Although I hadn't played since primary school gym class, I joined a volleyball team this year. We were called the Pandas and we wrapped up our inaugural season last night.
In a 12-team league, we had a very strong regular season, earning us a first round playoff bye. In our semi-final game, we dominated. Our practice paid off... and we actually did practice.
In the finals, however, we met our match. We faced the team that had our number all season, and they took us out two games straight.
