Seven sophomores, two juniors and one senior make up the young varsity volleyball squad.

“With seven sophomores on the varsity team, I believe that we are building a great team and overall program for Liberty. It is exciting to think about the next few years,” Head Coach Trina Christensen said.

With the majority of the team being sophomores, the team will have the opportunity to stay together for the future, which the players feel will help the team. continue to bond as a team and grow stronger.

“We all really love the sport and plan on sticking with it and we all work really hard, these girls are the most determined that I have ever played with, and we all support each other.  We could go really far,” said player, Kassy Mendoza, 10.

And going far is the goal, hoping to place in the top three in KingCo.

“We played a great match against Mercer Island which I believe was a turning point for the team,” Christensen said.

Even though that match ended with a defeat, the team was able to win one of the five games, the first team in KingCo to do so this year. An important match in the future for the 2-4 patriots is their match against Mt. Si on October 28th.

“We are a young team, but very dedicated. The rest of the season should be exciting” senior memebr Malia Parilla said.
