It’s been a successful volleyball season for the Lady Falcons varsity volleyball team, led by the seniors Whitney Hunt (‘20), Izzy Wynn (‘20), Sydney Durana (‘20), Malia Wienstroer (‘20), Ali Cordano (‘20), Dylan deGuzman (‘20), and Sophia Overstreet (‘20). The seven have played all four years of high school at CB and were honored on Senior Night on October 23 when they won in straight sets against Sacramento High to wrap up an undefeated league championship regular season.

Sophia Overstreet, co-captain of the team and four-year varsity player, reflects on her career as a Lady Falcon, calling the event “bittersweet”. But the night is also a reward.

“It’s sad that it’s ending, but it’s like an accomplishment because we’ve played for so long,” Sophia said with a smile.

Her co-captain and the team’s libero Sydney Durana is hoping to make the most of her final season at CB.

“It’s sad because we only get one senior year, and we have to make every moment count.”

Volleyball has become a second home and family to the team.

“Some of my best friends are on the team,” Sydney says with a wide smile. “I trust them with everything, and it’s so nice to have friends that you see everyday.”

The team provides a comfortable space that allows the girls to grow.

“Even though you many be dealing with something outside of volleyball, you have a place to express yourself on the court and in practice,” Sophia stated.

After a heartbreaking loss at Holy Court, the team rallied back by winning the Capital Athletic League with a 12-0 record. Reflecting on her time on the varsity team, Sophia remembers a time when they were the underdogs.

“We were playing the top nationally ranked team, Pitman High School, and we were going to get killed. But we beat them and we finally realized us as a team can play at that high of a level,” Sophia says with pride.

The Lady Falcons are the third seed and off to the Sac Joaquin Division III playoffs starting October 29 at 7:00 PM in the Ron Limeberger ’53 Gymnasium vs. Woodland High School. Come out and support your Women’s varsity volleyball team on the road to another section title.
