PANAMA CITY, FL (WJHG/WECP) - At this point of the season, nothing comes easy. For the Mosley volleyball squad, and a few other teams though are facing a unique set of challenges this postseason.
Dolphins head coach Michelle Mask and the Dolphins are continuing to practice away from their own damaged gym.
Tuesday night's workout was at Rosenwald. Last week, they split time at Mowat and South Walton.
That's a minor inconvenience all things considered. What the players are dealing with at home is more physically and emotionally taxing.
It's also more important...but for game day, Mask wants total focus.
"I asked the girls if they would ask their parents to give then the morning off [Tuesday] so they could mentally prepare for the game," Mask said. "A lot of these girls are having to work for hours in their yards, cleaning up, moving, packing boxes. So many of them come to practice tired. It's kind of sad to know that they have to spend so much of their days and so much of their time putting their pieces back together again."
This is Mosley's tenth straight trip to the region semifinals, and perhaps their most important playoff match and potential playoff run of all.
"We can't lose tomorrow night. We've already lost so much," Mask added. "Everybody's kind of counting on us. It's a nice distraction to come out here and we want to keep doing this as long as we can."
The match is set for 7 p.m. eastern at Wakulla.
