Good evening, Knights fans! We’re back with our eighth (!!) weekly blog update with tons to fill you in on from our weekend and our upcoming week!
This past Friday, GSUVB put up a great fight and came out with an awesome win against SUNY POLY. It truly was a team effort for us to come away with this W and nothing feels better than a win like that!
While there’s no doubt that these Knights have a blast with each other each and every time we step into the gym, we decided to add some extra fun to our schedule at a Haunted Hayride this past Saturday night. Some were crying tears of fear, others tears of laughter, and some were too tough to shed any tears, but all in all we had a great night getting to spend some time together outside of the gym making memories we’ll always remember.
It was a busy weekend for the Knights as we also had our second annual Little Knights Camp yesterday! It was such a great day for us to share our knowledge of the game with young girls who will someday be the future of our sport, maybe even here at Geneseo! A huge thank you to all of our players for their wonderful work with the Little Knights and to the girls who came out to spend the afternoon with us. We hope to see you again in the spring!
This week is another busy one for GSUVB with our second annual Attacking Alzheimer’s Match right around the corner and our final round of SUNYAC Pool Play at SUNY Cortland this weekend.
Please check out the following blog post with all the information you need about our Attacking Alzheimer’s match this Wednesday 10/16 at 7PM! T-shirt sales are well-underway today and Wednesday from 11am-4pm in the Union as well as before/during the match. Our silent auction baskets will also be available for bidding Monday-Wednesday of this week right outside of the entryway to Schrader Gymnasium as well as before/during the match. ALL proceeds from these sales will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association as we try to do our part in making a difference in the Alzheimer’s community. We’re so excited for this event and we can’t wait to see you all come out and support us this Wednesday night! https://geneseovolleyball.wordpress.com/2016/10/14/attacking-alzheimers-match-1019-7pm/
After we do our part in helping our community, we’ll have one great practice on Thursday to get us ready for our final weekend of SUNYAC play against Oneonta, Buffalo State, and Cortland this weekend. As always, our goals remain the same—find a way to get better each and every time we step on the court and keep bringing the positive energy, positive communication, and steadfast support for our teammates. With all of that under our belts, only good things can come for GSUVB at SUNY Cortland this Friday and Saturday!
Once again, we thank all of our friends and family for their support so far this season and can’t wait to see you all this week! GO KNIGHTS!
