New Season, New Coach

The Girls' Volleyball team welcomes  Ki Choi, who brings with him 15+ years of coaching experience at the high school, club, and collegiate levels. "My goals for the Volleyball Program as the new Head Coach [are to] build a program that is competitive at the highest levels, ensure tradition and pride for the program, school and teams, [and to] educate players not only in volleyball skills but life skills as well," Coach Ki asserted.

Last year’s season, the SI girls' varsity volleyball team finished with a record of 4 wins and 21 losses, placed second to last in the WCAL, and failed to qualify for CCS. Returning players are optimistic about this upcoming season with the help of Coach Ki.

“Last season had its ups and downs,” said Susan Vidalon ’14, a libero/outside hitter. “Although our record didn’t show it, we were successful in playing together as a team. With determination from both the new coaching staff and returning players, we look forward to being a strong and successful team in our league.”

Zoe Wong ’14, a setter and last year’s co-captain, claims, "Going into the season, I feel like we will definitely be a more competitive team with Coach Ki's guidance. We have a lot of strong defensive players, which is always helpful. However, much like last year, we do not have very much height, which means a fast offense will be one of the keys to success during the season.”
