Original post made on Dec 22, 2008

Cynthia Barboza, Foluke Akinradewo, Erin Waller and Jessica Fishburn don't need to explain, apologize or otherwise discuss reaching three consecutive championship matches in women's volleyball without winning it all.

I live in Miami and watched the Stanford semifinal match and finals on television. The heart these young women showed on the court was inspirational. I applaude not only the seniors but the entire team.
