure that I've mentioned somewhere along the way that Lindsey, our daughter
the ultimate dream student, Thrasher Hockey Fan, Spanish major, High School Spanish Teacher is also the Girls Varsity Volleyball Coach at DCHS. There is no denying that she adores what she does ~ no denying the passion displayed every step of the way.
Being a bit of a journey from home I try to make at least one game each season and did just that on Tuesday evening. What fun! I was thrilled to have the opportunity to not only see the girls, take them each a little treat bag (even the Coach got a hAlLoWeEn treat bucket) and, get to see the team in action. This team features 9 Seniors who are playing at the high school level for their last season brought back so many memories of those last high school years for our children. Can't help but miss those times filled with anticipation of the next leg of their journeys.

DCHS girls varsity volleyball has been written about in the local papers and it was easy to see why. Even the coaches birthday was the headline of a recent article "Let them eat Cupcakes" ~ a reward for the team when they won the night before Lindsey's birthday and enjoyed cupcakes at the next practice to celebrate. Another article mentioned several Seniors on the team for their superior play ~ but that wasn't the focus on the court during the game I saw this week. They showed perfect sportsmanship, team work, communication, appreciation, and hustle. Easy to see that all of these girls have bright rewarding futures ahead whether returning for another season on the high school varsity court or pursuing their dreams in college and beyond. Sad, to be someone unknown sitting watching an exciting game and hear parents from the other team boosting and bashing. Even sadder to witness coaches showing unsportsmanlike conduct, screaming & yelling even to the point of little hissy fits. Really...!

Realizing that Coach Moon stops by her Mom's little blog every once in a while I thought she'd like to see her team here amongst those things vintage. It's no secret ~ I'm certainly proud of her many accomplishments (even those on the volleyball court with these talented athletic
high school girls).

For these special young lady athletes ~ I'm so glad I got to see you all in action.
I wish each one of you only the best not only in the remainder of this volleyball season & school year but in your next steps in the journey of your lives.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
