On Wednesday, March 6, girls from all grades met in the upstairs gym to practice their hitting technique and get tips from the coach before tryouts which are coming up within the next week.

“For the past few weeks we have been working on volleys, serves and strokes. Around 40 people are trying out, and only 21 people can make the cut, so I’m really nervous,” Heather Stedt (11) said.

Tryouts will be held on Monday, March 11, through Wednesday, March 13 from 2:30 to 5:30.

“Last year no cuts were made, but this year we’re cutting down the number of people who make the team so that we get more practice time and ensure that we get a better win streak,” Meri Dodevska(12) said.

Students in all grades, from freshman to seniors, were practicing on Wednesday to better themselves before tryouts.
