Jordan Bostic's Aggie Volleyball Diary :: November 16th, 2006

Jordan Bostic is a member of the 2006 NMSU Aggies Volleyball team. Jordan led the team in both digs (463) and digs per game (4.72) and was named second team All-WAC in 2005. Jordan is currently a junior majoring in Journalism/Mass Communication and she'll be filing entries in the Aggie Volleyball Diary throughout the 2006 season, giving fans a taste of life on the volleyball team.

I know it has been awhile since I have updated this diary, but you will have to forgive me because these last weeks have been a whirlwind. Tonight we reached the 30 win mark (hooray!) in our Pan-Am homecoming. Before the match we spent time reveling in our new locker room, loving the spacious set up and the fact that we now have showers. Since the Pan Am is still a work in progress, we didn't get to run out of the new tunnel, but we were all talking about how awesome that will be.

We had a pretty good time in Hawaii last weekend, but of course it would have been better if we won. When we tell people we went to Hawaii, they picture us lounging out on the beach all day, but that wasn't the case. We never went to the beach at all, actually, because we didn't want to be in the sun and lose energy for practice or the game. It was a business trip for us.

The first morning that we practiced in Hawaii, our coaches took us to see a sign that said "REVENGE" and "Come watch the Wahine get revenge on the Aggies." It was pretty exciting to have that rivalry action going, I thought. The match was very well publicized there, and they got a great crowd. Even as we were exiting the plane, a valet started chanting "Let's go Bows!" when he saw our NMSU volleyball t-shirts. Everyone was exciting about the match.

As for the match itself, I wish we would have played better and won. But, alas, we didn't have a great night, and that's all there is to say about that. However, the red-eye flight back after the match was pretty brutal. I sympathize deeply with the Hawaii team for having to make that trip every single time they go on the road. I don't know how they do it!

Anyway, we have Senior Night this Saturday, which is always exciting. We are covertly working on our gifts to the girls, and it's always nice to give them gifts and watch them get all emotional (I predict there will be tears). We'll miss you Choi, Alice, and Tanya! Choi, Debby's van just won't be the same without you!

But first things first: Conference Tournament. I think I speak for all the girls when I say that we are really going out there looking to prove something to the WAC and to ourselves. It's going to be a BIG week. If anyone doesn't have Thanksgiving plans and likes gambling, they should join us in Reno because there are going to be some great games! GO AGGIES!!
