Literary Lion: Fierce


http://www.pinterest.com

There was no girls volleyball team in high school after grade ten. Jenna went to the couch of the boy’s team and asked if she could practice volleyball with them. The couch reminded her it might be difficult but Jenna was fierce. She ran every set of lines the boys team did and she learned to take passes which left dark purple bruises on her forearms. She learned to do a jumping serve, with the ball landing over the net and neatly down the line. Jenna was passionate about volleyball and improving her skills. Despite her lack of reach, she passed or set every ball in her zone. Jenna’s hitting was powerful and her knowledge of plays and positions detailed. Finally, Jenna went to University and played with a girls team which went on to win Nationals four-years in a row — each year Jenna was a force on the team. They boys in high school had called her a panther: “Though she be little she was fierce.”

    1. Lol. I played until the end of high school. I was disappointed my smaller university didn’t have a team. They got one after I graduated, but before we tried to start one in my first year and the head of a athletics said there was not enough gym time. Oh well, was fun while it lasted 🙂 Thank you for your comments PJ.

      1. lol. It’s okay. Whatever will be will be. . . had other things to keep me occupied such as work at the campus bookstore which helped me to finish school and stay out of debt. So things work out 🙂
