Really upping their game from when they were seventh graders a year ago, the eighth-grade volleyball team, despite having a few players who moved up to C squad and to varsity too, only suffered a couple of losses this fall, including a heartbreaker to host Sibley East and then a home loss to Alden-Conger.
“They were a fun group,” said coach Cassidy Block.
They included, from L-R, front row: Sajen Grandaw, Kaitlyn Flowers, Amelia Chmiel, Taylor McCabe and Cheyenne Lotspeich. Back row: Coach Cassidy Block, Taylor Wolf, Kiera Schipper, Neenah Lassiter, Maile Meissner, Sophie Austad, and Anna Lamont.
