The women’s volleyball team has their eyes on conference play starting tomorrow afternoon.
Overall, the team in 8-6 on the season.
Although the record isn’t ideal, players are optimistic for the season.
“We are working through the kinks right now to better prepare for conference play,” said junior Sarah Labra, team captain. “We are a very talented team.”
The players are using fundamentals they learned this summer.
“We have improved in foot speed and endurance,” Labra said. “We all … complete these summer workouts, so we can pick up where we left off in the fall.”
Not only were the women able to increase their knowledge of the game, they were also able to introduce new members to the team.
“Preseason was challenging, being an incoming freshman,” Nico Morris said.
Morris said the rest of the season should go well if her and her teammates stay dedicated to the sport.
“There is definitely a ton of potential for this season,” Morris said. “Our team gives a lot of effort, and if we keep working hard to get better and learn to finish we should have a very good chance in being one of the top teams.”
Having the dedication and motivation to play volleyball helps when it comes to putting in the work, but Labra said the team’s bond helps to drive each member do their best.
“We all support and love each other,” Labra said. “Which is something incredibly special and rare to find in women’s sports.”
Students and community can catch the team in action at their next home game Wednesday.
