The varsity volleyball team went to visit the community garden on Sept. 21.

“The reason we went to the garden was because I know Ms. Belmontez does a lot of it on her own, and 28 more hands would help her out,” Coach Lori Ybarra said. “Community hours are very important to our program, especially our seniors.” 

Volleyball players help out and learn about the garden.

There were about 35 different beds in the garden with over 43 different vegetables like carrots, squash, bell peppers, and jalapenos.

A freshman varsity player, Klarissa Arriaga, said the team enjoyed eating some of the food.

“ [My favorite part was] getting to pick the veggies and eat them. Also one of the girls was eating jalapeños and couldn’t find any water,” Arriaga said.

Volleyball for all 15 varsity girls is nothing but teamwork and dedication.

“Well, everything we do is about teamwork this was just a different type of teamwork,” said Coach Ybarra. “The girls always had great teamwork this just enhanced it.”

The varsity girls have had a total of 4 wins with 10 upperclassmen and two new freshmen.

“The two new freshmen are a great addition to the team,” senior varsity player Karizma Matelski said. “They’re great for freshman!”

The volleyball team will take on Madison High School at 5 p.m. at Blossom.
