Scots set winning record in successful season

Izzy Mitchell
Varsity volleyball celebrates their season with earning the most wins in Carlmont history.

The volleyball nets come down from the Scots’ gym as girls hang up their jerseys until next season.

The Varsity volleyball team has put in their sincere effort since August beating numerous teams and bringing home the most Volleyball wins in a single season. Coach Chris Crader and the girls practiced hard every day on the court achieving 29 wins, the highest in a season, in Carlmont history.

Many of the seniors are proud of what they accomplished on the court this season and will miss their teammates and their final season of volleyball for the Scots.

Senior Makenna Twisselman said, “I am going to miss my teammates a lot. We all grew together this season and I wouldn’t have wished for my final season at Carlmont to go any other way. I hope the other girls continue to play because I know they will achieve so much.”

Many of the underclassmen shared similar sentiments abut the graduating seniors.

“I think we had talent on our team this season, everyone improved a lot and we all came together to win a lot of tough matches. The seniors leaving is tough for everyone because they are so fun and amazing and I am especially going to miss them because I have played with them since Freshman year and they are some of my best friends on and off the court. I am so excited to see what we will do next year,” Said Junior Maya McCllelan.


The seniors all reflect on their final season as they had a significant improvement on the court.

Senior Roz Soheili said, “It is really strange to think that it’s all over. The season was amazing because there were lots of things we had to work hard to improve on. It was amazing seeing the team come together and work to achieve goals.”

Coach Chris Crader also felt his journey with the team had their ups and down, but a lot of improvement and effort came from the season.

“Unfourtanelty for our final CCS game we could just never get rolling. Last season we lost a huge amount of experience, but we won two tournaments, finished second the league, and won 29 matches, the most in school history. We will miss our seniors a lot; they each brought some great qualities to help our team and we can’t replace each one of those unique qualities.”
