Volleyball, 0-3

We had our first match of the new season this week.  The season started last week, but we had a bye.  We played a team new to the league and got stomped.  They have 3 good hitters and manhandled us.

I tried to spike during warm-up and my right hip complained.  It's been aching, or needing to be popped for a couple of weeks.  Maybe this will help.
