Energy — it determines how much a team is willing to win or lose.

For Carlmont’s girls freshman volleyball team, their energy fell in the second set against Woodside on Sept. 20.

Carlmont wiped out Woodside in the first set with a score of 25-15.

During the second set, Carlmont lost their momentum, and it resulted in a score of 21-25.

After, however, in the third set, they turned the game around and fought for their win; they won with a score of 15-7.

In the crowd, I chose to focus on one person, and today, my dad was in the crowd. I am not thinking about the whole crowd, and instead, I am just trying to focus in on who has supported me this whole time.”

“During the first set, our serving was pretty good since we got a few aces. Then in our second set, we were not communicating along with getting our hits in. At that point, we were not focused because we already won the first set, so we were not trying as hard as we should have. In our third set, we realized that we needed to get it together, so we pushed through and won,” said Claire Tseng, a freshman.

Even though the team won again, they barely had a crowd to congratulate them.

There were only 49 people who attended the game.

The amount of people who attend can sometimes reflects on a player’s performance.

“Having a crowd makes a difference on how we view the game. A smaller the crowd makes the game feel more as if we were just practicing against each other. Then, a bigger the crowd allows us to really get into the game because everyone is cheering us on,” said Payton Zolck, a freshman.

For some players, they only need one person in the crowd in order to play their best game.

“In the crowd, I chose to focus on one person, and today, my dad was in the crowd. I am not thinking about the whole crowd, and instead, I am just trying to focus in on who has supported me this whole time,” said Savannah Velschow, a freshman.

Regardless, Carlmont pushed through and managed to secure a victory.

The girls freshman volleyball team has their next home game against Burlingame on Sept. 25.
