But I realized as I was talking to that friend that day that I am definitely in a “volleyball/tennis” bubble.
So if you’re sick of hearing about volleyball stop right here. Because you might be bored to tears as we’re soaking in the last of this while we can!
For three years now we have accompanied Max to the “Brophy Tournament” which is an invitational tournament to all the best teams in the area. The first year we won it. The next two we have come in third. And it is pretty fun to just get to watch volleyball for two days straight.
We sit up in these balcony areas and watch these schools compete on the three different courts below.
Every school has their own tables set up up there filled with a ton of food the parents bring (since you’re there for almost two days straight), and it is just kind of fun to socialize and watch all these different teams do their thing.
I am a little late on the camera sometimes but I love these two next pics. Max is just hitting it through these two blockers in this one:
And I love all theif faces and how the setter is on the ground on this one:
When Max was on the JV team he served all the time but something happened and he stopped serving. He didn’t serve hardly at all this season until the Brophy tournament and then he started and didn’t stop.
After some points these guys get SO excited I wish I could have captured it better.
These guys came in first in the pool play the first day.
(Grace had some stuff going on so she opted to stay home with Lu.)
That kid on the right is from Brophy (an all-Catholic private school) and has been recruited to play at BYU next year. Kind of fun to watch him in action.
Ok, if you made it through this you are champ.
Sums up our last Brophy tournament. So sad that it’s over, but so grateful for how much fun it’s been for the last few years.
