Varsity Bearcats Dominate

file_000

With the season rapidly coming to an end, the Varsity volleyball team has managed to tie for first in the league with Woodside High School, both having nine wins and one loss record. The girls have a 5 game win streak as of October 24, which will hopefully help them prepare for their next game against Woodside on October 27.

Outside of league, the Bearcats are 15-10, but have improved their level of play greatly in the league games. Head Coach Andoni Javellana says San Mateo is “not taking any [team] lightly” which is key to their dominance in league so far.

The team has bonded over the course of the season and this has allowed the players to connect and work better together. Coach Javellana says, “team bonding is an excellent way to understand more about each other”. This forms a bond of trust which is required in the sport that depends very much on trust to perform at a high level.

One of the team’s goals for this season, says senior Jazmine Mcdonald is “to get first place in their league and move up from the Ocean division”. At the rate they are playing now, the Bearcats  should be one of the top contenders for first place in their league. The team also hopes to move up to the Bay league.

The Varsity team lost seven valuable players who graduated last year. While this loss seemed like an issue, the team has confidence in their abilities and a desire to win.

Although Burlingame High School is generally our rival school, for volleyball, Mills High School is considered our greatest competitor and last year, the Varsity team lost to them with a score of one set to three sets. This season, the girls have overcame that loss winning 3 sets to 1 and played Mills on October 18th beating them in the 5th set taking the win with 3 sets to 2.
