The girls volleyball team opened up the season with two games this week, one defending their home court and the other away.
Beginning the season with a home game against Santa Clarita Valley International on Tuesday, the girls dominated and won in three sets. With strong serving from senior Sasha Valenzuela and great energy from junior Kanna Teranuma, the girls were able to come together and play as a powerful unit.
“In the first game, the team had great communication,” senior Margo Eramova said. “We came together after each point, kept our energy up and were super loud which made me feel not only like a great team, but like we were a family. Even though everyone was nervous, we crushed that game with a 3-0 win. It made me feel really proud.”
On Saturday, the team traveled to Santa Barbara to play Garden Street Academy. Though the girls lost in four sets, they showed great perseverance on the court. Sophomore Marley Burroughs was extremely tough and played great defense.
“I am prepared to motivate my team to do better, work harder and be even louder on the court,” Margo concluded. “I will not accept more losses like the last game because I know we can beat Garden Street like we defeated Santa Clarita Valley International.”
The girls’ will play away at Midland this Wednesday, September 18 at 2:00 and again on Saturday, September 21 against Garden Street Academy at 2:00.Share
