Ellen Miks' Aggie Volleyball Diary :: September 7th, 2010

Ellen MiksHello Aggie fans! Thank you everyone who came to our first home games last week and the UTEP game in El Paso! We had a blast playing in front of everyone and we hope that when September 25 rolls around that everyone will be back for more!

This week has been pretty intense in practice, but there is one thing that I remember vividly that happened a few days ago. The middles were hitting 4’s, the outside set, and coach told them to hit cross-court. They were creaming the ball and it was a blast watching them hit! For one hit, Brynja set Kelsey a great ball and Kelsey hit it down the line. This ball was hammered, but unfortunately our coach Don Flora was standing right where she hit the ball. Kelsey definitely hit Don’s chin in the process, which is what we in volleyball like to call a facial.

We leave for Baton Rouge this week to play Rice, North Carolina, and Louisiana State! It’s going to be a great weekend for us to play against great teams!

Oh, for all of you baseball fans out there I just wanted to give a shout out to my friend Ubaldo Jiménez from the Colorado Rockies professional baseball team. He played on Monday and got his 18th win of the season, making it a franchise record for wins in the club for a single season! We are all very proud of him and hopefully he can get a few more wins before the season is over! He is also a very big NMSU Volleyball fan :]
