Then, the team would does various drills, including a particularly effective drill: 100 ball rallies, which helps them focus on their mental games.
Kate Sapasap, ‘18, says, “This year I am extremely confident in team, this is our strongest season yet. We didn’t lose many varsity girls from last season, so we didn’t have to recover much from our loss. We don’t have struggles this year, but we still work hard during our practices to be the best team we can be. We’re looking forward to a great next half of the season.”
Claire Yang ‘19, says, “League-wise this year, we are really strong, and we have an incredibly strong foundation as team.
