Volleyball rolls over the Buffs

I also couldn’t resist telling you about MU Volleyball’s road win over the Colorado Buffaloes last evening. I didn’t get to watch it, but I have it on tape, so I’ll watch it soon.

Here’s an excerpt from the MU website:

The Missouri volleyball team (9-6, 2-4 Big 12) won another five game thriller Wednesday night, taking the match over Colorado in Boulder, 30-20, 30-19, 26-30, 28-30, 15-9. Freshman Weiwen Wang (Nanjing, China) was nearly unstoppable on the night, recording school records in blocks in a match (13) and most kills without an error (19). In addition, Weiwen added two service aces and six digs.

Weiwen also recorded the second-highest hitting percentage (.559, 19-0-34) all-time in a Tiger five-game match.

“I just tried my best to be as active as possible in the position,” said Weiwen. “The records were definitely unexpected. I just went out and did my job.”

Former Tiger Christi Myers held the previous school records in both the blocks-in-a-match (12) category and most-kills-without-an-error (17) stat.

FYI — Christi Myers was MU’s greatest player ever. Think how good Weiwen Wang — a freshman — will be by the end of her career!!

That’s it…I have to get ready for my trip.
