Briahna Owens, 8th Grader
Owens, who plays back row for B team, says that her current position also her favorite position because all the action happens there. Owens favorite part of the game is when everyone comes to the games, and you get to show off all our hard work we have down in practice. The last game she said she was, ”very stressed but determined.” “My favorite part about practice, is that I get better each and everyday. I learn new things all the time and get closer with my teammates.” The thing she likes most about the season is getting to meet new people and improving in volleyball.
