High School VB - Showcase Tournament

Rachel and Taylor's high school volleyball teams played
in a preseason two day tournament in Richmond, VA
Rachel's server has come a long way since last year
What a great block!
Solo Block
Rachel had many kills over the two days
Rachel played great the whole tournament
It's hard to be a freshman and sit on the bench so much
Finally got to play and serve
Taylor was part of some awesome blocks

No wait, it's Natalie, going into 1st grade this year
Her bus broke down so I had to drive her to school
It was pouring rain this morning so we got there a little late
Since I had to take Natalie to school, I missed getting a picture of Joseph

Finally got a picture of Joseph when I got home
