Girls volleyball, for all three teams, had an amazing run throughout the season, with varsity going 6-2 in league, JV going undefeated with a record of 16-0, and Frosh/Soph holding a record of 3-13. This season had its ups and downs, but in the end, our Varsity team won League, and JV went undefeated throughout the whole season.
Frosh/Soph, a team made from experienced players and players who might not have played the sport had an amazing growth from their first game to the last. Having an amazing season, the group of JV girls, made up, for the most part, of club Volleyball players, went undefeated and had the best season they could ask for.
When it was time for CIF playoffs for varsity, sophomore libero, Leah Orsini, outside hitter, Azylinn Trefren, and opposite Emily Ford from the JV team got pulled up to play for Varsity. Varsity, having its ups and downs, started the season off not the way they wanted. They weren’t winning the games they wanted to but as the season progressed, the team went on a winning streak. Winning their games against Simi, Oak Park, Moorpark, and Camarillo. In the end, their win at home against Simi gave them the title of league champions.
“Playing Simi made it that much better and exciting to win,” Sophomore Varsity outside Hitter said. With the rival against Simi, winning league was the biggest moment.
“Well I knew we won league but I was more focused on the fact that it was my last league game with my best friend,” said senior Varsity middle blocker Gracie Garland. All three girls volleyball teams here were all about learning the sport and getting better at it but not only that, making friends and meeting new people. The friendships aren’t just in their team but from all three teams, many friendships were made this season. Head girls volleyball coach Kristine Connolly said, “Honestly my favorite part of this season was spending time with the girls after not having a season last year due to Covid.”
