What a difference a year makes.

Last year, there was no boys’ volleyball team at Weston Ranch.

This year, the Cougars have served, set and spiked their way toward the playoffs in their debut season.

What would it mean for the squad to earn a spot in the Valley Oak League playoffs?

Head Coach Deborah Chavez said it would be the result of coming together as a team.

“They deserve it,” Chavez said, “I’m really proud of them that they’ve worked really hard together.”

Their record of 10-4, and 5-2 in the Valley Oak League (VOL) supports that perspective.  

Then there is their tenacity to never give up and their ability to vanquish opponents.

On March 24, the Cougars played the Sierra High Timberwolves.

Sierra started off with the lead before the Cougars came back and won them in the first match, 25-20. The Cougars gained momentum over the next two matches and dominated 25-13, 25-15.

Looking back, this is one of the games that potentially put in the Cougars into the playoffs.

Again, Cougar players like standout Jarien Falcon said the end of season play has been earned.

“To be able to go to the playoffs shows how much work we put in throughout practices and games,” Falcon said. “I feel like we deserved it.”

Over the past several games, the Cougars appear more organized and physical competitive no matter who their opponent may be. The team never gives an opposing school an easy game.

The Cougars’ final two games are May 1 at Lathrop and at home 5 p.m. May 3 against Kimball.
