This week in Arkansas volleyball

This week in Arkansas volleyball

Click here to meet some former Lady’BacksHello Future Razorbacks!“Energy” is the word that we emphasized for this past weekend and energy is what we got! As you all know, volleyball is a dynamic, fast-paced, momentum driven sport. But as frustrating as it can be for players, teams, coaches and fans, momentum can also be a huge factor on which team controls a match. So for this weekend, we wanted control and the way we got it was from our energy. After talking about it on Thursday’s practice and again in the pre-game talk, our athletes really took the energy goal to heart. I could feel the intensity building as we warmed up for the Georgia match. From the first whistle our athletes were pumped! Every block, kill, dig and rally saw a grand celebration. Our freshman middle blocker, Destiny Clark, really became a new player this weekend. A reserved, polite individual outside the volleyball court, Destiny became our emotional leader on the court, celebrating each point to the max and turning into a beast at the net. We heard today that she received the SEC Freshman of the Week Award and she really deserved it.

It turned out that the energy we brought to the match was contagious. Barnhill Arena was as loud as I have ever heard it. The fans cheered so much that it felt as if we had a 7th player on the court. No doubt that bringing energy to the court helped us play better as a team. But what I learned from the smiles on all of our faces was that we had so much fun doing it. As a team, we dominated the court, set the tempo and as a result played really good volleyball. At the same time, it was such a blast! We are bringing the same energy for the upcoming matches this weekend versus Mississippi State and Ole Miss. I hope you can be there for the fun! Go Razorbacks! Chris PooleHead Coach
