New Teraflex getting finishes touches. Part of the reason they’re still in Gym 1. Plus only one court where they usually use 3. May be in arena as early as Tuesday.
With summer school over, practices have switched 8:30-11:30 and 4-7. at least for now. Things always subject to change.
not much has changed in the routine. three-person rotating triangle trying to keep the ball in play as long as possible. So pass, set, hit one side to the other with players continually rotating positions clockwise so that everyone passes, sets hits. Watched Koelsch in particular. Her footwork has gotten really good, moving to the ball very quickly.
If there is an overall improvement from last week, I think it is in the solidness of everyone’s platform.
Couple of things I forgot to mention in Saturday’s post. Iosia gave the food blessing. She wasn’t expecting to do it, was only going to mention that the food was ready. Then someone called out, “Don’t forget about Grace.” DOVO Aven Lee was going to give it then all of a sudden Ionia started to pray. Surprised many but she did a nice job. Mentioned it to her today and she laughed, saying, “I know how to pray.”
Got to do more informal chats with some of the players I hadn’t chatted with yet. Ross said she worked a lot in her aunt Nohea Tano’s Bobo Tea Shop in Kailua. The California girls agree that people here don’t understand freeway driving. And they had begun to forget they were on an island. One asked about how far to the North Shore. Told them about an hour maybe on a good day. They thought that was nothing in California driving time. I told them one of the things I missed was California freeways.
