Following a sprinkle of losses at the beginning of the season, both the varsity and junior varsity (JV) girls volleyball teams have improved in strategy, resulting in a 36-5 winning streak.
The varsity girls team stands at 15-3.
“I definitely think we are a team with some really close bonds, which truly betters us as a team,” said sophomore and middle blocker Trisha Razdan. “In team sports, it’s really important to trust your teammates, and our friendships provide us with that trust.”
The varsity team defeated Los Gatos in its most recent match, with a final score of 3-0. Razdan credits victories like this to a strong game plan.
“Our strategy is mainly just to read the opponent as well as we can. Overall, we have strong offense and defense, so the key for us is just to know what we are up against.”
The JV girls team stands at 21-2.
“Our success comes down to how cohesive our team is and how well we can work together,” said middle blocker and sophomore Grace Thayer.
“Because we don’t have assigned captains, our setters really help us because they are the merge putting back row and front row together,” Razdan said.
On Oct. 17, the two teams hosted their annual dig pink matches dedicated to raising money for the breast cancer awareness foundation.
The team beat Los Altos on Oct. 17 2-1. Both varsity and JV have games against Monta Vista on Oct. 19. The JV and varsity teams plan to implement their skills and playing strategy in these incoming matches.
“In our last match … I think we did really well when it came to hitting to specific spots, targeting opposing players when we served, and being ready for any ball they gave us. We hope to continue this streak of high level playing.”
