Volleyball, 1-2

We played "Like we give a hit" and played them close.  The first game we won 21-18.  The second game we lost 18-21.  The third we lost 15-17.  All three games could have gone either way.

Right arm still complains when I block using both arms.  It does not like the sudden upward movement.
