Playing hard until the last match led varsity girls volleyball team to secure another win against Winter Springs on Thursday, Sept. 29, improving the record to 12-2 overall.

The game took place on senior night, but the emotional atmosphere had no effect on the way the team played. They shut out the Bears with a 3-0 score overall.

“It feels really good [to win on senior night], especially because all of the seniors get to play and represent our team,” libero Frankie Tibbitts-Bryce said.

The team won all three matches with a strong lead for each, 25-11 for the first set, 25-13 for the second set and right side hitter Morgan Romano sealing the win with the game winning point, making the score 25-9 in the third set.

“We really worked hard together as a team tonight,” middle blocker Erin McNamara said. “It was an emotional night and definitely one to remember.”

In the first set, the Huskies showed their team chemistry with Tibbits-Bryce blocking a spike from the Bears making the score 16-8. The same ethic applied in the second set as Romano hits to middle court making the score 7-5.

Libero Heather Kelly had eight digs, two kills and an ace, and Tibbitts-Bryce had seven digs and an ace, contributing to the win.

The team is striving to defend their district title with five games left in the regular season. There is a lot for the team to work for but they are in great shape to achieve their goal. The next game is at home on Monday, Oct. 3 against Lake Mary.
