The freshman, junior varsity, and varsity volleyball teams started out the season by competing in non-district games and tournaments. Players reflected on the season so far and expressed their hopes for the upcoming district games.

The junior varsity volleyball team won against Conroe in their first game of the season. After that, they faced a few challenges, but the players said they are hopeful that they will come through with wins in the next part of the season. 

“I feel like we have improved a lot since the beginning of tryouts,” freshman Stephanie Ho said. “We have been working together more and trying to improve our communication.”

The team has been trying to grow closer with one another in hopes that it will improve their skills on the court. At the freshman and varsity tournament game against Cypress Creek High School on Sept. 2, the team felt their bond grow closer as they brought home another win.

The energy during the freshman and varsity game was really good,” sophomore Mackenzie Fraizer said. “It was one of our best games we had played throughout the start of the season.”

The varsity volleyball team had an impressive start of the season by winning the non-district games against Stratford, CyFair, Cinco Ranch, Katy, Conroe, and Summer Creek high schools. Despite beating Bridgeland High School in the playoffs last year, the Bearkats faced a tough loss of 3-1 on Aug. 31. 

   “I thought we could have won, but there were a lot of things going on,” junior Ariana Brown said. “We weren’t really working together as a team and that did not help. However, I think we can face them again and win.”

Despite the recent loss against Bridgeland, the varsity team is optimistic that the season will go well as they grow closer as a team.

“I feel like the season is going well so far,” Brown said. “We have hit a few bumps, but I feel like we will make it.”
