Folsom High’s varsity girls’ volleyball team can hold their heads high, as they finished their season with a first-round loss to Rocklin in the playoffs. The Lady Bulldogs, seeded 16th, was up against the top-seeded Rocklin Thunder, knew it would be tough to win, but they played their best before finally bowing out in four games, 25-14, 25-14, 20-25 and 25-12. “I was pleased and everyone was pleased with our performance,” Folsom coach Cinnamon DaSilva said. “It’s always hard when you come in as a big underdog, but we competed and played hard. We did everything we could and played a good match.” DaSilva continued, “The girls didn’t quit and to me that means more than winning. Everyone contributed and the girls were happy with how they played. We did the best that we could.” The future success of Folsom High’s program relies, in part, to players competing year round in volleyball. When the leagues are realigned next year, Oak Ridge and Ponderosa will join Folsom, Sheldon, Pleasant Grove and St. Francis in a highly competitive league. Sign-ups for Folsom’s Volleyball Club will be held Wednesday at the Folsom Sports Complex, beginning at 4 p.m. Players will be trying out for area teams ranging from 12-and-under up to 18. Players can register for tryouts online at Cost for tryouts are $30 if you pre-register and $40 if not. Recreation and training teams are also available and no tryouts are necessary for those teams. "If we want any chance of competing next year, we have to have players playing volleyball year round," DaSilva said. For more information visit
