Pass.

Set.

Win.

Old, simple tactics like these were used during the girls freshman volleyball team’s third game on Tuesday, September 4, against Sacred Heart Preparatory.

Carlmont creamed Sacred Heart Preparatory in the first set, scoring 25-8.

During the second set, Carlmont defeated them again with a score of 25-17.

At this point, I wanted them to focus on playing their game by having them focus on their passing, setting, and talking.”

“We played simple volleyball, nothing fancy, and I do not think that the other team [Sacred Heart Preparatory] really competed. At this point, I wanted them to focus on playing their game by having them focus on their passing, setting, and talking. I just wanted to make sure that I got all of my players in and get them good playing time,” Freshman Volleyball Coach Gilbert Gilberstadt said.

According to Pakmen Volleyball, a site about former volleyball players and their opinions on volleyball, “Communication is a key ingredient for the successful volleyball game. Obviously, volleyball players should understand each other during the match.”

Teamwork was prominent on and off the court between Carlmont players and coaches.

Megan Kwong, a freshman, has been playing volleyball since middle school; she is an all-around player whose position allows her to serve a lot.

As a team, we made sure to stick to what we know, and that is how we won.”

“In this game, I practiced serving harder instead of just trying to get the ball over. As a team, we made sure to stick to what we know, and that is how we won,” Kwong said.

There were some errors, but it did not stop their team from winning the game.

Nicole Yarovoy, a freshman, has been playing volleyball for a few years with some of the girls who are on her team this year; she is was one of the main setters for this game.

“We tried a new rotation for this game, known as 5-1, instead of usually doing a 6-2. This time, there was only one setter going around instead of two, and that was a different thing to try out. I like doing the 5-1 because I get to play all around,” Yarovoy said.

School teams sometimes move their younger players up to the higher level team which can result in different outcomes for the lower level team.

Gilberstadt said, “Sacred Heart is always known for being a pretty good team, but this year it sounds like all of the good freshman went up to the JV team. Overall, we had a fun game because of that.”
