Varsity Volleyball Lose First Game in State Playoffs but End Season 2nd in the District

The Varsity Volleyball team headed into this season with the goal of unseating one of the top three teams in the district. Now, they have finished their regular season second in the district. 

Even though the team lost their first game Nov 6  in in the state playoffs to Cy Falls H.S., they finished their regular season with the best record ever 22 to 5. The team beat Lamar and Westside twice, when before this season, they had only beaten the top three- Lamar, Westside, and Bellaire, once in 17 years.

The end to their best regular season came on October 23, when the team went up against Lamar at the Delmar Stadium. They ended the game 25-22, beating Lamar for the second time this season. 

Entering the stadium, everyone had a bead of doubt, however, that was quickly swept to the side with confidence for victory. With Li Bahler starting the game, everything went into motion. Thanks to the team’s game plan beforehand, they confidently played hard throughout the evening. 

“In the past, we haven’t beat Lamar, so this was a big year for us” coach Miyuki Scott said. 

On October 26, the  team went up against Westside, playing at the Delmar Stadium. They won the game 25-21. 

“We remained confident and we played our game” said Bahler.

The team believes it has been their rigorous practice and pure determination, that helped them pull through this season. 

“We’re here to keep our winning record” said X.
