Volleyball has came to an end with a final record of 8-27 losing to Emporia in a play in game for regionals. The girls were not exactly where they would have wanted to end.
“The game against Emporia was close. We came really close to winning We took them to three sets so we got excited,” junior Bella Tauai said.
The girls mainly focused on improving as a team. Record mattered less to the girls. They looked to compete every single game.
“Over the course of the season I told the girls we were going to have to be measuring our success on something other than our record,” head coach Stacey Hart said. “We have to focus on our metrics. Our ability to play with heart, and we judge ourselves on that.”
Adjustments through the season were made by the girls, even though their record didn’t show improvement, they improved as players.
“I would say Coach Hart helped us get better through the season. It was hard at times but I am really looking forward to next year which could potentially be a really good season for us,” sophomore Ellie Stearns said.
The team loses six seniors next year, which could be a tough adjustment for the Jags.
“Going into next year I think we will have a fresh look at things. There is a bunch of younger girls who are really good : Ellie (Stearns), Jenna (Lambertz), and a couple other girls who performed really well on JV,” junior Kate Paulsen said. “It will be fun to see how far we have come next year. I have faith in our team to improve a lot.”
Even though the girls season was not where they would want to be. They improved dramatically over the course of the season.
