Led by Coach Alex Griffiths, the team has been training tirelessly, improving their skills and perfecting their strategies. By winning their first two league games against Crean Lutheran and Pacifica, having a record of 11-1, and being runner up in the Foothill tournament by going 5-1,  their hard work is clear in their flawless teamwork and impressive performance in every match.

Senior Arthur Hoang has been unstoppable on offense.

Captains Trace Oswald and Noah Zapanta lead by example, inspiring their teammates with their exceptional leadership both on and off the court. When their team is faced with challenges on the court, Oswald stated he “Gives them advice when they are struggling” and when they are in need of support off the court they “Do a lot of team dinners which gets them more comfortable with each other.” Whereas, Zapanta makes sure to show support to his teammates by “cheering them on and if they mess up I make sure to let them know it’s okay.”

Oswald’s goal this season is to “get league MVP again” and in order to do that “as a team they need to win league.” Similarly, Zapanta’s personal goal is to “get better and as a team it’s to win CIF this year.” With their guidance, the team has developed a strong sense of coordination and unity, and these goals are in reach.

Some advice from the captains would be to “work hard, and if things don’t go your way, keep at it.” And also that “you’re going to start off slow but you’re going to pick up momentum really quickly,” finished Oswald.

As the season progresses, the Cypress High School boys’ volleyball team continues to set the bar high. With their talent, teamwork, and dedication, they are destined for greatness on the court.
