We played in the beautiful Upward Bound facility just outside Spartanburg. I cannot say enough nice things about the cleanliness and beauty of this place. It was spotless despite the crowd, the tournament was well organized and conducted and the guests were made so comfortable and welcome. (Like if Disney World ran a Volleyball tournament.)
I loved how the Upward organization used Bible verses as decor throughout.
We entered the tournament 3rd from the bottom. We finished the tournament as the Number 3 team. Not bad...
We enjoyed being with the families of the other team mates. We ate together and went to the movies on Saturday - after our biggest win of the season.
In fact, we had so much fun, I had to admit it was worth driving very late through very hard rain and barely sleeping to make it happen.
