Quotable: Falcon volleyballSeptember 26th, 2012 at Wed, 26th, 2012 at 12:06 pm by benwatanabe
After going to the scream- and cheer-filled gyms of the South Whidbey Invitational volleyball tournament, there are some entertaining quotes.
This first one was from Falcon senior Hannah Calderwood, who reflected on what she enjoyed about playing her fourth South Whidbey Invite.
“First of all, I like our outfits,” Calderwood said, pointing to the bright orange, Hawaiian-style shorts and orange shirt the Falcons donned for the tournament. “I like playing against teams I’ve never seen before. They don’t know anything about us, we don’t know anything about them.”
The Falcons had played 15 sets in five days going into the full day of volleyball matches Saturday. Fatigue was on my mind, mainly because it was 9:30 on a Saturday and I was working, but nonetheless the Falcon players said they were neither sore nor tired.
“I always ignore it when I’m back on the court because I love the sport,” Anne Madsen, Falcon sophomore.
