Coppell Cowgirl Volleyball Update

Weekly Update #7

Time is Flying!

It never does seem to slow down during volleyball season, but if possible, things are moving faster and faster as we head toward the back half of our season! We've had a great week this past week with the volleyball part - our teams went 3-1 with Lake Highlands on Tuesday night, with varsity winning a crazy close one in five sets. We had a program sweep on Friday night against Dallas Skyline! The varsity is currently 3-0 and sitting in first place in district - we expect it to be a tough battle to keep that, but it's been a great start!!

This Past Week...

Team Up 4 a Cause - CCVB & St Jude Children's Research Hospital

We had an absolutely awesome night on Tuesday night with Team Up 4 a Cause! In the end, we raised over $4,000 for St. Jude and collected over 200 books/board games to donate to the hospital. HUGE thank you to all of the parents (especially Susan Hall) who helped put this thing together - it is so good for all of us to step outside of ourselves and take care of someone else. What a great example to our kids that you don't have to do everything, you just have to do something - every little bit makes a difference.

Middle School Night

This was one of our most fun middle school nights since I've been here! Erin Hellmuth and Joann Lloyd did a great job of organizing and herding those middle school volleyball players from one area to another. They got to see a 9th grade game, play a serving game to win a t-shirt, get introduced at the varsity game, create a tunnel for the varsity entrance, and be a part of our Team Up efforts. All in all, it was a great night! The pics of those kiddos are also in the google link in the previous section.

Other Stuff...

From Linda Silver

Dear Coppell Cowgirls Volleyball family,

Where do I begin? I am so humbled and grateful for all the help our family has received during this difficult time. As Coach Green informed you in her email, my cancer treatment has caused me quite a bit of nauseousness. Because of this it has been difficult to ensure Sam is taken care of for dinner each night.

We cannot tell you how much we appreciate all of you and your generosity in the way of restaurant gift cards. Being sick is never easy but your assistance has and will continue to relieve a lot of the stress involved and lets me continue to focus on recovering.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity more than you will ever know.

To all those fighting the good fight, keep fighting and to all those who donate, a big thank you to you all. I feel blessed to be living in a day an age where treatment is far less disruptive to quality of life and recurrence rates are down and prognoses are more positive. All reasons to celebrate.

Thanks again,

Love Linda K Silver
