Parkside’s women’s varsity volleyball team is doing great this season, after a tough lost against Kent Island, their first game, the girls really picked it up and now have a record of 6-2. “Moving forward from our first game we’ve worked on not only passing and other techniques but really got our mindset in the right place, not over or underestimating any team” varsity captain Abbey Miller said. This year the team lost four seniors, three of the four who were starting players, including star player Sarah ­­­Debipi. “We would always rely on Sarah to get us quick easy points if we were ever down in a game, but now without her on the team we don’t only work harder but also smarter” says Abbey.

While losing Sarah was a hard lost for the team, they got a new addition to the team, new head coach Eric Wood. Dei Sison, background defense specialist said, “Coach is great, he may be a little unexperienced but he works hard and does great with us girls”. To help the rams have a successful season Coach Eric made a deal with the players that if their record is 13-2 or better by the end of the season the girls get to do his hair and put makeup on him, great motivation for a great year!

While talking to Dei Sison about the team and their upcoming year she brought up valid issues with the program. “We don’t have enough equipment” she said, which could be a big issue because how are they supposed to win games when you don’t have enough equipment for everyone to practice with. Dei also brings up how underrated volleyball is, “It’s a tough sport, you can have one star player on a soccer team or a basketball team and still score points and win games but when it comes to volleyball the whole team has to be good and work as one or you won’t win”. Parkside’s women’s upcoming volleyball season looks bright and all the players excited not only for a winning season but to also give new head coach Eric Wood a makeover!
