This past weekend we had a mini tournament at home where we played Notre Dame College, Carnegie Mellon, and Manchester College. After some opening night jitters on Friday against Notre Dame, we returned to our usual form going 5 sets against 2008 NCAA participant Carnegie Mellon University and defeating Manchester College in 4. In the Manchester match one play stood out more than others. Above is a clip of first year Laura Jessee drilling Manchester’s left back defenseman in the face. The Carnegie Mellon match had a sentimental story to it when both Kaplon sisters faced off for the first time in their college careers. Keep checking in as this is definitely going to be a special season.

Our team has reported and preseason has been great. We have made great strides towards improvement, and it was recognized when we were picked 5th in the conference preseason poll. This pre-season we worked hard in the gym, and played even harder. Our team impressed us so much that instead of having three practices a day we took time to have some fun together as well. We camped out in Williams Field House, climbed the rock wall, had a movie night, and even a skit night. For more on skit night check out the movie above. Keep following us here and at www.goyeo.com as our season started on Tuesday, and we will have plenty to update you on.
