Thursday, August 24, 2017, the Junior Varsity Volleyball team went to Glendale to play their first match of the season against Desert Heights Preparatory Academy (DHPA). They had a great experience even though they lost. The first set went to DHPA 25-15. The second set was much closer at 25-22, but DHPA won that set too, thus winning the match 2-0. Constantly cheering each other on, the team managed to stay pumped up the entire match, both on the court and on the bench. This was due in large part to Coach Dana keeping them organized and excited throughout the whole match. Although disappointed by the loss, the team remains determined to learn from this experience and improve their game play next week.
