The Detroit Cristo Rey Lady Wolves Volleyball team ended its regular season with a 5-8 record, giving them the most wins in the team’s short history. Reflecting back on the season, team members said one of the best experiences is the fun they had.
“It's a great learning experience for me and for the people who haven't played before,” said Aleena Malik, a sophomore transfer student. “It's a great way for people to come together and get to know each other.”
The team credits their positive experience to good sportsmanship: even when they lose, they don't make it a big deal. Instead, they admit to themselves that they could've done better and try harder the next time.
In addition to the team earning their most wins in a season, three members received Catholic League Honors. Paige Love received All Catholic, Adriana Dent received All League and Alicia Stanley received All Academic.
Looking forward to next year, team members say they will focus on building positive attitudes and keeping their love for the game alive.
“Playing volleyball is one of my favorite things to do,” said junior Yulisa Hermosillo, who has been playing volleyball for six years. “When I'm playing, I get this unexplainable feeling that everyone gets when they do something they love.”
