Godinez High School
Saddleback High School
It’s one of those moments where a team rose to the challenge and really made a change for themselves, their team, and their school by encapsulating a moment in time where everything fell into place. It was senior night, last time to see the Grizzlies in the Orange Coast League, Bravo and Partida has been on varsity for four years, and behind by two games, the Roadrunners came roaring back battling game 3 and 4 by their claws, they close out a farewell parting gift to the Grizzlies by sending them back to their den with a loss. The smiles and excitement of all games to be at was this one. Ruiz kept the sets going for all her hitters; especially Bravo with the front and back row attacks. Each member contributed such effectiveness that, the team was playing all out as one. Exceptional defense play from Narro, several good touches and net play from Zamora and Jimenez, amazing serves from Bravo, Mejia, and Ruiz, and an unforgettable moment for Partida’s RELENTLESS PURSUIT to go beyond the previous points to win the game winning hit in game 5. Nevertheless, the bench was louder and prouder! A memory to last and to talk about. Overall, Saddleback walks out proud of what it means to have determination, desire, and the will to never give up and fight for success. Congrats on well deserve win.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE SENIORS: BRAVO, PARTIDA, NARRO, AND PHAM!
