On March 13, 2019 was the semi-finals for Mach Volleyball against the classes of 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022. Now the semi-finals took place in the Macintosh Gym and the first match started off during first lunch against the freshman and junior class. The juniors have won the title once, since last year, and we are hungry to get the second title. As for the freshman, they have never practiced for the game until 20 minutes before the game. But, surprisingly they did a pretty good job of keeping the ball up and were very consistent in getting the ball over as much as they could.

The game only went up to 15 due to the amount of time we had from both lunches.

Furthermore, during the first match, both the freshman and juniors were neck and neck with score. But at the end the juniors won by 12-15.

Then the second game started off during second lunch with the seniors Vs. the sophomores. It started off with the sophomores leading with three points to nothing on the scoreboard. The game was very nerve racking, just by watching the ball go back and forth like hot potato. Throughout the whole game, the sophomores and seniors were neck and neck. Until the end of the game ending with a score of 12-15 from the seniors, missing some of their hits and balls dropped on the court.

Leading into the final game, there was a lot of beef and shade being thrown about who will win and who’s the best against the sophomores and juniors while warming up. As the game started, the juniors started off serving first with Ricardo Olivas. The juniors were leading on the scoreboard by 5 points for most of the game. During the whole game the court was all quite, barely any communication and there wasn’t much of a good turn out from the crowd.

As the game went on it was 2-2 out of 5 sets and it was time for the final set that goes to 15 and form the looks of it the sophomores were in their heads due to all their mistakes but the game finally ended with a score of 9-15. Juniors taking the win for the second time.
