    Girls Varsity Volleyball

    Post  katherinebay on Wed Sep 09, 2009 4:50 pm

    When glancing inside the North Gym, the average student catches a peek at the Girls Varsity volleyball team practicing. From aces to digs, these girls present themselves in a flawless way, not only as a team, but as a family. This past summer, instead of surfing the internet or hanging out at the mall, these girls have had intense work outs utilizing both their strengths and weaknesses individually and as a team. The bond that was produced will definitely help them excel throughout the season. The girls are ready to knock ‘em dead this season with many returning and new, but promising players.

    The team had a summer program from 6-8am every morning, in which they would practice and on Thursdays, their had their summer league. Although the team had many losses during their summer league, and probably could have done a lot better during their summer league, “those losses helped make [them] stronger for the incoming difficult games during league and CIF,” said senior Madyson Cassidy. On the positive side, they achieved their goals of uniting as a team and improving their own individual expertise as well. Good team chemistry is a very important aspect and is frankly quite hard to achieve. Moreover, to prepare for the season, their practices consisted of a variety of agility training, such as lunges, leg kicks, knee holds and back twists. The team practices about 10+ hours a week if there are no games scheduled for that week. On average they usually have 2 games a week, which would make it 6+ hours a week.

    Some tournaments the girls varsity volleyball team had throughout the summer were Preps and Watts; Preps the team got first in the silver bracket and in Watts, the team won the championship, beating two or three of the toughest teams. That was definitely one of the highlights of that tournament. “Quote from Coach” Furthermore, their first was against La Canada and was a downfall, considering that the game ended with 1 win and 3 losses.

    One unique aspect of this team is their sense of bonding. For example, the team had a Queens tournament in Lake Forest, or El Toro and they made a team decision to all buy gold spandex there. It was a fun team thing, and they decided that they would try and blind the other team and distract them with their brightness. Although that didn’t exactly happen, "it was fun and you'll definitely be seeing the gold later this season," said senior Courtney Woo.

    When [By] glancing inside the North Gym, the average student catches [can catch] a peek at the Girls Varsity volleyball team practicing [diligently]. From aces to digs, these girls present themselves in a flawless way [manner], not only as a team, but as a family. This past summer, instead of surfing the internet or hanging out at the mall, these girls have had [participated in] intense work outs utilizing both their strengths and weaknesses [how do you utilize a weakness?] individually and as a team. The bond that was produced will definitely help them excel throughout the season. The girls are ready to knock ‘em dead this season [repetetion of ‘season’, use another word] with many [both] returning [members] and new, but promising players.

    The team had [created] a summer program from 6-8am every morning, in which they would practice and on Thursdays, their [they] had their summer league [summer program, training from 6-8am each morning, and then competing in their summer league every Thursday]. Although the team had [suffered] many losses during their summer league, and probably could have done a lot better during their summer league [Repetition of ‘during their summer league’. Saying they could have done a lot better seems a little awkward – try rephrasing that part], “those losses helped make [them] [since this is inside a quote, leave it as ‘us’, don’t change it to them] stronger for the incoming difficult games during league and CIF,” said senior Madyson Cassidy. On the positive side, they achieved their goals of uniting as a team and improving their own individual expertise as well. Good team chemistry is a very important aspect and is frankly quite hard to achieve. Moreover, to prepare for the season, their practices consisted of [included] a variety of agility training, such as lunges, leg kicks, knee holds and back twists. The team practices about 10+ hours a week [in a week without games] if there are no games scheduled for that week. [However] On average they usually have 2 games a week, which would make it 6+ hours a week.

    Some tournaments the girls varsity volleyball team had throughout the summer were Preps and Watts; Preps the team got first in the silver bracket and in Watts, the team won the championship, beating two or three of the toughest teams. [Two tournaments the girls varsity volleyball team attended were Preps and Watts. At Preps, the team won first in the silver bracker, and swept the competition away at Watts, winning the championship by beating two or three of the toughest teams in the league] That was definitely one of the highlights of that tournament. [This last sentence seems a little unnecessary] “Quote from Coach” Furthermore, their first was against La Canada and was a downfall, considering that the game ended with 1 win and 3 losses. [The sentence seems disconnected, and kind of confusing, consider deleting it, or incorporating it elsewhere]

    One unique aspect of this team is their sense of bonding. For example, the team had [at] a Queens tournament in Lake Forest, or El Toro and they made a team decision to all buy gold spandex there. It was a fun team thing, and they decided that they would try and blind the other team and distract them with their brightness. Although that didn’t exactly happen, "it was fun and you'll definitely be seeing the gold later this season," said senior Courtney Woo.

Soon after, they played La Serna and won with a score of 3-1. Likewise, the team beat San Gabriel with 3-0.
