     The girls volleyball team is on their road to success. Coach Breezy Ambort coached for 17 years, 11 at Poway High.

      Their Girls’ Varsity Volleyball season started off strong after having a year off. Ambort was happy to be back after being shut down, “It was exciting because so many new people were getting that opportunity to be on varsity that they didn’t get last year,” Ambort said.  

      Ambort says their toughest opponent was against San Marcos, the second ranked in the nation. She said their match against Del Norte was also a tough one for them, however, it was the game they prospered the most in. 

     “Even though they lost in five, they did what they needed to do, and it came down to the last few points,” Ambort said. 

     Hard work and perseverance does not always result in a win, but the team went home with an inner win. 

     Senior Casey Stevens is one of the key assets on the team. Stevens loves having Ambort as her coach. “She can be hard on me in practice, but when I need someone to talk to, she is there,” Stevens said. 

      Senior Katie Carpenter, another asset player on the team, expresses how she loves how Ambort has a special relationship with each player, “I honestly feel like I can go to her, not just about volleyball but life in general,” Carpenter said.

     Carpenter says she has many favorite memories, but one has stuck with her in particular, “My favorite memory is beating Ramona in a spontaneous dance battle at a tournament on homecoming night,” Carpenter said. The girls on the team love to mix up some moves whether it is pregame or postgame vibes, or taking home a dub against another school.
