Prior to this season, the City College beach volleyball team existed only as a club. This year marks its first season as official Vaqueros.

“I’ve been associated with the team for the past five years,” head coach Samantha Callisto said. “It’s great that we’re finally official and I get to be with the program.”

The team is off to a rocky beginning with a 1-8 record, but players have shown steady improvement for their first year.

For some players this is their first year playing beach volleyball so the new team gives them the opportunity to spread their wings outside of indoor volleyball.
