It was an up and down tournament for the Beamer Titans at the Bethel Friendship tournament on Saturday. When we passed well we looked like we were among the best teams in the tournament field, but when we didn’t we found ourselves looking very inexperienced and disarrayed. We finished the tournament with a 7-9 set record. We split sets with Bethel, Fife, Mt. Spokane, Wilson and Penninsula. We beat Heritage 2-0, and lost to Puyallup & University (0-2). Our best match of the day was against powerhouse Puyallup – the defending SPSL South Champion, where we passed serve well, hit well, and played our most inspired volleyball of the day! We learned that if we are able to adjust our attitude about passing and establish our will to compete – we are able to play with some of the best teams in our league. We fell just short losing both sets to Puyallup 22-25, 22-25. It was a tough tournament for us overall but we learned some valuable lessons about our team that will make us better!
