See these trophies! They're both mine!!! I'm so excited about them!!!
I play indoor beach volleyball twice a week. On Tuesday nights I'm in the Ice Maidens B grade team. The team consists of 4 gals and 2 fellas. Anyway, we managed to win our final (by the skin of our teeth) last week and then played in the Grand Final that night and won! So the reason I'm so excited is that this is the first trophy I've ever won in some 30+++ odd years of life.
Then Friday night's game was even more exciting as my team Hit & Hope (mixed - 3 gals & 3 fellas) had played in a number of grand finals and choked each time. (We were thinking of renaming ourselves The Chokers because of this.) At one point towards the end of the game, we were up by 10 points... in the end we won by 3!!! I thought I was never going to hear the wonderful words 'TIME'! But alas, we did and I have the trophy to prove that we won!
The extra special thing about this, is that I've never been in a regular sporting team until I took up volleyball 2 years ago. It's been an amazing experience for me being in a team, working together and having a lot of laughs (and a lot of sand in unmentionable places)!
