Pancakes and Volleyball?
If you know the game of volleyball, you will understand. If not, let me give you a little bit of info. In volleyball, once the ball hits the floor, the point is over~ won or lost. It is the goal of the players to keep the ball from hitting the floor on their side of the court...and of course, hitting the ball to the floor on their opponents side. Got it? Now.... If the ball is going down and the player cannot get to it in time to pass it or hit it....it is possible to lay a hand on the floor and allow the ball to hit the top of the hand and bounce up to be set or hit back over the net by another player. That is called a "Pancake!" Any time someone gets a pancake...it is a big deal.
This weekend in Emily's tournament, she got 2!
What a thrill!
The first (above) I caught on my camera, thanks to a photog volleyball Mom who adjusted the settings on my camera! Yay! The pic shows the ball on it's way back up after it bounced off of her hand.
And the second one, we captured on video.
The video is of the entire game...so to see the pancake, skip to 9:00 seconds...and watch until 9:17.
If anyone can send me the link to instructions for posting only a portion of a video, that would be awesome!
Did you see it? Super fun, right? Thanks for letting me brag a little.
Happy Tuesday and enjoy your week!
