Epic battle ends with a loss for Hawks
The season may have ended with a playoff loss for the Red Hawks girls’ senior volleyball team, but not without an epic battle during the first round of the Kawartha championship playoffs.
Down two sets in the best of five match against the Kenner Rams, the Hawks found their game, pushing the match to the fifth set with two straight wins. Although the team eventually lost the match with a 15-8 in the deciding set, losing 3-2, the team’s coaches Steve Smith and Michelle Backus were proud of the team.
“Their coaches are very proud of the accomplishments and improvements that each of the players demonstrated throughout this tumultuous and difficult season. We wish the graduating seniors all the best and look forward to our upcoming season in November as well as the eight or nine talented juniors moving up,” Smith said.
