NORCECA by Ryan Millar

by Brynn Murphy on June 4, 2012

I have officially been a part of 4 NORCECA Olympic zone qualifiers, and I have won each of them.  4 times I have been a part of those great teams, and 4 times we have booked our tickets to the Olympic Games.  It is and always will be a great honor to represent our amazing country.  It never gets old hearing the Star Spangled Banner played before a match, or after a tournament win.  I proudly put my hand over my heart and sing along with the words.  I have been fortunate enough to have done that for quite some time now. This past qualification tournament ...

Norcecas by Brian Thornton

by Brynn Murphy on May 29, 2012

The Norceca olympic qualifier at the Pyramid in Long Beach was the best thing to happen to USA volleyball in awhile. Mind you I have not been around that long but I have never seen or heard of anything like the environment I had the privilege of experiencing last weekend. Particularly Saturday night against Canada. The day before the match I had told one of my friends that I thought it was going to be electric in there for the finals. I was wrong. it was far better than that. It is not often past college that you get to have the pleasure of playing at home. It's an entire...

Back at it... by Ryan Millar

by Brynn Murphy on April 5, 2012

One of the best days of the year is always the day that you are heading to the airport to go home after a long season overseas. This season was no different. Playing in Russia was good for a number of reasons, but nothing beats being at home with your family and loved ones. Luckily the way my contract was set up, I got to leave Russia earlier than everyone else and I was able to get back to with Team USA much earlier than usual.

Playoffs in Poland by Alisha Glass

by Brynn Murphy on April 2, 2012

It's playoff time here in Poland!! We just finished the semifinals against a team called Dabrowa.  The series was best 3 out of 5.  We tied the series 2-2 and played the fifth match at home.  It was a crazy match.  We came out really strong in the first set and killed them, they came back and won the next two sets.  They were close but they came out on top.  The tide had turned, a lot!! We had to keep the hopes of getting to the finals, so although we were down in the fourth, we battled back and made it go to the fifth set.  We were optimistic until it...
