We are headed to Wisconsin! Sunday night, the entire team met at the Cal Volleyball offices at 6:30 p.m. to watch the NCAA Selection Show. As a senior, watching the show with all my teammates has become one of my favorite parts of the season. It is so exciting to find out where everyone is going and who they are playing.
This year marks the 12th straight year the Bears have made it to the tournament. As the NCAA committee would have it, we are playing UNC in the first round for the third year in a row. Personally, I am very excited to have the opportunity to redeem ourselves after the past two years. We have two good days of practice before leaving early on Wednesday, and I am excited to be one of the 64 teams that have the chance to compete for a national championship.
Before the brackets were out, the whole team played another game of mafia while also predicting where we would soon be headed. The team was all convinced that we would be going to Hawaii or Missouri, so it was a surprise to see Wisconsin. After everything was set, we all began planning ahead and are all very thrilled that we have the chance to wear our parkas and see snow! We are all so excited to see what this experience will hold for us! Go Bears!
