VOLLEYBLOG: Halloween Practice and Senior Day

HALLOWEEN PRACTICE

This year, as per our usual tradition, we had a Halloween practice on the 31st. Our costumes included, Luigi, a school girl, an 80s girl, Waldo, Bballers, the Harlem Globe Trotters and Nerds.

The whole volleyball team dressed up in their Halloween costumes.

On the 5th of November, before our match against Southern Connecticut, we honored our two Seniors: L and Colleen. Their contributions and dedication to our program and our team over the course of four years at Stonehill has truly touched every member of our team. We are so proud to call them, not only our teammates, but also, our dear friends.

On November 1st, we had a special Orange Out Game. We asked everyone in attendance to dress in Orange in an effort to promote Leukemia and Lymphoma Awareness, in memory of Henry Thevenin, '14.

Donations were accepted for Team H-Luv who participated in the Light the Night Walk earlier this month.

What we’re listening to: “Ice Cream Paint Job” and “Everyday I’m Huselton,” in honor of our seniors.

Coming up: We just wrapped up our regular season, finishing 14-1 in conference. We host the first game of the postseason Tuesday at 7 in Merkert!

Fans of the week: The Frankowski’s! Jess’s family prepared an entire pasta dinner for us after the New Haven match! J Unfortunately, due to a blizzard in Connecticut we didn’t make it to the Frankowski home, but we appreciate all the work they put into the dinner and them coming to cheer us on!

In honor of senior day, here’s an interesting fact about each of our seniors:

Laura: L broke her arm during a volleyball match her freshman year in high school. Today, she has 2 metal plates and 12 screws because of the injury. We suspect the exceptionally flat surface of her forearms may be the reason behind her expert passing!

Colleen: Last semester travelled to China. There she camped on the great wall and watched sunsets over the mountains. She hiked the Himalayas and toured Tibet.
