The CV girls volleyball team is diving into districts this weekend; don't pass up a chance to support them with first round match against Manheim Township. The Eagles are the 4th seed in D III. 

Jackie Orner and her assistant coaches Caitlyn Bodek and Terry Ranck paved the road to success for these girls at an early age. To be successful in the postseason, the girls set a few goals for themselves and the team.

“As a team, we need to work harder and more intensely in practice so the work pays off in our games,” senior Hanna Cordle said.

“I need to have a personal connection with my hitters since I’m the setter. I know where they want the ball and I can trust them to kill it when it is over the net,” sophomore Kara Lehman said. “If we lose during postseason, we will not lose to a team that we could have beat. We would lose working our hardest,” Lehman said.

The team has gone through substantial changes this year after losing their favorite assistant coach, but this does not mean the girls won’t keep their head in the game.

“When we didn’t have the support from Terry Ranck anymore, we had our ups and downs. The main goal is to work on our consistency and not lose any games,” Lehman said.

If the Varsity team loses in Districts, the season is over. In these tense games, positivity is essential.

“I just want to make the most of the season with my friends I’ve known since 7th grade and to have as much fun as possible,” senior Mya Wotring said.

Big rivals may scare some teams, but the girls are ready to take anyone on.

“Our biggest rivals would have to be Hempfield and Exeter, although we already beat both teams this season. We should be able to get that gold medal if we work hard and together,” Wotring said.

Varsity girls volleyball likes to have fun but know they can still be successful. A successful team knows their flaws and what they need to work on.

“We have great players and a capable team of winning, but we need to play for each other and not ourselves. If we get down on ourselves, we can not climb back into our shells, but come together,” Lehman said.
