This season, College Prep Girls’ Volleyball ended strongly with an overall record of 19-9. Integral parts of varsity volleyball throughout their four years, seniors Annie, Haley, and Lucy represented their team to the fullest extent as they played their hearts out in the recent game versus Saint Joseph High School in Alameda. This last game signified the end of a very impressive season at CPS.
This past Saturday, the Cougars traveled to St. Joe’s for their final game this season. Earlier that week, the squad smashed Sonoma Academy in a three-game defeat, propelling them into Saturday’s game. However, St. Joe’s proved to be unstoppable. Back in September, they beat College Prep twice, so the players knew this NCS game would be challenging. Captain Lucy Moradian (‘15) told us Friday, “we know St. Joe’s’ abilities. They are a very talented team and it’s going to take our ‘A’ game Saturday if we expect the win.”
Unfortunately, the Cougars fell short. In game one, St. Joe’s barely pulled ahead with a win of 25-20. Game two was almost identical, with a result of 25-19. In game three, St. Joe’s pulled away with a 25-10 win, ending the 2014 volleyball season for College Prep.
After the game, Moradian noted that “even with a larger team of 14, everyone made tremendous improvements throughout the season. Thanks to Tran and our three coaches, we all were pushed to our limits and we definitely ended the season both mentally and physically tougher than when we started. I’m honored to be apart of such an amazing group of girls.”
Although this season has come to an end, all players represented their impressive skills on the volleyball court. With this last game, CPS has to say goodbye to its three seniors, Annie, Lucy, and Haley, all of whom led the team to success. The three, without a doubt, will thrive as they move on to new experiences. With a solid group of juniors, sophomores, and freshmen, CPS should look forward to an amazing 2015 season.
