You do not win ALONE. That is just how it is.

This was the seniors’ last season playing high school volleyball. Some cried due to them not being able to play anymore, and they are leaving their volleyball family.

“This season was a challenge for me. It was the first year that I played volleyball without one of my best friends. Although, it was amazing. I made many new friends and was able to play with old friends too. It was a very sentimental volleyball season because it was my last year. I CRIED SO MUCH, it was hard to see all my teammates and knowing it was the last time playing with them,” Senior Aricia Lopez said.

The season has ended, and the coaches were proud of the improvements they saw throughout the season. Players came in struggling with certain things, and by the time the final game came around, they had improved tremendously, which had them winning their last game.

“The season was a learning experience. We had various levels of talent, so there was a ton of room for growth. I enjoyed seeing each player grow. Ones that could not serve were serving by the end of the season which was incredible,” Coach Thompson said.

As the season progressed, they wound up going positive with JV having 6 wins and 5 losses. While Varsity had 5 wins and 7 losses. Varsity sadly did not make it to districts, but they did win their last two games, and the team was ecstatic.

“My view after the season improved since the season started. Thanks to all of my coaches, they have always been here for all of us, to teach us new things and all their patience with us. Some things we need to improve on are our communication, practicing our serves and blocking. As a team, we hyped each other up whenever someone did something great,” Eighth Grade Wilnellys Vargas Rodriguez said.
