Ending the season with a 14-2 record, the girls of the volleyball team boasted a strong season, including a conference championship win.

While almost being undefeated in their division, the girls lost their last game of the regular season, finishing 14-1. They earned a first-round bye in the playoffs and then lost in the sectional semi-finals.

Throughout the season the girls had a few slip ups on the fundamentals of volleyball but quickly bounced back as their coach steered them in the right direction. The girls never lost sight of what they really wanted: division champs.

Being a part of the team for so long and having new girls join was a challenge, but the girls always kept their heads up and communicated when needed to fix errors.

“I’ll always remember our senior game and our pink out game because they were very challenging games, but we pulled through and won,” said senior Raven Brown.

Coach Ronda Shelley said the players’ willingness to listen and learn is one of the main reasons for their success. “They want to win more than any team I have coached. They’re tenacious and have a lot of heart,” she said.

Junior Taylor Taormino, a varsity player, said the team has benefited from three seasons in which a core group of athletes have been on the court together as junior varsity, and now varsity players. According to Taylor their relationships and communication have improved over the years, bringing them to where they are now.

“This year was like a whole different team that came on the court,” she said. We can’t wait to see what the Bluebird girls do on the volleyball court next year.
