“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.
