When you start the season with three consecutive weeks of road games, you gain a totally new appreciation for playing at home! We returned home this past weekend to play our first matches of the season in the Stephen J. Cage Center and what a homecoming it was! Friday night started with a tailgate for our fans sponsored by Residence Life, our first 50 fans received a special Berry Athletics t-shirt, and our fans came dressed in the their "frat attire" as part of the promotional theme! From the opening rendition of the Berry Fight Song to the crowd joining our team in singing the Berry Alma Mater after the home conference win, it could not have been more fun to play at home! Here are just a few of the things that we like about playing at home:
- we have the best fans in DIII volleyball
- the Cage Center is an ideal volleyball facility that enables us to run our matches in a first class manner
- we get to control the warm up music :-)
- sleeping in our own beds sure is nice
- no stress from missed classes
- no long bus rides
- did I mention that we have the best fans in DIII volleyball?
- coach's son provides ample entertainment any time there is music, and there is a lot of music at our home games
Fortunately, we get to play at home for the next two weekends! If you are anywhere near Rome, we hope you will come and enjoy the fun as we continue on our quest for a conference championship! So far, we are 4-1 (2-0 at home) in conference with some important match ups coming up in the next two weeks!
Here are a few photos to give you an idea of what's in store!
