CARMICHAEL, Calif. (KTXL) — Jesuit High School has a lot of good
sports teams every year, but the boys volleyball team may just be
the best yet.
They recently cracked the Top-20 in the national rankings.
“Four or five months ago, it looked like we may not get a season
at all,” said Sam Oshita, a senior. “And then to come out and
just get the start that we did, it’s been incredible honestly.”
This week, the 14-0 Marauders were ranked 16th in the county and
5th in the state.
“Yeah, we were aiming for Top-20 since the start of the season,
and now we can even go Top-15. So, that’s what we’re trying for
next,” said Ethan Smith, a junior.
But Top-15 is not their final goal.
“The teams’ goal is to finish undefeated. They want to go 18-0,”
said Sara Marks, the head coach.
