“I think the season went really well. After our first scrimmage against Coronado I was uneasy on how our team would do because of lack of bonding and communication with each other but as we continued our season I had more confidence in our team,” expressed junior Kenith Lim.  “I was more than happy to have played with this team. Now that season is ending, I am happy because I believe we will take CIF and get Hoover it’s first CIF win for volleyball, but I am also sad because I have grown rather close to our seniors. They are like brothers to me. Next year I am longing to play with the upcoming juniors. With strong communication and bond with each other I think we can place high up on the charts, OHANA.”
