The eighth grade volleyball season ended on a high note. We won our last two conference matches, which propelled us into the HJPC conference tournament. These girls worked very hard to improve their skills over the last few months. Their love for the game continued to build throughout the season, which helped in the motivation to win our last two matches. We faced the number one seed AOS, in the first round and put up a tough fight losing 25-18 in both games. Their determination, competitiveness and will to succeed was evident. More importantly, their leadership and bond between teammates developed into a special season.
