    Boys Volleyball

    Post  joyceliao on Fri May 14, 2010 10:45 am

    The boys of the Varsity Volleyball team are doing more than setting (and passing) volleyballs over a net, they're setting the standards. This year, they have won a majority of their games and played in numerous weekend competitions such as the OC Volleyball Championships and the Redondo Union Classic.
    Being on the court involves more than great vertical jumps. To find success, one must have exceptional hand-eye coordination, fast reflexes, and the ability to communicate and work together with the five other people on the court.
    In a game of volleyball, there are six people on the court at one time. The sport teaches the players the value of teammates, as it is against the rules for one person to hit the ball two times in a row.
    To hone their skills, they practice daily, from sixth period to afterschool until ___. Not only are they constantly practicing setting, blocking, spiking, and passing among other things, they must work on their endurance. It takes a lot of energy to be able to get through one game! In order to develop their strength, they occasionally run laps around the track.
    The Apaches have learned the importance of hard work and working together. They kicked off an amazing season on Mar. 3 with a win against Chatsworth High School, winning 3 to 1.
    As the weeks passed, the Boys Varsity Volleyball team continued to dominate their games, beating both San Marcos High School and South Pasadena High School, both with scores of 3 to 2.
    On Saturday Mar. 13, they hosted their own Arcadia Invitational Varsity Volleyball Tournament, where they placed _.
    The following weekend, they traveled down to Edison High School to compete in the OC Volleyball championships, taking home _.
    In the game against Hoover High School on Apr. 2, the Apaches didn't let down their guard for one moment, ultimately victorious with a score of 3 to Hoover's 0.
    On Apr. 14, the boys suffered their first loss of the season against John Burroughs High School and lost 1 to 3.
    Determined to turn it around, they then destroyed Glendale High School the next Friday 3 to 0.
    Their only other loss of the season came from Crescenta Valley on Apr. 23. When they met again on May 6, the Apaches were looking for revenge and won 3 to 2.

    This is it until I get some more quotes! Will try to update some more tonight and whenever the players respond

    Being on the court involves more than height. To find success, one must have exceptional hand-eye coordination, fast reflexes, and the ability to communicate and work together with the five other people on the court. That's not to say that height is not an advantage, however. As an unwritten,intangible, but _,requirement,most of the boys are just around six feet or taller.
    In a game of volleyball, there are six people on the court at one time. The sport teaches the players the value of having teammates, as it is against the rules for one person to hit the ball two times in a row.
    To hone their skills, they practice daily, from sixth period to afterschool until around 5:00 PM. Not only are they constantly practicing setting, blocking, spiking, and passing among other things, they having a lot of laughs and making memories while they're at it. "The team is extremely loud and energetic. Everyone is extremely close," said junior Preston Lee.
    The Apaches have learned the importance of hard work and working together. Since volleyball is an extremely team-oriented sport, they must learn to depend on and support each other. "One person cannot lead a team to victory. One person cannot get his teammates fired up. One person cannot communicate with every single player on the court. Everything about volleyball needs to have a mutual and genuine effort," added Preston.
    With their diligent training and team chemistry, the boys kicked off their amazing season on Mar. 3 with a win against Chatsworth High School, winning 3 to 1.
    As the weeks passed, the Boys Varsity Volleyball team continued to dominate their games, beating both San Marcos High School and South Pasadena High School, both with scores of 3 to 2.

    The following weekend,on Saturday Mar. 20, they traveled down to Edison High School to compete in the OC Volleyball championships
    In the game against Hoover High School on Apr. 2, the Apaches didn't let down their guard for one moment, ultimately victorious with a score of 3 to Hoover's 0.
    On Apr. 14, the boys suffered their first loss of the season against John Burroughs High School and lost 1 to 3.
    Determined to turn it around, they then destroyed Glendale High School the next Friday 3 to 0.
    Their only other loss of the season came from Crescenta Valley on Apr. 23.
    Once again, the Boys Varsity Volleyball team rallied up their spirits and went for it in another match against Hoover High school, destroying them 3 to 0.
    After some competition at the Redondo Union Varsity Classic, the team found themselves up against Glendale on May 4. They did not disappoint, winning the game 3 to 0.
    When it came time to face the Falcons again on May 6, the Apaches were looking for revenge. The fact that the game was on not on home territory made the hard-earned 3 to 2 victory all the sweeter.
    Even though their season has ended, they're not done yet. Some are already looking to the next year, the next season, the next opportunity they have to live up to the Apache name.


    Coach has not responded I'm gonna try to find(stalk him out) him.... (:
