Despite starting off the season 0-2, the Bakersfield College volleyball team remains optimistic about their chances this upcoming season.

BC opened up the season on Aug. 31 with two home games against San Diego Mesa and Grossmont College.

The Renegades struggled on offense and defense, never really finding a groove as a team.

“The ultimate goal is to win state, and I believe we are more than capable of making that happen,” the team’s defensive specialist Brooke Charles said. “As far as the 0-2 start, it means nothing other than the fact that we are 0-2. The future is really bright for us. We are going to do great things this season.”

The Renegades lost their first game on Saturday to San Diego Mesa College in four sets and went on to lose the second game to Grossmont College by a score of 3-1 as well.

Charles went on to explain that the team needs to get on the same page and adopt a common mind set and everything will be just fine.

The renegades are trying to do just that by practicing harder in hopes to turn this season around.

“I would have to say I am confident in our chances for the rest of the season,” said Kenadie Lee-McNeill, a third-year red shirt who is the team’s setter. “We had a rocky start, but after talking as a team we realized what we need to work on, and have been pushing each other each day at practice to create a more competitive atmosphere.”
