The girl’s varsity volleyball team was off to a rocky start at the beginning of the season with a record of 12-15 but now are confident that they can finish the season strong. The girl’s regularly scheduled volleyball season is quickly coming to an end. The girls are ready to take on their competition in the tournament. The lady Indians finished 8-3 in the NIC Conference.

The girls have had difficult tournaments against nationally ranked teams but have gone toe to toe with them. Junior Yury Pimentel said she is “super excited for the post-season because she feels like all their hard work is paying off and the team is seeing results.” She continued by saying, “the seniors are a great group of leaders and I look up to them so much.”

The coaching staff is led by Alisha Fransted and Mary Kay O’Connell. They are assisted by Mackenzie Chrapliwy. The girl’s varsity team has seven seniors on the team that include Maddie Hazelbaker, Sam Suth, Morgan Sandor, Abby Resse, Gabby Trinter, Kristi Tingwald, and Paige Harding. Senior Sam Suth talked about her injury in an interview:”My injury has made me get back into things faster and finish the season strong as it is my last year.”

The lady Indians finished the season with a 3-0 victory over Culver at home, Wednesday, October 5th. They drew Clay in the first round of sectionals on Thursday October 13th at New Prairie.
