Team Shows Heart, Spirit, & Grace
Grit, determination, and skills showed up at the annual volleyball tournament this year. The team arrived at a wonderful facility to play 4 games in the round-robin. With four big wins (25-18, 25-21, 25-23, 25-14), the girls were victorious placing first in the round-robin.
Cici was the top server, Crystal was dynamite on the court with great leadership and awesome skills, and Lydia and Lauren were big hitters with excellent returns. With Charlie as the setter, the ball was 1, 2, 3 over in most matches. Norah and Kiki made solid defensive hits and awesome serves. Elena and Ryley played together and helped the team to victory with great passing and serves.
The team went on to the semi-finals against Glenburnie – who won game one but TEAM rallied back hard with a win in game two. The final game was a close one – with TEAM losing by just 2 points. What a determined group of young female athletes. They played with heart and spirit and were gracious with their wins and losses. The girls would like to express their thanks to Ms. McDonald for her words of encouragement throughout the day. Coach Sweeney is so proud of every one of you and she looks forward to next year.
