In preparation for the incoming volleyball season, Jacob Zhang (‘26) practices serving the ball during the WSC Clinics. Despite the ascent to Les Perry Gym, prospective students interested in playing Volleyball this Spring will have to make the climb. “Volleyball clinic was a great way to get to know the players on the teams and coaches and to work on my skill,” Samantha Crawford (‘26) said. Whether it is the VWS or WSC volleyball clinic, the experience serves as an important building block for all players.

Webb’s best-kept secret is none other than this year’s WSC volleyball clinic.  

While the volleyball clinic is advertised to be an introduction to the sport, a way to discover new talents, and an opportunity for seasoned players to sharpen their skills, does not adequately represent the unexpected jubilation this year’s clinic will experience. 

“It’s the most fun clinic in the world, I’m so excited to introduce the sport to new people and get back to playing the game that I love!” said volleyball coach, Ms. MacPhee. 

The clinic’s prioritization of creating a fun yet productive workspace is what fuels this afternoon activity’s determination to be the best. It’s open to players of any skill, even to those who just want to test out volleyball for the day. 

WSC volleyball had a promising season last year and plans to continue their domination of the Academy League this year. Building upon a history composed of enthusiastic and hard-working players, this forecast sets an exciting tone for this year’s clinic. 

“I feel very excited for these upcoming clinics and volleyball season,” said Tony Gao (’26), returning WSC varsity player. “I believe that this year’s team has great potential for this upcoming season.” 

The clinic itself will focus on basics crucial for players at any experience to learn or master. Ranging from people who never took part in this sport to experienced veterans, these clinics are an amazing activity you should consider partaking in. So spread this secret: these volleyball clinics will be taking place every Sunday up until February 3rd!

Gianna Darden (‘26), exudes the charm and radiant smile of a bunny. Although friends may compare Gianna to a bunny, she embodies more traits of an owl. Not only are owls Gianna’s favorite animal, but they guide her star sign, Sagittarius. Sagittarius are most known for being ambitious and passionate. Gianna demonstrates these traits through her dedication to women's rights. In fact, she is driven to make a change in feminine products being affordable for everyone. According to Sagittarius Traits, Sagittarius are also known for “cherishing family ties.” Gianna's closeness with her family enabled her to adopt her passion for women's rights. One of Gianna's favorite activities is eating dinner with her family and discussing controversial topics, like choosing DC over Marvel. Gianna also enjoys being in nature. Like owls, Gianna relishes being surrounded by nature. According to Sagittarius Spirit Animals owls are known for being “clear-sighted and having a different view of the world.” This year, Gianna hopes to bring different perspectives to the Webb Canyon Chronicle to discuss important, controversial, and funny topics with the Webb Community.  Favorite Song: "Baby Doll" by Dominic Fike
Ben Madanski, Staff Writer
The ability to visualize a swing plays a crucial role in the game of golf. Practicing this skill as a varsity golf player at Webb, Ben Madanski (‘26) applies such clarity and confidence to life. Though mostly spent in his home in Claremont, Ben’s summer was nevertheless fulfilling as he took a course on AP Chemistry, a subject avoided by many, simply because it is fun to create chemical reactions. Ben applies his problem-solving skills to debate as well on the Webb team. Contrary to his calm demeanor, Ben argues passionately in heated debates to practice the skill of using logic to persuade others. When he is not busy solving chemical equations or winning debates, he enjoys shopping with a small group of friends as he prefers the intimacy of a small friend group. Joining the WCC as a staff writer this year, he hopes to bring attention to climate change protests. As a debater, Ben stands behind a logical persuasion of beliefs and not the hindrance to everyday life that Ben believes to happen in many such protests, such as blocking traffic to capture attention. No matter what, Ben does not succumb to the pressures of life and takes his swing exactly as he envisions.    Song: "From the Start" – Laufey
