District 9-5A champions for the last two seasons, the volleyball team is seeking its third straight title.

“We have been focusing on being less predictable offensively and communication,” head coach Clark Obrele said. “​I feel confident that we will fix what we need to in order to give ourselves a better shot at winning.”

Starting the non-district portion of their schedule with a loss to Weatherford on Tuesday, the team plays Bishop Lynch in their first home game of the season at 5:45 p.m.

“The difference between this [game] and last is we now know how it feels to lose,” senior Damiana Paris said. “And we don’t want to feel that again.” 

With a late start to the season’s games due to COVID-19 restrictions, adjustments were made to the schedule adding games every other Saturday to the traditional Tuesday and Friday games. They are used to playing on Saturdays in club and in normal seasons when we play in tournaments,” Obrele said. “They may suffer from fatigue a little, but our team has a lot of depth, so I think they will be fine.
