Finishing off their season at Sectionals, Girls’ Volleyball advanced their way to the final game on Oct. 15 against Lake Central. The season record came out to be 16-17. Although they did not win the final game, the team managed to get in some good plays and win a set out of four.

“I think we played well and put up a fight even when we were down or struggling,” Olivia Webb, junior, said. “The highlight of the game was being able to play with our two seniors for the last time.”

The season was filled with individual achievements as the team reached personal goals and improved.

“I have gotten a lot faster at hitting and blocking,” Julianna Kisel, junior, said. “I really enjoyed the season and improved a lot. I was in the top ten in the state for juniors on blocking.”

Lauren Wallace, senior, explained that she also feels that she individually grew as a player this season, as she got her 1000th kill during her last conference game. She also expands on the growth of the team overall.

“We have played really hard, and I think we’ve exceeded the expectations of a lot of people,” Wallace said. “ At the beginning, it was a little rocky because we had never really played with each other. We got better throughout the season and played more as a team.”
