J.P. Taravella High School volleyball has been one of the most consistent programs the past few seasons.
In the last two years, they have combined to win 22 games and added eight more to that this year despite a shortened regular season resulting from COVID-19.
Head Coach Jonathan Delva is happy with the way the Trojans performed this season but is most pleased that they could play and be successful while staying healthy.
“This season was filled with a group of 12 girls that loved and appreciated each other,” Delva said. “Each game, the girls did their best to continue learning and building on the positives,” she said.
JPT didn’t have their first game of the season until November 11, when they won 3-0 over McArthur High School. Their next victory came against Boyd H. Anderson High School, and then the Trojans had their first five-set match in 2020.
They were able to defeat Northeast High School in five sets, then later beat Coral Glades in a match that went the distance. They also had a quality win against Dillard as JPT entered the postseason as the seventh seed in the Silver 7A bracket.
Despite coming in with a better seed in, they were beaten by Miami Beach in four sets to have their season officially come to an end.
While they would have liked to make a longer run in the postseason, their future is extremely bright.
