Foster fall sports wrapup | Volleyball

Three players received all-Seamount League honors this season. Junior hitter Ariana Serafica was named to the second team and junior hitter Reyleen Gogo and junior libero Maria Ibanez received honorable mentions.

A young Foster’s girls volleyball team, which competed in the 2A district playoffs for the second year in the row, is making plans for next season, says coach Brandi Travess.

Travess hopes the team, which finished fifth in the Seamount League with a 7-7 record, can keep building on this year’s accomplishments.

“I am hoping to start a winning tradition for volleyball at Foster,” she said.

Three players received all-Seamount League honors this season. Junior hitter Ariana Serafica was named to the second team and junior hitter Reyleen Gogo and junior libero Maria Ibanez received honorable mentions.

Last year the girls made the district playoffs but lost two straight games. This year, the team lost to Steilacoom High School 3-0 and Washington High School 3-1.

The team didn’t pick captains this year because everyone leads the team in her own way and the players wanted “to keep the strong team vibe,” said Travess.

“Our biggest advantage comes from the team mindset that the girls have cultivated amongst each other,” she said. “They get along really well, work hard for each other and always support their teammates’ efforts.”
