The girls’ varsity volleyball season came to an end at home on Saturday, Oct. 27, after losing in the Sectionals round of the MSHSAA Class 4 tournament.

The girls played to their best ability when going up against Francis Howell but fell to the Vikings in straight sets.

The team ended their run this season with a 20-10-3 record resulting in the most wins in 10 years, and winning the District championship for the first time in 12 years.

In addition, senior Megan Reese also broke a school record set in 2001 for career assists when she went over 1,500 in a match against Clayton High School.

“I loved getting to create the relationships I have with the girls,” she said. “Some of my best friends are from the volleyball team.”

Sam Schuler is going to take the momentum of the team and try to carry that over to next season.

“Playing on varsity both my freshman and sophomore years with the seniors is going to be so different once they’re all gone next year, but we’ll continue to make those girls proud.”

Last season, the girls were only losing one senior on the team, compared to this year where they are losing five athletes: Megan Reese, Helen Nelson, Lacey Swanson, Trinity Wessler, and Natalie Wildberger.

That will be a significant difference for all the remaining players.

“Next year will be interesting to see what we’re capable of without the seniors,” Gabrielle Chan said. “We’ll all miss them more than words can explain.”
