Fall Sports Kick Off
By Angelica Aquino '22, Angelica Buncio '22, and Jasmine DeVera '22
This fall season offers a variety of sports at ICA: cross country, volley-
ball, and golf. These Spartan athletes have learned what it truly means to work hard and to be a part of a team. We asked several players questions about their goals for the season and more.
“I’ve played volleyball for eight years,” said senior varsity volleyball
player Kaelah Tarifa Mateo. “My goal for this season is to improve my
hitting, as well as setting. My favorite aspect of volleyball is spending
time with my team. I’m excited to get to know some of the new players
this season and to win!"
Sophomore JV volleyball player Adelaine Remo has been playing volleyball for six years now. She said, “I want to be able to help make this team stronger and teach the frosh something new before the season ends. My favorite aspect of volleyball is the feeling I get as a hitter.” Being able to successfully hit the ball over gives her a feeling of rush and excitement. She went on to say, “I’m really excited to develop my skills
and to be able to show them off on court!”
“My goal for this season is to keep a steady pace throughout each
meet,” said Tamara Harris, a sophomore who has been doing cross
country for the past two years. “My favorite aspect of cross country is
when I get to help my teammates and cheer them on. I’m excited to run
at the meets and create new and fun memories with the team!”
“I have been playing golf for three years now, since freshman year,”
said junior Mariah Esquivel, who is excited to improve her skills and
teach herself how to be more patient, which is a key component of golf.
“My goal for this season is to be consistent with my strokes.” She wants
to be able to finish a hole within four strokes. She continued with, “My
favorite aspect of golf is when I first hit the ball off the tee and I make it
perfectly close to the green.”
This year’s fall sports teams are filled with promising athletes. May all
our Sisters learn, grow, and win together! Go Spartans!
