Freshman volleyball successful

Their success exceeding their losses, as of Oct. 4 the freshman volleyball team holds a record of 15 wins and 11 losses, according to the school’s website. The junior varsity team holds a record of 14 wins and 3 losses, and the varsity team with 20 wins and 11 losses. 

“Our record is better than our losses, so that’s good,” freshman Megan Beerbower, a long time volleyball player said.

Though the team continues to maintain a winning season, they have also had their trials. The freshman team lost in their game against Park Tudor on Oct. 1. 

“I don’t think that was our best game ever,” freshman Krista Roze said.  “I think we could all improve on just talking to each other on the court. Although lots of hard work is put into playing the sport, it can be very rewarding and help create friendships.  I really just like getting to know all the other girls in the program.”

Getting to know others as well as becoming friends has played an important role in the team’s success. 

“I call them my sisters,” Beerbower said.

In the freshman team’s last game against Lafayette, the Tigers played what Beerbower said was one of their best games of the season because of the communication the players were able to have between each other. 

“Everybody s getting better and we re all improving every practice,” freshman Carly Thomas said.

The freshman team is still continuing to develop and get better with time, leaving us with much to look forward to in future seasons.
