'A Message from Coach Stouffer: 9/22/23
Hi JMPS Volleyballers!
As of today, 9/22, since my last update, the JV team has won 3 matches while losing 1. They have played really well over the past 2 weeks. They’ve won against Ridgeview College Prep - a team they lost to at the beginning of the season, Glenview College Prep, and Eduprize Gilbert. They lost a squeaker to Villa de Marie. Great work players and a shoutout to Coach Matt and his assistant Dallas for the success of the team thus far in the season.
Next up for JV is a match on 9/22 against 91st Psalm Christian in a double header with Varsity.
Since my last update on 9/11, Varsity has rattled off 4 straight wins in strong fashion. Many of the teams that Varsity has play have been less experienced. The difficulty in playing less experienced teams is that often the more experienced team plays down to the competition as a result of lack of concentration, hype, motivation, etc. This is not the case with this year’s Varsity team. With the leadership of our 5 seniors and club players, the Varsity has held strong to playing their game and taking care of the volleyball on their side of the court. From the coach’s perspective, it’s satisfying to know that the players are playing to their level no matter their opponent.
Next up for Varsity is 91st Psalm Christian on 9/22. Next week will see the Lady Patriots in for 3 matches on 9/25, 9/26, and 9/28. The biggest and most anticipated match of the season is on Tuesday 9/26 against Basis - Mesa at home. The Patriots lost in a very close 5 set match against Basis - Mesa on their home court earlier in September. We are very much looking forward to the rematch.
Come out and support the Varsity on 9/26. We want to let Basis - Mesa know they came to our house!
Practice Schedule for next week:
JV & Varsity practice on Wednesday 9/27 at Grove Parkway - 4-6.
Stay tuned for the practice schedule for 9/26 for JV - it may be at Mesa Baptist Church.
Until next time - Coach Stouffer.
