LCVB just finished the 1st half of conference play with a 3-5 record. We’ve been working hard and are striving to better ourselves in the 2nd half; we get another opportunity at every team we’ve played and we’re determined to come out on top. The first half of season has been full of hard work, some sadness and, of course, fun. Below are some pictures to let everyone know what we’ve been up to.
The reason we all come together is to play the sport we love with all our heart and every weekend (and sometimes Wednesdays) that’s what we do!
Unfortunately this season our middle hitter Isabel Valentine tore her ACL and is out for the remainder of the season. While this hit the team hard, we must keep moving forward and getting better as a unit. Isabel is remaining fully involved and using her sharp eyes to help the team from the sidelines. LCVB knows that it takes everyone doing their part: Team work makes the dream work.
During the first weeks of school a large slip and slide was set up on the lawn in front of Pamplin, there was even a DJ. There was a problem with supplying water and soap but we weren’t going to let that stop us. We filled buckets up with water and carried soap in our hands from the locker room and went slip and sliding. It was a blast! Afterwards we rushed to change and were ready for practice perfectly on time.
LCVB did some community service this fall along with some of the football boys at the Buddy Walk one Sunday afternoon. We got our faces painted, played twister, painted a car, raced ladder and danced like crazy.
Over fall break the team went to the Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island, all in flannel. We found our perfect pumpkins, got hay all over ourselves and enjoyed the country market.
While in Washington the team went to The Milk Bottle for a meal. Senior Kelsie Dorpat’s family runs the restaurant and makes some mean milk shakes.
LCVB has been making a presence at LC Football games. We even drove early to PLU to cheer them on and painted GO L&C PIONEERS! on our tummies.
This weekend we kick off the second half of season against the Whits at home. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are having a pink game. We are also giving special recognition to senior Kelsie Dorpat’s mother who is a survivor of breast cancer. #rollpios
