This is the 2017 volleyball season, for freshmen, junior varsity, and varsity. What do you think the season will look like? I will be asking one person from each level what they expect from this season.

First, from the freshmen team I have Rickiya Mims. She said the best game they have had so far is “the Cesar Chavez game.” Rickiya also says ” to win our next game we need to communicate and pass better.”  The biggest impact on her team in her opinion is player  Zelia Ibarra. But the thing she said that stood out to me is that “our coach believes in us even when we don’t believe in our selves.” She appreciates her coach just as all of us should.

Second, from the JV team is Isabella Zubia. Isabella Zubia says that her team is going to have a good season because “the JV team is really compatible with each other”. Zubia also thinks that “Rose Estby is the biggest impact on the team because she never gives up and she’s very skilled”. But my favorite part of what she said was “Every game is going to be a challenge but if we communicate like we are supposed to then we will have a better chance of winning.”

Last but not least, I spoke with Lydiana Tavizon from the Varsity team. Lydiana said that “the biggest impact on our team is Timber Hawkins because everyone looks up to her and her mood effects everyone else.” I agree with her, Timber is a really big impact on the team. She also says that “her coach gave her a chance even though I don’t know anything about volleyball.”  How is Varsity volleyball doing so far this season? Lydiana says that “In the beginning we struggled and lost people to injuries but still kept our spirit up and we are doing really good now.”

So this is part of the 2017 volleyball team and this is how they feel about the season. I regret that I didn’t try out for the volleyball team this year and i really miss it so I’ll be there next year. But I have a lot of faith in these girls to make this a great season for volleyball. They sure have some great coaches to make it happen.
