Varsity Volleyball Wins League Completely Undefeated

The Lady Saints win league without dropping a single set for the first time since 2009

The San Dimas Lady Saints Varsity Volleyball team is the undefeated Valle Vista League Champions for the third year in a row. This year the Saints not only were undefeated in their games but also did not lose one set which has not happened since 2009.

The Saints had a pretty good season all around. They were 14-7 before league began, including beating their cross-town rival Bonita High School, not only once, but twice. The Saints prepared hard during preseason so when league began they were ready. The Saint’s first game was against Charter Oak, then, Diamond Ranch, West Covina, Northview, and Covina. They would play each team twice in that order. In almost every set the Saints destroyed their opponent. 

The Saints went into the playoffs ready and eager. The Saints played a tough opponent: Mary Star of the Sea High School. Unfortunately, the Saints fell short losing 1-3, ending their season. This was not what the Saints were hoping for in their playoff run, and they were disappointed because they believed that they didn’t play to the best of their ability.

Although the Saints did not end how they were expecting in the playoffs they still had a very successful season. When asked why Senior Captain Aydan Romero believes this season was so successful she responded, “Although it didn’t end the way we wanted to I think it was extremely successful because of our coaches. They made this season so much fun and created such an amazing and strong group of girls”. 

Next year the Saints are ready to come back and prove what they have. Junior Priscilla Romero shares what she thought about this season and her expectations for next season, “I believe that this season was definitely the season we could’ve shown all of our talents and what we had to offer, but as you know it didn’t go as planned during playoffs. Going into next year, I still believe we hold that same chance as we have strong returners coming back next season. I also believe that we will have more trust and familiarity in our coaches because we now know who they are and how well they coach. In preparing for next year, I think that our team will focus on really capitalizing our strengths in our offense while also working together to collectively become stronger defensively”.

The Saints did not have the playoff run that they were hoping for, but they still had a successful season, and are looking forward to next season with many returning players, and their outstanding coaches.
