After making it to Round 2 of districts, the girls’ varsity volleyball team share its final thoughts on the season.

“I think we did really good considering the circumstances, with all the injuries and Shane leaving in the middle of the season and an inexperienced coaching staff,” senior Emily Canavan said.

The team bonded and played well together throughout the season. The challenges associated with Coach Shane Cassel suddenly leaving a few hours before an away game at midseason only brought the team closer together.

“We all went through this issue together so we had each other to lean on,” junior Sarah Lagenbach said. “It also helped that we still had a great coach this season, and seniors that really cared about us and wanted to help.”

This team had a competitive season with a win loss record of 13-7. 

” I think that volleyball is 66 percent of a mental game, and I truly believe our team gave it all. Talent and skill was there throughout the season despite the sudden changes,” junior Sally Kempfer said. “All in all, it was a pretty successful season and I’m happy with how we did as a team on and off the court.”

Although the season was fulfilling, many on the team are left feeling sad about the season coming to an end, especially the Seniors who have played their last high-school volleyball game.

 “I’m sad that it’s over mainly because I won’t be able to be with the people I called my family for six years,”  senior Hannah Alba said. “But I’m proud of how hard we played in the end.”
