Volleyball defeated in W.S.L. playoffs

The undefeated volleyball team traveled to Cambria to play Coast Union on Nov. 13 to begin West Sierra League playoffs but were defeated, 0-3, by the Broncos. The Eagles had gone 14-0 in the W.S.L. and were league champions.

“We played an experienced, hard nosed volleyball squad that was going to make us earn every rally,” coach “O” (Larry Orrender) said. “Our shortcomings did not lie with the players, who gave their hearts and followed the game plan prepared for Coast. Despite the loss, this 2001-2002 volleyball team, is the school’s most dominant yet.”

All of the seniors received the West Sierra League All-League title. Amber Dragoo and Jennifer Jesser were honored to be a part of the first team selection. Dana Richardson was a part of the second team selection.

“Coast Union was playing well and we were not playing to the best of our ability,” Dani Fries. ?02 said. “Overall I think we played pretty well as a team.”

Fries, the MVP of the W.S.L., now plans to work hard in the off-season to play some college volleyball.

This is the second year that the girls’ volleyball team has won league and qualified for playoffs but has not won the Valley title.

“We played as one and we played hard, and overall our season was successful,” Tiffany Kaiser, ?03, said. “There was unity about the team and I know we’ll all remain best friends forever.”

Many of the student body traveled on a charter bus to attend the playoff game.

“It was cool that we were able to take a bus to Cambria to watch our girls play in the playoffs again,” Evan Stradley, ’02 said. “Even though they lost, we are all still very proud of the team. Just winning league two years in a row is an honor.”

Coast Union played Central Valley Christian and lost 2-3 on Nov. 15. Later in the finals, Immanuel defeated C.V.C, for the Division Five Valley title on Nov. 17.
