The tension was thick in the air as spectators watched The Patriots dominate and own the court. The team performed like a well-oiled machine, as each player’s position was maneuvered harmoniously.  The strategic performance of the assists gave the appearance that the team was of one mind. The players anticipated each-other’s next move and carried out their mission.

“The execution was flawless,” said Nick Santeramo, brother of Chessie Santeramo #2, who plays libero.

The deadly spikes that July Otero #14, outsider and Jasmyn Perry #3, outsider, delivered contributed to the winning points.  The Patriots quickly devoured their opponents with a 25-10 score in the first set.

“Determination of the team led to a communal victory that displayed the dominance of the CF woman’s volleyball team,” said Santeramo.

During the second set, the competition was fierce as each team battled to destroy the opposing side.  The energy could be felt on and off of the court as some fans would bang their feet against the floor in the stands to demonstrate their support.  The Patriots defeated them in round two with a score of 25 to 10.

The level of anxiety was high as the crowd intensely watched the last set of the game. It appeared that Lake Sumter might catch up to the Patriot’s points and with each second that went by, the pressure increased.

There was non-stop action as excitement filled the gym.  The Patriots surpassed Lake Sumter with a 25 to 12 win.

Santeramo said,“The Lady Patriots rallied around the excellent coaching of their experienced staff.”

When asked about the game, Otero said, “It was a good game for CF.”   She is motivated to always be better.

Yara Diaz #5, who played libero, said “It was a slow game.  We used it as practice to be better at other games. I learned to be better at passes and serves.” Her expectations are to win the nationals.

The players seem to share a bond as they huddle during breaks and even after the game.  Some of them have been playing volleyball since they were children.

Diaz, who has been playing since she was four years old, said “It’s my passion.” Her mother got her and her sister started playing.

“It’s my life from eleven years ago,” said Otero.

Perry’s mom was her first coach.  She started her playing when she was a child.  Perry said she got serious in high school.

Both of Perry’s parents played volleyball and stopped when she was born.

Perry’s family is her motivation for playing.

“I want to show my family that I can be somebody successful one day and take care of them,” said Perry.
