With the end of the Volleyball season, the girls’ varsity team concluded the season with an overall 18-7 record and a league 9-1 record.

They are not the league champions of the 2018-19 volleyball season as they have been the previous two seasons. This year, they placed second within the league while Brighton took first.

“I was really impressed with the ladies this volleyball season, I’m kinda upset they didn’t win their league, but I’m proud of them…,” said sophomore JiAvyon Warren.

The ladies started the season with the title, “The Returning EMAC champions”. Their first game of this season against Denver South kickstarted their season off with a 3-0 win. The last game of the season was against Eaglecrest (who they played twice before) and ended in a 3-0 loss.

According to junior Sierra Hunt, “I am really disappointed because I know we could have played better and come out with a win.”

The ladies did make it to regionals. They placed 8th in the region, followed by ThunderRidge and Eaglecrest. They won the first set against ThunderRidge, but still fell short in the next 3 sets with a final score of  3-1.

Many said that the ladies had shown significant growth throughout the season as a team.

“I feel like the ladies did great this season with winning the majority of their games,” stated junior, Diamond Sharp. “Even though I had high expectations of them in regionals…”

The season has ended and many ladies say that overall, they had a good season and are looking forward to the what the future has in store.
