This past weekend we played Oregon and Oregon State and won both! Each game went to five sets and both were very exciting. Due to our successes this weekend, we are now ranked #22 in the country and tied for fourth in the Pac-12! This weekend will be very important in maintaining or moving up in the rankings as we play USC on Friday and UCLA on Sunday.
After our long week in Washington, it was nice to be able to spend some time at home in Berkeley. On Tuesday, we had our annual band dinner and had a great time at the band house. The whole team made the trip up to the north side of campus and enjoyed an awesome evening filled with pie, conversation, and even a tour of the house. I loved learning about the band’s traditions and daily activities and was especially surprised to find out how much time they all spent practicing and preparing for each performance. In addition to making new friends, it was great to be able to acknowledge their support at all our games, despite their busy schedules. As we all know, their presence makes a huge difference and is always much appreciated!
