The C, JV, and Varsity LPHS team played against Rampart High School at Lewis-Palmer High School on September 19, 2017.

Anyone who watches a Lewis-Palmer volleyball game can see that the players get along and must work quickly together, they have split seconds to make decisions, and they work incredibly as a team.

“The team gets along very well, we’re like a little family.” Hannah Breedlove 9, who plays Libero for C team.

“We are all really close…seeing each other all the time, it’s really nice, since we connect and we’re together all the time, we connect outside (of volleyball) so then we’re connecting on the court more which helps us then we play really well together.” Kimberly Finkill 11. Finkill 11 is a backrow player for the JV team.

The C team played first, and they played a marvelous game. Winning two out of the three games, they had an overall win, which was no surprise as they have been doing so well.

The JV team played next, also winning two out of the three games. The Junior Varsity team has extraordinary and shocking hits, making the whole audience and other team astonished. They have unbelievable teamwork, and they all get along and work very well together.

Varsity team went last. The Varsity team plays five games unlike the other teams, and they won three out of the five games, making it a win overall. They always impress all, and just like the other two teams, one can really tell they have amazing teamwork and collaborate really well. Most of the Varsity players have been playing all their lives, and are very serious about volleyball at the high school. Juggling grades and other activities along with the hard long hours of volleyball can be difficult, but the Varsity team manages to pull it off. The Varsity team for LPHS has won State Championships many years, and with their record this year of being completely undefeated, it looks like we may see them there once again.

But many people don’t understand how difficult volleyball can actually be behind the scenes. Avery Uhlig 9, Breedlove 9, Michaela Recker 10 and Finkill 11 elaborate on this.

“You have to think more quickly, it’s a fast sport,” Finkill 11

“Some days just aren’t our days…we can get annoyed or mad, so those days just aren’t fun.” Breedlove 9

“What can be difficult is staying positive and not beating myself up when I make a mistake” Uhlig 9

“Mentally I struggle a lot sometimes with getting down on myself and making errors.” Recker 10

“As a team you all make a mistake as a whole, if you individually make a mistake then the whole team makes a mistake, so it’s kinda hard, like if one person gets in a bad mood then the whole team is in a bad mood.” Finkill 11

However, the volleyball team works as a family and they have a plethora of fun times while working hard and there are several things about volleyball that make it all definitely worthwhile.

“I love supporting my high school,” Uhlig 9

“I love how we can have lots of fun but can also have serious times.” Breedlove 9

“The best part about volleyball is after you get a really good play and everyone just comes together and everyone is cheering really loud.” Recker 10

The Volleyball teams are fantastic, and we hope to see Varsity at State Champions once again this year!
