The Girl’s Varsity Volleyball team is on a hot streak that cannot be broken. Everything the team has worked on during pre-season and practices has been showing on the court and through their undefeated 10-0 record, their most recent win being against a long time rival, Masterman High School. Some intense sibling rivalry on the court fueled the fire for Senior Captain Serena Schwartz (277) during this game, as she went head to head against younger sister Isabelle Schwartz. Schwartz then boasted of the team’s cohesiveness this season, stating that “our team is on top right now and it’s an amazing feeling that all the hard work were all putting in is really showing.” It is evident through not only the team’s undefeated record but also their relationship together off the court that this team is something special and has big goals for the rest of the season to come.
When asked how he felt the team was fighting through the season, Mr. Leong, the varsity coach and a math teacher had nothing but positive things to say. “Honestly, these girls are truly giving it their all and putting 110% into every game and practice. I couldn’t ask for more, and have high hopes that we will be champions.” The attitude of the players and coach is one of the main dynamics this team has going for them. Watching them on and off the court, each of the players has a connection deeper than just volleyball.
Senior captain, Marcela Dow (277), who is a four year veteran of Central’s Girls’ Volleyball team explained how badly this team wants to continue and finish out this season on top. “So many players on our team have been playing together for 4 years now, each year we overcome different obstacles and this year it’s all just falling into place.” As they near the end half of the season, it’s clear that this team has nothing but positive thoughts, determination, and high hopes, and are set on bringing the title of Public League Champions back to the halls of Central.
