Tyra and I are excited to start this part of the tournament. We play at 5PM tonight against a small, but very scrappy and tenacious Canadian team. They are both around 5'6, but these girls can ball! We must play smart, ball-controlled volleyball on our side of the net. It will be a good challenge for us.
We keep talking about what would happen if these Canadian girls played Katie and Tracy Lindquist. We really want to see that match-up! We have asked several of the Americans who have seen both teams and everyone is split. It would surely be a very fun match to watch!
Unfortunately, Nick and Brad are matched up against Jake and Rosie so only one will advance to the round of 16. Big bummer when countries are matched against themselves at World Champs. They are playing right now as I am writing, so by the time you are reading this, the results will be in.
OK...gotta get ready to go kick some butt!
That is all for now...GO USA!!!
