Gracious in victory, gracious in defeat

This evening I participated in my second volleyball banquet as freshman team coach for De Smet Jesuit high school. The banquet is a time where the coaches, players, managers and parents come together to share a meal and reflect on the past season, thank the outgoing seniors for their years of dedication and great play in the volleyball program, and look forward to the next season of volleyball.

Our varsity team this year was very close to winning the state championship, and had the best record for a 4A school in St. Louis. Our JV team only lost to three teams, and our freshman team was 13-2 in the regular season, placing 2nd in their first tournament and winning the second. It was an awesome year, and I'm very proud of all the players who put their hearts into every game this season.
