The Santa Monica Women's Volleyball team began league play this last week and are currently 1-1 in the Western State South Conference going 4-6 overall to date inside a season where the Corsairs have been learning, growing, and steadily improving.
Corsairs Head Coach Nicole Ryan said that her team was doing the best it could without two of their key players.
Players that have stepped up this season have been middle blockers Justyce Smith and Michelle Smith, and outside hitter Hanna Pope.
Team captain Bianca Ngo and libero Jane Siri have also strongly contributed to the team this season.
On Wednesday the Corsairs played away against Glendale (0-10) in their first league game of the season and won 3-1, but lost Friday to Canyons 3-0.
The Corsairs play against league rival West Los Angeles College (0-4) at home Wednesday Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. in the Corsair Gym and at home against LA Pierce (16-0) Friday Oct. 12 in the Corsair Gym before heading off to play Citrus College (7-5) away the following week on Oct. 17.
