The Corcoran High varsity volleyball team posted two losses last week against Hanford West and Orosi.
Corcoran lost three games (19-25, 16-25 and 22-25) to Hanford West last Wednesday and to Orosi (15-25, 19-25 and 21-25) last Thursday.
“My best servers are in a slump right now,” said Coach Anton Glenn. “Our stats and percentages are lower than expected at this point. We have been averaging six blocks a game between our big three-Julissa Lopez, sophomore Aly Fernandez and Haley Zavala. There is a ton of pressure on our younger athletes to perform.”
Sophomore Leah Holquin plays the back row for Corcoran and is one of the team’s leading servers.
“Leah is often called upon to play the net as well,” Glenn added. “We are struggling to find ourselves right now but with all this young talent, good things will come.”
In JV action, the girls beat Hanford West by winning game one 25-18 and game three 15-12.
“This year’s JV team is going to do great things,” commented Coach Renee Glenn. “I have leaders like Julissa Acevedo and Tatiana Karabian. We have a strong front row with girls like Julissa Castillo and Brianna Ramirez who both happen to be freshmen.”
Glenn also gave the nod to Ashley Salas who already has come a long way since last season and her back row consists of returners who include Tonia Montanio, Alyssa Silva and Maria Lara.
