Hanako Kawasaki reflects on the perseverance displayed by the U19b Girls Volleyball team in this year's City Championships.

Team B came in to the City Championships with high expectations. We were all nervous, yet excited for all the matches. Our first match was against ABC, a team which we had never played against before. With confidence, we warmed up and were very enthusiastic for the first set. As the game begun, we quickly realized that our flaws from other games had shadowed us to the championships. Our nerves got the better of us, and we were not as attentive as we usually are during practice. Unfortunately, our slow reactions and poor communication resulted in us losing the first set – a bad start to our first game. Determined to bounce back, we had some good rallies in the second set, however our serves let us down and it was too late for us to come back.

We decided it was because of our nerves and how uncomfortable it made us during the game. Looking forward to our next game against SSIS, we tried to calm ourselves down and reflected on the issues last game. Knowing SSIS was a formidable opponent, we did not expect much and played our best. Our serves, returns and rallies had improved exceptionally from the previous game. There were moments of greatness, where we had strong, successful aces and spikes. However, luck was not on our side and we could not come back.

Although we didn’t perform the way we hoped to, we did put in our best effort. I personally, could not have asked for a better team. The way we encouraged each other, and never gave up was definitely a highlight of our team. For a team that hasn’t played much together, we did put up a strong fight against other very experienced teams. I know that next year, Team B will definitely come back stronger.
