The Freshman/sophomore volleyball players were ready for anything that came their way. They proved this in a triangular against Garden Plain and Wichita Trinity Oct. 16.

The tri was at home and one of the last games of the season for the girls. With a winning record going into these games, the girls had no doubt they would try their hardest. They went into three games with Garden Plain, losing the first game, winning the second and then losing the last game. They did pull out the win against Trinity in two games.

“Practice helped us get things done and really learn a lot to be better in games,” freshman Amanda Smith said.

The new freshman and sophomore coach, English teacher Kristy Martin, said she enjoyed coaching the girls. Coach Martin said that high school practices are more intense and competitive compared to middle school.

“Incoming freshman learned a lot in the season,” Coach Martin said. “The sophomore girls did a good job showing the freshman what’s to be expected of them.”

The girls ended the season with a record of 19-9.

“Sophomore year was better than freshman year because I was actually experienced,” sophomore Emma Barkley said. “Being a leader was fun, and Mrs. Martin helped us a lot.”

Oct. 16, the freshman/sophomore volleyball team had its last home game. The team huddled up to regroup for the next game.
