Volleyball starts at #1

After losing eight and returning with only three varsity players this year, the Ames High Volleyball team has a lot of work to do in order to maintain their spot as number one in the state as a class 4A team. Fans started to worry when the team lost their first two games against Southeast Polk before bouncing back and winning the last three. However, instead of failing under the pressure, the varsity players took this situation and turned it into a form of motivation. “It makes us work twice as hard to keep our spot,” defensive Senior Kylie Drzycimski said. Although the Little Cyclones don’t have as much experience as some of the other teams, they’re developing very quickly, hoping to be their best by the end of the season. One can find that talent isn’t the only key to success for the Little Cyclones. “We love the game, care about each other, and adversity brings out the best in us,” Coach Cindy Holmes said. Players have noticed less drama among each other then that of which you see on other teams. If the team has a bad day of practice they pick each other up and come back the next day stronger than ever. By getting along and helping each other, the Little Cyclones can make the most of their practices consequently resulting in better games throughout the season. The next varsity home game is on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 7:30 p.m. Students are encouraged to come and support the Little Cyclones in their fight to stay at the top.
