Junior libero, Corinne Scott, dives for the ball against Tallwood Oct. 4, 2022 at Ocean Lakes Highschool.

Volleyball consists of a pass, set and swing to earn a point, however, there is no set nor swing if there is not a good pass. The most important and the hardest aspect of volleyball is passing and passing is the top priority for junior libero, Corinne Scott. 

Corinne has been on the volleyball team since freshman year and she competes in beach and travel volleyball on the side. She is reaching year seven at her travel club team, Beach Elite, and has gradually learned the minds of her opponents.

According to Corinne, a libero’s job is solely defense and to let nothing hit the floor. Sometimes this could be near impossible if one cannot anticipate where the ball will go. 

“To anticipate the ball; you have to consider the set as well as the hitter’s approach and the angle they’re hitting the ball. I’m also very determined to get every ball even if it seems like I can’t and I think that’s a huge thing that makes me a successful libero. I feel like I contribute a very positive mindset and good attitude to the team,” said Corinne. 

Corinne has played a total of 15 games for the Dolphins this season. She has been recognized on 757Teamz several times for her significant amount of digs in a game. 

“Not only her skill but Corinne’s hustle, relentless pursuit, positive energy and court presence is the reason Corinne succeeds as our libero,” said senior Adrienne Peji.
