Jordan Timmermann, Catamount Volleyball Blog No. 4

It's a great day to be a Catamount! We have been busy for quite a while now, hence my lack of blogging. We have had our ups and our downs over the past couple of weeks and I'll be catching you up to speed.

We went to the NC State tournament and went 1-2, getting our win against Campbell in 5 games. It was a good game and helped us keep our heads high at the end of the tournament. The next weekend we were on the road again to participate in the Winthrop Classic in South Carolina. This tournament wasn't one of our best. We had some of our major struggles during our games this weekend. We had to learn how to up our mental game, which was starting to become our downfall. We came so close to getting wins in all our matches, but the outcome wasn't in our favor. We knew that the next game we would play would be crucial to our outlook on the future.

The match against Gardner Webb was the game that turned it around for us. We came out ready to play and took control! We came out on top and won our match in 3 sets. It was a great feeling to come out and have an amazing game! Next, we would start conference play with matches against Samford and Chattanooga. Again, more traveling and long bus rides.

I was beginning to forget where exactly we were at. Actually, that is most of the time since this Missouri girl couldn't tell you a lot of things about the cities on the east coast. Samford, who is one of the top teams in our conference, was our first opponent of the weekend. We had some struggles against this strong team and ended up losing the match in 3 sets. However, we would have to be ready to play Chattanooga the next day. We had a complete turn around and came out strong against the Mocs. We won the match 3-1 and it was the best I have seen us play. Everything was going our way and we were playing with control.

Finally catching you up to speed with this past weekend, we played against Elon and UNCG at home. Elon came out strong and we struggled to finish out games. The sets were close, but we couldn't follow through on winning the sets. Again, we would have to forget the loss and go on to UNCG the next day. We must have had a fire lit under our butts because we came out ready to take it to the Spartans. Having it be a close game the entire match, we came out on top and took the match in three sets.

We may be going on a roller coaster ride, but I think we are on our way to figuring things out. I couldn't ask for a better team because I would do anything for these girls! We have a week of practice ahead of us, and then Thursday we take on our rivals, Appalachian State. On Saturday we have a match against Davidson, so come out and support the volleyball team! GO CATS!

The first in a series of blogs by sophomore OH Jordan Timmermann. In her first season in the Purple and Gold, the Florissant, Mo., native made the 2012 SoCon All-Freshman Team as she finished second on the team in digs with 355 for the year. She was a two-time SoCon Freshman of the Week (Sept. 19, Oct. 17) while also picking up seven double-doubles for the season, including four in a row from Nov. 14-Nov. 30. Check the blog section of the bottom of CatamountSports.com and the Volleyball page for more blog entries from Timmermann.

Summer is almost over which can only mean one thing...volleyball preseason! Say hello to sore bodies and aching muscles. Everyone is back and ready to hit the gym for practice and conditioning. While our muscles are screaming at us, it will be all worth it in the end because hard work pays off!

It is great to be back in the `Whee with everyone on the team because we are truly everyone's best friends and family. Even the freshmen are fitting in perfectly to our craziness. Week one of preseason is already done and over with and man was it busy. We managed to fit in two-a-days, lifting, conditioning, and even a rafting trip!

Our team bonding rafting trip will be something we will remember for a long time. Just think of 14 screaming girls in rafts, in 55 degree water, while it was pouring down rain. Yeah couldn't get any worse....oh wait I forgot the lightning and thunder. I just remember thinking to myself (as I was shivering the ENTIRE time) what did I get myself into? We didn't have the ideal conditions for a good rafting trip, but we made it our own and definitely made memories that will stay with us forever.

I know we are all looking forward to this upcoming season because we are closer than ever and have the focus to achieve our goals. I like to use a quote from one of my favorite TV shows, "Friday Night Lights," that I think fits perfectly for the team: "Clear eyes, Full hearts, Can't lose."





"Clear eyes, Full hearts, Can't lose."
Friday Night Lights


If we stay together as a team and put our heart and soul into every moment, we can't lose. I'll keep everyone updated on what is going on with the volleyball team because I'm sure we will have some crazy stories to be told. GO CATS!
