JV champs have to work for the OAL win
By: Gieanne Aldana
On Thursday, Oct. 26, the girls’ junior varsity volleyball team defeated Oakland Tech and won the championship.
The Wildcats won two sets to one. On the first set, the Wildcats got a 15-point lead because of their service aces. The second set was a close fight.
“I don’t know what happened during the second set,” said Jenie Galicia, a sophomore and JV team setter. “I think we were overconfident because of the result of set number one.”
The score for the second set was 25-27 in favor of Tech. After the loss of a set, the team focused on the third set. The players on the bench cheered when they gained the championship point via service ace of Vivian Nguyen.
Keith Stoker, the JV team’s coach, said he was proud of the way the team worked as a team. He added that he wasn’t surprised that they would win the championship since they were undefeated.
“They played good and worked hard,” said Stoker. “I would definitely coach again next year.”
“I’m extremely proud of (the JV team),” said Daniela Castillo, a sophomore and varsity player. “Varsity wasn’t able to win but at least JV did. Winning a championship is really a great accomplishment.”
