We have been working really hard on practice and making sure all of our players are comfortable with their skills.” said Coach Lisa Wentzell. 

   University has won twice against Oak Ridge this season. “I am more than excited that the girls have been working really really hard to achieve our goals and we are ready. We are working a lot on serving and how they can reach the ball, positions, and passing,” said Coach Belinda Guzman.

   The record for the season so far is 5-6, with three games left. They had a 2-2 record for home games and 3-4 for away games.The varsity team is spending  time improving their communication skills as a team in order to prepare for future games. “We did some work over the summer, tryouts and practicing, and it was so fun. But it’s a lot because it’s everyday and the games start at 7 pm. It’s hard to do homework and stuff but it’s worth it,” said senior Sofia Franklin.
