Aloha and Mahalo Mike!
Oh no! 'Tis true! One of USL's most dedicated, talented and longtime players is leaving rainy, gray PDX for the languid, clear blue waters of OAHU! What??? And shift your talents out to those white sands of beach volleyball??? Well, we guess somebody has to do it and it might as well be Mike. And because he's upgrading to the beautiful shores of Waikiki for a work transfer in a couple weeks, we wanted to send him out in USL style with one last POTW. Mike Marxen can do it all and Wednesday at Tubman Softcore was no exception. Mike and the Sloppy Sets roared out in front of Blundercats by displaying some fancy setting and assists by Mike, to come out victorious in the first two sets. Game 3 saw a bit of a downturn as the Sets dropped for the loss, but they never cease to be consistent, especially when the scores were 20-25, 20-25 and 25-20! While we bid Aloha! to Mike in a few short weeks, we can still marvel at his volleyball skills for his remaining games with the Sloppy Sets. Great to have you as such a dedicated player, Mike and best of luck!

Straight Shots
Kevin Bacastow was a force of nature tonight! He had some awesome saves, including a backward hit over! Kevin's spikes were awesome :) and he had nice serves. Being one person short with only 5 players his hustle helped his team to win two out of three games. The third game the team lost a player to a sprain, but Kevin's persistence kept the team going strong to the end! Way to go Kevin!!

Nothing Sloppy About Erica's Game!
Nothing Sloppy About Erica's Game!
Sloppy Sets
Erica Nukaya of the Sloppy Sets approaches the game of volleyball with precision and a plan. Always in the right place at the right time. Her service on Wednesday Softcore at Tubman never missed the mark (at one point at least five in a row) and she was ready at net or with an assist for her fellow Sloppys. Erica's role as playmaker was definitely key for the Sloppys' three-game sweep over Air Bud Strikes Back. Her infectious energy, spirit and constant smile kept the game at a high level and inspired her teammates to achieve victory in every set!

Ben Doesn't Dink Around to Earn POTW
Ben Iwersen of the Dinkheads gets straight to the business of winning each week during Wednesday Softcore at Tubman. Especially when he's in the front row leading the defense at net. Blocks? Check. Tips? Check (his fingers just fly!). Jumps? Check. Energy? Duh...and that's just a small part of his defense. Using his fancy footwork, Ben went to the far reaches of the gym to make outrageous saves against the Straight Shots in three very close matches. He was also very effective with offensive ability in delivering pounding service and coming up top for a kill or two. After losing the first set, Ben exploded the Dinks' energy and they fought to wins in the second two games. Nice way to finish the night!

Carrie Martin
Carrie Martin
"Carried" to Victories!
Carrie Martin of the Dinkheads certainly earns POTW at Wednesday Tubman Softcore for her flawless play which spurred her team to a three-game sweep of the Blundercats. A powerful force at all positions, Carrie was especially effective at net where she tipped and killed her way with an offensive attack that's been stifled over the last month's long absence on the court due to the holidays and winter weather. With incredible finesse, Carrie makes plays which appear so effortless. Game 2 saw a push by the Blundercats to gain ground, but behind Carrie's precise setting and massive service, the Dinks were able to pull out a 25-22 win. There was no denying a third set and the Dinks won handily, 25-14. Kudos to Carrie for bringing her best game and winning attitude!

Sloppy Sets
Player of the week is a no brainier when a team doesn't hesitate to nominate an opponent for the honor. The Sloppy Sets faced off against the Blundercats, and when asked if any players stood out during the game, the Blundercats were unanimous: Julie from the Sloppy Sets. If that's not a ringing endorsement I don't know what is. We were all in awe of Julie's consistent play and team spirit. This is what Underdog is all about. Thanks Julie!

Tasha Huntley
Tasha Huntley
The Volley Lama
Despite the Volley Lamas defeat in the Wednesday Softcore Championships, Tasha Huntley's performance was an absolute standout. With her powerful service and canny ability to keep every ball in play, Tasha's energy and skill is second to none. The Volleys came out strong and won the first set behind Tasha's "one-arm, one-hand" defense - she can save a ball from pretty much any angle with her outstretched single limb. While ultimately her team was defeated in the second and third sets by the champion Dinkheads, Tasha's continually accurate setting and defensive work contributed to keeping the Volleys in close contention throughout each match. She's definitely a force to deal with a will to win, so watch out!
