Volleyball is a sport played by two teams that consists of 12 players, 6 on each side. The two teams are separated by a net in the middle of the court. The point of the game is to try to ground the playing ball on the opposing team’s side of the court. The two teams play a minimum of 2 games and 3 at most. The first two games play to 25 unless a team beats the same team twice in a row. If each teams wins one then they play another game, but only to fifteen. If there is a tie between teams (25 to 25) then they play for 2 extra points. Here at West we have 3 teams. These teams are known as, C team, Junior Varsity, and Varsity. Today we asked some of our volleyball players and the coaches about themselves and why they are such a great team. We asked the team captain, Paige, some questions and this is what she said. “What was the hardest game you’ve you played so far?” she replied with, “The hardest game we’ve played so far was Pinnacle”. The points for this game were 25 to 27, Pinnacle winning by 2. Paige has been playing volleyball for a total of two years. She practices everyday with the rest of the team and is the outside hitter. The next person we interviewed was the C team coach, Mr. Bergland. During school Mr. Bergland teaches the middle school students, but after he coaches C team volleyball. The first question we asked was, “What was the hardest game your team has played so far” in which he replied with, “Kipp”. We then asked, “What inspired you to be a volleyball coach”, he responded with, “I felt I needed to contribute to something… to contribute to society”. “What is the hard part about coaching the girls?”, he said, “Time commitment is a hard part when it comes to coaching”. That concludes the interview with him. The next person we interviewed was 9th grader, Zaelene. The first question she was asked was “How long have you been playing volleyball?” she replied with, “3 years”.
