Over a two-week period, the volleyball team, in total, has played 17 games. Six games were played for the regular season, while 11 were played over weekend tournaments.
On September 18, the team traveled to Maize to play the Maize South Mavericks and the Valley Center Hornets. The team lost to both opponents.
“Maize South is a hard team to compete with, but I feel like we could have competed with them better. A lot of the points they earned were from our own mistakes and if we fixed that I feel like we could have competed better,” senior hitter Grace Blackman said.
The following weekend, the varsity squad participated in the Newton Invitational tournament. Playing Heights, Buhler, Newton, Salina South, Nickerson, and McPherson, they walked out with a 4-2 record for the day.
“My favorite part of this tournament was when we beat Newton. We battled against the home team and gave them their first loss of the season which helped set the tone for the rest of the day,” sophomore hitter Ally Harris said.
Andover High School hosted their senior night and pink-out for breast cancer games on September 25. The volleyball team beat Eisenhower and proceeded to play their rival, the Andover Trojans, but lost.
“There was high energy during the Andover game which helped us to play stronger. Although we lost, we competed well with them and went home eager to play them again,” junior hitter Ryen Fowler said.
Before going to the homecoming dance, the team first played in the Andover High School volleyball tournament on September 29th. Varsity played Winfield, Rose Hill, Andover, Southeast, and Derby and left with three wins over Winfield, Southeast, and Derby.
“The day was very stressful because of homecoming and the two-and-a-half-hour wait, but the energy in the Derby game made up for it,” Fowler said.
October 2 the team traveled to Goddard to face the Ark City Bulldogs and the Goddard Lions. They fell to Ark City in three sets and Goddard in two sets.
“Tuesday night was disappointing for our team we’ve worked really hard to get where we are and not everything was clicking that night, but I’m really excited for our next home game on Tuesday because we get another shot at both Goddard and Andover,” junior setter Holli Dreiling said.
On October 9, the volleyball team will host the last home game of the season and face Andover High School and Goddard High School as they celebrate senior night.
