I know it has been a while... but what a great last few weeks it has been! It all started when Kerri and April won the final AVP tournament in Huntington Beach---7 for 7 this year on the AVP tour. That has not happened in a looooooong time and I am so proud to be apart of it! From Huntington we traveled straight to Brazil, and I have been looking forward to this trip for about a month now... On my way to Brazil, instead of flying directly to Sao Paulo, I made a small detour to pick up my new assistant coach, ANTONIO!! This marks the first FIVB tournament Antonio has attended! He was awesome through the entire week! The girls loved having him there, he played with other kids who were at the tournament, but most importantly we were finally together! As a team, we ended up taking a 5th at the final Grand Slam... Not what we wanted but an OK finish to the 2014 season!
Now it's back to school and to coaching the Pepp Sand Team! I have two semesters left in my Masters program at Pepperdine, will start coaching the 6th-8th graders for Elite beach volleyball club, continue off season training with The Pepp team, and will be preparing to start the 2015 season with Kerri and April!
Antonio arrives December 20th in Los Angeles... Can't wait to have my assistant coach back 😀
