On 2 Fridays and 1 Monday in October, boys volleyball try outs were held at 5:30 after girls volleyball games/practices.
The first Friday, 23 boys showed up for the try outs, but 43 signed up to try out for the team. Coach Morgan said out of what she saw, everyone trying out definitely had the capability of making the team because they all looked like they had potential and if they all showed up the next 2 try outs, they’d all make it.
JV boys and girls coach, Jose Salinas, and Varsity boys and girls coach, Jean Morgan-Dalessi, inspected the boys and their skills as they returned the ball to each other in pairs as a warm up. There were approximately 15 returning players, but Coach Dalessi made it CLEAR that their spots were not reserved for them just because they have been on the team before. As try outs go along, Coach Dalessi and Coach Salinas split up, making the boys do separate drills, then switching off. As they did this, both coaches thoroughly inspected all the boys and the skills they already maintained.
The next two try outs went almost the same way as the first, with only a few drills done a little differently. At the final try out, some boys showed up that had never been there before. Coach Dalessi seem a bit stressed because she realized, “This may be the first time in history that the boys volleyball team has to cut a few people that try out.”
After much time and thought put into the new boys volleyball teams, here are the final boys who have made the team. (This is only tentative until 20 week grades come out. The complete final list will be announced around January along with who makes JV and Varsity).
