Last Practice of Summer Tonight!

Hey all.  Tonight (July 26) will be the last practice session for our summer season.   Hope to see you there.  Please keep checking our website for information on tryouts coming up in August and maybe a few strength & conditioning workouts leading up to tryouts.

Summer League Wrap Up!

Think about where our program was this same time last year and I can tell you there has already been a great step forward in our development to building a successful volleyball program at Beamer!  Personally, I don’t judge how the Fall Season will go based on summer league, but I’m excited and pleased with how we have competed and how our program has developed over the off-season.

We wrapped up the final day of summer league going undefeated 2-0.  We beat Auburn 2-1 (25-22, 22-25, 15-11) and then beat Kentwood 2-1 (14-25, 25-14,25-15).  We were able to compose ourselves at key moments in both matches and had some very nice performances by some of our incoming freshmen players.  (Great work Chloe, Gwen, Kelsey, Brianna, Titi, Britney, Camryn & MaKenna!)

Overall, Beamer wrapped up the 2012 summer league finishing with a 16-2 match record!  Which is great considering last year we probably finished with a 6-10 record.  We are doing a better job at competing and learning how to win the games that we should.  Congrats to everyone that participated in Summer League this year and looking forward to promising fall season!


Summer League Day 7

Last night we ended up going 2-1 in our match play, with a 2-1 victory over Kentwood (25-21, 25-13, 13-15) and 3-0 victory over Chief Sealth (25-9, 25-12, 15-7) but then gave up our first 0-3 loss of the summer to Tahoma (24-26, 14-25, 7-15).  Not too bad when you put it all into perspective, we had (3) incoming freshmen last night, two of them playing high school summer league for the 1st time.  One more night of summer league left!  Nice work, Kelsey, Gwen, Tabi, Chloe, Bri, Kat, MaKenna, Camryn and Leena.

Summer League Day 5 & 6

We returned to summer league this week with a bang.  We beat Auburn 2-1 (25-22, 18-25, 17-16), then split with Kentwood 1-1 (16-25, 27-25), then beat Chief Sealth 2-1 (25-7, 25-14, 12-15) on Monday.  Tonight we played with only 5 players and still went 3-0 against Tahoma (25-14, 25-15, 25-16), and 3-0 against Auburn (25-22, 25-17, 15-9).
