I Went From 3rd Setter To Starting Setter
September 3, 2008
Last night I got to start at setter. This was another change that I adapted to. Now I'm setting to at least 2 different players that I haven't set for except during practice. We started out slow but then we came together. Both sets we came from behind to win. I'm so proud of my team & in the fact that we all can adjust & come out on top!!! Ready for Thursday.
