After a much-needed night of rest, the team met in the morning to ride a bus to a Buddhist temple in Shanghai. Touring the grounds for two-and-a-half hours, the Cats learned about the traditions of Buddhism and took plenty of pictures along the way.
They then returned to their hotel near Shanghai University for lunch. The culinary adventures continued.
Continuing the educational portion of the trip, the team spent three hours studying at Shanghai University before dinner and the first volleyball match of the trip against Shangai Juniors. The Cats got the win in a performance that pleased head coach Craig Skinner.
Well tried some chicken foot for lunch... 😳 pic.twitter.com/B4sSRMQeON-- Lauren O'Conner (@LaurenOC12) May 22, 2014
Good to get off to a solid start in our 1st match beating Shanghai Jrs. #UKVBtoChina-- Craig Skinner (@UKCoachSkinner) May 22, 2014
Started slow in each set but closed well each time winning 3-0. Much to improve on during the trip. #UKVBtoChina-- Craig Skinner (@UKCoachSkinner) May 22, 2014
