Listen to Monday's archived copy of the Sports Overtime Show, and Senior Diary entry by Seth Waller

Saturday’s loss to Austin College was another game that we should have won. Our first drive was a ninety- five yard seventeen play score. Their offense came ready to play and so did ours. We scored and scored fast. We took a big hit in the third quarter when we only ran three plays. Their offense did a good job of managing the clock and keeping our offense off the field. The weather did not play too much of a factor in our passing game and hopefully this Saturday we will see a clear sky at Wilford Moore Stadium when we play Mississippi College.

Senior Diary: Danielle Kelton recaps Colorado College Tournament experience

This past week we had the opportunity to go to Colorado Springs, CO for our second tournament of the season. We had four games this weekend and went 2-2. This weekend was a great weekend for out team. Although we lost two of the games we grew together as a team and became stronger on and off the court. We played several very good volleyball teams, one in which was Puget Sounds the number 14th team in the nation. Having the opportunity to play against these teams really helped in our preparation for our first conference game this Tuesday in Brownwood.

The coaches are always wonderful not only in taking all 23 of us on each trip so we can stay unified but also giving us the opportunity to see new and exciting places. We left Wednesday afternoon and drove all 11 hours to Colorado. The next day they took us to the Olympic Training Center, we watched a video and took a tour of the training center and were able to see some male gymnasts training. Seeing and hearing how hard each of them have to train each day really inspired me to work hard in everything I do. There was a quote on the wall that read: “Practice like you are the worst, play like you are the best” –anonymous. I really think this is the kind of mindset we should all have this season. We are preparing this week for Howard Payne on Tuesday in Brownwood.
