Just as the school year starts up again, so do the fall sports. For the 2017-2017 school year, first-year freshman manager Vivienne Tran will have to to look out for the books as well as the balls.

Frontline: How do you feel about being part of the team as a non player?

Vivienne Tran: I don’t feel as excluded as people would think I do, and all of the players are really friendly.

FL: What do you think will be the biggest challenge you’ll face as manager?

VT: I think that the biggest challenge I’ll face will be the score keeping at the games. It’s a big responsibility and I would upset a lot of people if I mess up.

FL: Is there any bond between you and any of the players?

VT: A few of my friends are on the team, and I felt really sad when I didn’t make the team, but I’m glad I was able to become the manager.

FL: Does Coach Olbright have a plan for the team this year as a new coach?

VT: I think Coach Olbright’s goal for the team this year is to have them improve the most that they can to be as successful as possible.

FL: Because you aren’t part of the playing team, would you/are you considering trying out in your following high school years?

VT: I don’t think I will try out again because I don’t feel like it’s the right sport for me to be in.

FL: What is the biggest misconception about being the manager?

VT: I think the biggest misconception about being a manager is that you don’t have enough skills to play the sport or that you aren’t responsible enough to join a team. But like I said, I don’t feel excluded or anything.

FL: Are you planning on becoming the manager for both fall and spring volleyball? 

VT: I don’t think I will become the manager for the spring because I think I will try out for a spring sport.

FL: Is this job overwhelming for your first high school year and first sport?

VT: The job is not too overwhelming at the moment, but I think the job will get increasingly difficult and different as we go deeper into the season.

FL: What’s the best part about being a manager?

VT: I think the best part would be that I am getting a better understanding of the game itself and I can watch my friends play.

FL: How much dedication is there to be part of a team?

VT: I think there is 100% dedication for helping the team stay together and assisting the coach through whatever obstacles we run into throughout the season.

Catch the first varsity game tomorrow, Tuesday August 29, at 6 PM. Support vanguard volleyball.
