The Varsity Girls Volleyball players took home the first-place trophy from the ISSL Championship at ISZL in Zug on Saturday. Although two of the ISSL teams were unable to come to the tournament this year, the competition remained high and the girls rose to the challenge to emerge with the championship.
The Varsity players played like a true team in the tournament. First up was a five-set game against ICS in which the Tigers won 25-6, 25-10, and 25-10. With great teamwork between Valentina Correa da Silva '19 at the net and Luiza Tiago de Faria '19 with assists, the ladies allowed very few points to be scored against them. Cristina Cecilia Estevez '19 and Isabela Sofia Lima Felippe '19 had some excellent saves and good hits at the net. The Varsity team was also lucky to have seventh grader Victoria Svetlova '23 join for her first game with TASIS Tigers as a libero in the back row, and she played a pivotal role helping the team receive ICS's hits.
The girls showed the most hard work and dedication in the games against ISZL, a great team again this year—and playing on their own home court. Set scores were 25-17, 25-20, and 25-23, with a very close and exciting third set. Led by Ally Pohl '19 and Jenni Kraemer '20 in kills and blocks at the net, and Virginia Italia '19 and Luiza Tiago de Faria '19 with assists and right-side hits of their own, the Tigers played very well and locked up the championship.
