“A win is the best two out of three matches, and we played our all out there,” said se­nior Aden Legesse.

“This sea­son was weird hav­ing a whole new head coach and new teams. How­ever, we did way bet­ter than last sea­son. I'm glad that un­der­class­man like me were able to make var­sity. I learned a lot from our new head coach. She re­ally strength­ened and pushed us when we were un­sure of what was go­ing to hap­pen next. My hope for next sea­son is that Briggs con­tin­ues to be our coach," said sopho­more Ashley Grant.

"I am sad that the se­niors had to play their last game without go­ing to state. They re­ally brought the spirit to our team. We will hap­pily fol­low in their foot­steps. I know that we will have a bet­ter record next sea­son. The tour­na­ment was a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and it was sad that it had to be our last game. Every­one has their ups and downs but at the end we all pulled through and strived for a great out­come. We all worked as a team and at the end; that’s all that re­ally mat­ters,” added Grant.

Last sea­son the girls main­tained a win-lose record of 632. This sea­son the team won eight games. Coach Briggs trained the girls all sum­mer fol­low­ing a rou­tine of de­fense, of­fense and weight train­ing to strengthen their up­per body for over­hand serves.
