Women’s volleyball still undefeated

By beating L.A. Pierce and Moorpark in only three games each, the Warriors improve to 5-0 and hope to continue their undefeated streak against tough Santa Monica.

“Santa Monica’s solid,” Coach Le Valley Pattison said. “It’s young in the season so I’d like to make a good impression and come out and do some damage.”

Although Santa Monica’s record is not as good as the Warriors’, they still pose a challenge, but the team believes it can overcome it.

“I think they’ll be a harder team to beat than most of the teams we’ve played so far, but I still think that we’re really strong right now and we’ll be able to beat them,” Beverly Hazell, who had 26 kills against L.A. Pierce and Moorpark, said.

However, the team is not taking anything for granted and does not think it will be an easy match.

“They are a really good team and I hear that they have great defense,” Hazell said.

In the Santa Monica Classic that took place on Saturday, the Warriors defeated L.A. Pierce 30-20, 30-28, 30-15 and defeated Moorpark 30-9, 30-18, 30-19.”

We came out really strong in the beginning; we beat both teams in three games,” Maddie Mosebar, who had three blocks, said.

So far this season, the Warriors have won all of their games, but sometimes they have played down to the level of their competition and made the matches harder on themselves. In this invitational, however, they were in control.

“We came out aggressive,” Pattison said, “We did a much better job not letting the other team dictate the tempo of the match.”

Also, the team is doing a better job distributing hits and building team unity.”

Last year we set our middles a lot more, and this year we’re still getting used to everybody so we aren’t able to do that right away,” Hazell said.

“I think as we progress in the season that we’ll be able to set the middle, and everyone will even out.”

Behind a strong hitting offense and an even stronger defense, the Warriors hope to continue in their wining ways for the rest of the season.

The team played Santa Monica yesterday, but scores were not available at press time.
