Varsity volleyball makes history

The varsity volleyball team defeated Madison High School for the first time in history on Sep. 25. After falling to the Warhawks in close matches the past three years, varsity volleyball player and senior Grace Clarke says the victory comes from the team’s positive mentality heading into the game.

“[Two years ago] we could’ve beat them with skill but because it was Madison, we let [the pressure] get in our heads,” Clarke said. “This time around we didn’t let anything get in our heads.”

Varsity volleyball player and junior Devon Lussier says the win inspired the team to top Conference 13 for the fourth year in a row.

“This win against such a tough team like Madison definitely gave us the momentum to work harder and try for a fourth consecutive conference championship,” Lussier said.
