With only two games left, one of which being a home game, the Pacific University Volleyball team is looking forward to a strong finish of the 2010 season.
“We come into every practice with the intention of getting better,” said outside hitter Kelsy Takashima.
Takashima also went on to add that the team believes that their last games are just as important as their first ones.
“Every game counts and we’re preparing ourselves everyday to come out and play our best to end the season strong,” said Takashima.
According to Takashima, the team set very high goals heading into the season and although some of those goals may not have been reached the team is doing everything it can to improve.
This season the Boxers faced some challenging teams and had a 3-11-0 record in conference play.
Takashima admits that even though the team may have struggled at some points, a vast improvement has been made from the pre season to now.
“The good news is we have all the talent to compete with the best of the best, so it’s just a matter of putting it all together. I’m confident we’re going to end this season with a bang and that momentum will transfer over to next year’s season,” said Takashima.
Takashima thinks the strength of the team lies in its “scrappy” back row, a consistent setter, and the multiple attacking options up front at the net. No matter who goes in they’re prepared to step up and play.
The Boxers will travel to George Fox on November 5th and host Puget Sound on November 6th.
