JV volleyball has a 4-0 track record this season, winning against Truckee and Wooster, Sparks, and Hug. One player that has stood out is Karyn Morton, a sophomore who recently went from a middle hitter to an opposite hitter to benefit her team.
“She has had to take on a new position this year and shows great flexibility and positive disposition with being moved around and asked to play pretty much wherever I need her,” said JV coach Cassandra Jenkins.
Morton is the type of player who always cheers on her teammates no matter the score, or situation on the court.
“This season started off a little tough and my performance on the court improved with my attitude over time,” said Morton. “I’ve had to overcome a back injury and I am still overcoming a small knee injury.”
Having someone keep the attitude on the court in check a comeback is always in store for the Lady Bucks all because they have a team cheerleader.
“I feel like I’m our team’s cheerleader on the court,” said Morton.
One thing about volleyball is that when the morale of one person is down, the rest of the team follows after and you can lose a game just by focusing on the mistakes.
“Another great attribute Karyn possesses and brings to the court is her overall cheery demeanor, she is always happy and bubbly,” said Jenkins. “Her presence on the court is contagious and a much-needed asset during detrimental times in a game.”
