After sadly saying goodbye to Coach Guy Albitre due to illness, junior varsity Coach Rudy
Alvarez has stepped up to the position and the team is striving to meet his high expectations. Coach Alvarez has been coaching for about ten years now and played volleyball himself in high school. His goals for this season are “definitely” to win league champs, make it to CIF second round, and possibly semi finals.
While the volleyball team lost five seniors last year, they still have seven returning players and Coach Alvarez knows them well enough to dive into working on building their strengths and lessening their weaknesses.
He says that the girls play at their best when they are winning, but so far their greatest challenge seems to be passing. Coach Alvarez sees this as no great issue though, for he remarks that their strengths show in their hitters like Junior Vania Maciel and captains Angela Lam and Kassandra Aguilera.
Volleyball player, Esmeralda Perez, tells us that this year their secret weapon is sophomore, Alina Velo. She’s new to the team, never having played the sport before, but has proven to be a natural with numerous blocks.
Although intimidated, Velo says that she’s grown to love the sport but what she finds most difficult is, “Fitting in with the team because they all have experience, they know the plays, and how to cooperate with each other more.”
