Mission Hills Boys Volleyball team play against Pacific Ridge. Securing the win 3-0. “My volleyball experience has been wonderful, the memories made with the guys this season will always hold a place in my heart!” said senior, Matthew Jacobs.

Teamwork in sports is crucial for success. However, it’s important to know how to perfect teamwork to ensure a victory.
Lacrosse coach and teacher Mr. Ruiz shared how he gets his team to work together.
“We coach our team not to be selfish on the field because the only way they will be successful is by working together and helping each other reach their goal—which is to win,” said Ruiz.
Lucy Garrity, a senior and lacrosse captain at MHHS, shared her technique on how she helps her teammates improve their overall skills.
“When I’m trying to help my teammates, I tend to focus less on correcting their actual skill and more on the attitude they give towards themselves,” said Garrity.
A big part of skills in sports is confidence. Having bad sportsmanship brings your team down and lowers your capability and self-esteem. Another huge part of sports is knowing your teammates’ capabilities and what they need to work on. Freshman Izzy Post shares how she helps her teammates succeed during tennis season.
“I try to know my teammate’s strengths and weaknesses to try and help them improve,” said Post. Bonding with teammates also has an important role in teamwork.
“Our coaches would help us bond by having us do activities like secret Santa to have our teammates bond with each other,” said Post.
Teamwork plays a huge role in a team’s success, so it’s important to know how to help and make sure you and your teammates succeed. “I try not to make others feel bad with my criticism,” said Post.

This is her second year being a photographer for sports and many more events here at school. She had started taking photos of sports last year, and She has been working for OneTV/GSPN for 2 years now. Calee thinks that silvertip is a good way to provide the school with information, dates, and stories on different occasions/events through a newspaper. She really wants to improve of my photography skills whilst capturing moments of the field/court and or in the crowd also. She hopes to finish this class with more knowledge in writing newspapers and capturing photos with lots of emotions in them. Calee also joined journalism because she thinks this class is something that she can learn about. Her dream is to get a degree in either photojournalism or just photography.
