Volleyball season is underway and the lady Cougars are ready to play. Coach Regan Roach is hoping that this season many of the girls will be able to see their success in action.
Out if the 82 girls that tried out, only 26 of them were selected for teams. Volleyball will have an A and B team with two separate coaches. Roach will coach the A team while James Gibson will coach the B team.
“It wasn’t difficult for me to make cuts because I was a returning player, but it was a little nerve wracking,” said eighth grader Halle Bodell.
Both coaches want this year’s team to have a basic understanding of volleyball when the season comes to an end.
“I want this year’s team to work hard on fundamentals of the game,” said Coach Gibson.
To achieve this, Coach Roach reflected on past seasons to see what needs to be better explained. Although the team has a few things to work on, they are very doing well in doing other things such as working well together, being committed to improvement, and being dedicated to making sure what they need to learn to make the team better. During the season the coaches are expecting to see improvement in players and goals being reached.
“I set goals for myself and am working toward them, just as I expect from the players,” said Coach Roach.
One of the goals the team hopes to achieve is a league championship.
“I hope to finish this season as number one,” said eighth grader Jessica Sigler.
The team began its season Nov. 5 at home against Desert Wind. The A team lost to the Tigers, while the B team was victorious.
