Mission Vista is playing with more confidence and consistency. We are coming out of the weekend with almost taking the Championship in the Bronze against Steele Canyon, losing 1-2 (20-25, 26-24, 13-15). Mission Vista has lost three of their returning players at the start of this season (which does not include the four seniors that graduated during the 2017-2018 season), and leaving the team with only two seniors (one trying to recover from back problems). We are learning on how to become a more consistent team without the up and downs of a roller coaster. Today’s match definitely showed proof of that when we took D1 Carlsbad High School to 5 sets. Senior, Kiersten Bellotti, again was my versatile player when I used her as my outside hitter, but then switched it up by putting her middle. I can always count on her to get blocks and take control of the teams energy and direction. Her passion and drive is unstoppable. We play next Thursday in San Marcos.
