Spring has sprung! And with April Showers and May Flowers also comes the first Hollywood Wilshire League Spring Season of Volleyball!
It took some doing but Saint James put together an amazing volleyball team! With some stops and starts with their first practice being rained out, the players had just one practice under their belts before meeting their arch rivals, CEE (Center for Early Education). And then on the day of the match Conor couldn’t make it and Santiago and Emerson called in sick!
But the show must go on! And SJS gallantly marched on the court with only 5 players (Ryan, Haley, Elia, Lauren and Le Shaun) to challenge CEE’s 6! With some solid serving and hard fought points, SJS beat CEE 25-22! The second game was neck and neck to the final play with CEE pulling ahead to win by 2 points 27-25. The third game was the tie-breaker up to only 15 points. And although they fought hard throughout the match, SJS lost 9-15.
Coach Matthew and Jenn couldn’t be prouder of their team’s performance!! They are looking forward to a rematch with CEE later on in May with a well practiced team at full strength!!
