Weekend Highlights - Vassar Volleyball Reunion

I'm in NY for a work training so I'm not meal prepping this week. If you need some inspiration, check out The Lean Green Bean's collection of weekly food prep pics, including one of mine!

Happy Monday! Anything exciting happen over this first fall weekend? I spent the weekend at Vassar reliving my collegiate athlete days and pretending to be a student again :)

Vassar College Women's Volleyball 2005-2007

Playing volleyball was one of the best parts of my college experience so I was really excited when our coach organized an alumni game for this weekend. Most of my class and a lot of the other girls I played with came up and it was really fun to catch up with everyone.

I took the bus and train up to good old Poughkeepsie Friday night. Saturday morning, a few of us took a stroll across the Walkway Over the Hudson, the longest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world.

It was a beautiful day!


Afterwards, we took a walk down memory lane around campus, playing tourist and taking tons of pictures. One of my classmates may or may not have also lectured some poor undergrad about appreciating and making the most of her time at Vassar. Yes we were those people.

Our campus is so pretty!

And so are my classmates :)

After our walk, we headed over to the gym to watch the current team take on Kean University.

It was great to see our gym. Spent so much time here for four years of my life.

The girls won in 4 sets and played really well! And then they had to play us.

We ended up with a really strong team of 10 alums from the '06-'11 classes. With the exception of 2 girls, all of us had played together at least 1 year. We also had the all-time kills, blocks, and digs leaders on the floor (the last one = yours truly. yea I used to be kind of awesome). Unfortunately, we didn't win, but we did come close and it was actually a really high level and fun match. Not bad for a bunch of old ladies who haven't played together in years. There was a small reception (with food!) after where we had a chance to mingle more with our fellow alums and the current team.

All in all it was a great weekend and I can't wait to do it again. We are trying to make it a bi-annual event, so I think that means it's time to start training for 2015. Those young girls are going down next time!
