Back to 6 a.m. practice, as it will be Wednesday and Thursday.
Done around 8:15. They finish early on Tuesdays because of 9 a.m. classes for many.
Magill was out for the most part. She is getting an MRI later day. They’re not sure what’s wrong yet. She helped with blocking drills, using two of the long noodles people you use in a pool.
Anderson was out sick. Mendoza had an appointment so wasn’t there either. The remaining 3 DSs did a lot of serve and pass to each other.
Nothing new on Taylor other than she had to keep readjusting her brace. Greeley didn’t seem to be 100 percent, had one of those ankle strap things on her left foot.
Lot of reps for everyone today. Higgins working on her connection with Maglio and Adolpho on back sets, as well as to the right-side hitters.
They’re looking forward to the clinic and scrimmage on Molokai Saturday. Adolpho said she expects a large turnout.
Responding to WF’s post from Sunday about Emma Smith, Mira Costa, committing for 2016.
She is more of a sand recruit but looks like she’s walking on for both.
And kind of surprised at this, based on one match
From the Big West:
A day after earning Big West Women’s Volleyball Player of the Week, Long Beach State’s Bre Mackie collected another award, this time being tabbed Sports Imports/AVCA National Player of the Week. This marks the first national honor for a Big West athlete this season and the ninth time a student-athlete from Long Beach State has garnered Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week honors, with the most recent coming from Janisa Johnson on November 29, 2011.
Mackie’s career-highs of 20 kills and nine total blocks helped the 49ers snap a seven-match losing streak to UH and defeat the Rainbow Wahine for the first time since 2000. She produced a .327 hitting percentage with just four errors on a team-high 49 swings. The victory solidified first place for the 49ers in the Big West at 4-0.
She punctuated her solid all-around effort by putting down the final kill of the match, which secured the first 20-kill performance of her career. In addition, she had a career-high tying eight digs, which left her just two digs and one block short of a triple-double.
