The Santa Rosa volleyball team has started the season strong. Their pre-season started in August and will continue in October. Their schedule consists of games twice a week and practice three days a week. The varsity team has 13 members, coached by Rob Beal, and junior varsity has 11, with coach Kathy Hower. One of the latest matches they had was against Piner High School on Sept. 6. Junior varsity went first, and their team members were very focused and aggressive in their play from practice to the matches. J.V. had excellent teamwork and throughout the whole match they cheered each other on. They did end up losing to Piner’s J.V. team, scoring twenty to twenty five in the first set and nineteen to twenty five in the second set.
