Wahine finish tour with 3-1 over Olymp Praha

olymp praha

A very good finish to the tour. Wahine win 21-25, 26-24, 25-19, 25-12.

Olymp wasn’t at full strength. they had five players missing who were with the national team so it was a mix of a couple of levels from their club ranks.

Manu-Olevao contined to be very steady, served really well, had a lot of service runs.

both Magill and Maglio played well, used their athleticism and have been working on jumping earlier on the quick. Connection was good.

They had a little trouble with the left-handed opposite, gave up a couple of dinks.

The Olymp setter got nailed three times pretty close together, 2 by Taylor and 1 by Manu-Olevao. Knocked her over all three times.

Ball wasn’t the FIVB Mikasa, more of softer FIVB ball, think it was called gala.

Coaches made the right adjustments after Set 1. As did the players who’ve had a tendency to start slower.

Team took the tram back. Was delayed when a car stalled on the tracks. Shoji and a couple of players decided to hoof it back to the hotel, about a 15 minute walk. Most stayed on the tram, waited for car to be towed and beat the walkers back by 10 minutes.

Going very Euro tonight for dinner. because of getting back so late, dinner won’t be unit 9 p.m.

Ciao for now.

    Guess everyone had a good time doing what they supposed to do. Lots of ground traveling and now the long plane ride back.
    Cindy, Thanks for all the updates and thank you SA for sending you there.
    Now we won’t be hearing to much until spring practice.

    UH 2015 class ranked #24 on Prep.com. Only USA freshmen considered for rating classes, so UH has only Granato and Castillo in the 2015 recruiting class. Burns is a Canadian and Mitchem a JC.
