Members of the girls varsity volleyball team huddle together to prepare for the its Ontario Christian game.

The RCHS girls volleyball team started the season and currently has an 8-5 record. Despite early losses at the start of the season, losing against Lakewood High School 0-3 and Harvard-Westlake High School 2-3 on Aug. 12, 2023, the team turned around its record. On Aug. 15 the varsity volleyball team won its first home game against King High School with a score of 3-2. The team continued its win streak on Aug. 17 by defeating Glendora 3-1.

“I’m really enjoying this season,” said junior Carina Zaldivar. “I feel like we have a lot of new and returning pieces, but, like, I think our bond this year is way stronger than it has been in the past, and I’m very excited for what’s to come.”

Later in the season at a tournament, the team lost 3-0 against Torrance and defeated Millikan 3-1 on Aug. 19. After the tournament, the team went on to win its second home game against Ontario Christian on Aug. 22 with a score of 3-1.

Later on, they lost 3-1 against Murrieta Valley on Aug. 24. On Aug. 25, they won a home game with a score of 3-1 against Claremont. On Aug. 28-29, they won 3-0 both against Ayala and Bonita. On Aug. 31, they won a home game against Santiago with a score of 3-2.

“I think we’re performing pretty well for it being preseason and just the beginning,” said Zaldivar. “Like I said, the bond is very strong, and our connection this year is also different on the court. The way we play is, like, more cohesive I would say. So I think we´re performing really well for it just being the start.”

The next home game for the Lady Cougars will be Thursday, Sept. 14 against Etiwanda at 4:45 in the gym!
