“Bump, set, and spike” comes to an end as the varsity volleyball team has had a rewarding season.

Throughout the fall season, the Scots have won 27 games and only lost four games.  With vigorous practices and inspirational teamwork, the team came together and had positive results for the 2017-2018 season.

For many of the team’s valued players such as Maya McClellan, Sophie Srivastava, Heather Chao, Tai-Mei Chang, and Emma Vanoncini, all seniors, this season is their final season of playing for Carlmont volleyball.

“I encourage the girls to bond more outside of volleyball and to get to know each other well earlier in the season because the closer you are off the court, the better you will play on the court. I want to thank them all for a great season and I am going to miss them all next year,” said Maya McClellan.

Many of the underclassman players will miss the seniors and the talent they have brought throughout their years of playing. Although they will miss their teammates dearly, they are proud of the final season they were able to accomplish and what they will achieve in their future.

Alisha Mitha, a sophomore, said, “We will definitely miss our seniors because each one brings something different to our team. They are great role models for the lower classes. The team will not be the same without them.”

McClellan finished the season earning second place in number of kills with 290 this season. Captain McClellan will continue her volleyball career as she is committed to the University of Nevada, Reno, and will continue to excel in her talent.

Srivastava finished first place in the league in assists with a total of 649.

Mitha ranked in the top five in her league in hitting average with a percentage of .339.  Morgan McClellan, a sophomore finished the season third with 45 serving aces.

Vanoncini said, “Our team had an amazing season for Carlmont. We have beaten some of the best teams in California. I have gotten really close to my team this year and I will miss playing with them so much. They are all amazing volleyball players and my advice is that they keep working hard and do not take your senior year season for granted.”

The girls will begin CCS Saturday, Nov. 4 at seven o’clock at Carlmont as their opponent is to be determined.
