AVP Austin

IMG_3819

It was a nice, cloudy, cool day in Austin for the AVP to have their finals.  The women’s and men’s favorites won their matches as the packed stadium cheered them on.  April Ross and Whitney Pavlik won $15,000 in the women’s bracket, and Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena did the same in the men’s bracket.  I think Phil Dalhausser is still my favorite volleyball player, with him winning the gold medal at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 with partner Todd Rogers as my favorite memory.  It is so much fun to see all the volleyball professionals play live in the stadium. Catch them on tour this summer if you have the opportunity.

Tower Reflections

The Biology Turtle Pond on campus was a nice place to get some photos of the Texas Tower on this cold, drizzly night.  The Tower was lit up in Burnt Orange in honor of the Texas Women’s Volleyball Team winning the Big 12 Championship.  Yay!  I took the opportunity to walk around campus with my camera.
