Both the OVS volleyball and soccer teams are off to amazing starts to their seasons.
OVS soccer launched its fall club season last Wednesday, hosting the Garden Street Academy in its first game. The Spuds emerged with a 4-1 victory, with senior Masaki Takamatsu leading the team in scoring with three of the goals and senior Amir Podoswa scoring the fourth. It was Amir’s first goal in his high school career.
“It’s only been a couple of weeks but already it is obvious that our team has a lot of potential and talent,” said goalie Kase Skillern. “We are looking forward to a great season.”
Volleyball did not win its first game, but the team pulled together for game number two against Midland.
Showing what Spuds are truly made of, the girls dominated, winning the first three sets. Midland put up a good fight, but through good communication and teamwork, the Spuds pulled through.
In one set, team captain Nicole Kang served 16 points in a row, and with her powerful serve it will be hard to stop the girls from having a great season.
“After our last game was a loss, we decided going into it this time that we would work together more,” said volleyball player Kendall Shiffman. “We worked off one another and created a great energy to work, which ultimately led to our win.”
