Their victories were a win not only for them but also for the entire school and the community. Aubrey Prior stated,” Our volleyball season was full of so many achievements and so many great memories. This was first season our girls’ volleyball team has made CIF since maybe 2018. We made it through the Wildcard round and to 2nd Round CIF after beating the number one team in our whole division. I am truly very proud of these girls who have worked extremely hard every practice and every game. It was a blessing to be a captain to this team, and I can’t wait till next season!”
