The girls’ volleyball team compiled quite the resume this year:

  1. First District championship since 2006
  2. Most season wins in 10 years
  3. Making volleyball fun

That list was tweeted by the Pattonville volleyball account (@PHSPiratesVB) on Oct. 27 following their loss to Francis Howell in the state Sectionals tournament.

In order to get to that game, the Pirates (20-9-3) first had to get through two opponents in the District tournament.

Pattonville defeated McCluer North at Riverview Gardens on Oct. 25 in the early match to advance to the District championship game. After beating the Stars 2-0, the Pirates faced Hazelwood West in the title match-up and swept that contest 2-0.

It was the first time the girls’ volleyball team lifted the district championship plaque in 12 years.

The main gym was resurfaced on Oct. 19 and was scheduled to remain closed until Oct. 28, but opened early because Pattonville hosted the Sectional volleyball tournament.

On Oct. 27, Pattonville hosted Francis Howell in the first match of the day but the Vikings commanded both games and won 2-0. The loss ended the season for varsity girls’ volleyball team.

Senior Natalie Wildberger said the end of the season, and her high school career, was disappointing.

“As the game ended on Saturday, a sinking feeling settled in my stomach as I came to the realization that I was playing my last game of high school volleyball along with my family on the court.”
