The girls’ varsity volleyball team’s season came to a close on Thursday, Oct. 26 with a loss to No. 6 Seneca Valley in the first round of playoffs.

They lost in three straight sets; the scores were 17-25, 22-25, and 15-25.

This was not the first time the two teams had met this season. The Black Hawks, who were ranked No. 11 in the postseason, beat the Raiders earlier this month 3-1 for their breast cancer awareness game, which raised $500. However, the Raiders seemed more put together and ready to battle this time around.

The Lady Hawks tried to rally back, but their efforts were not enough to overcome the consistency of Seneca Valley’s team. The Raiders had a spread of offensive weapons, which was led by senior Emily Devlin and freshman Sara White. Defensively, Seneca Valley was making scrappy plays and, simply put, picking up balls that the Lady Hawks were not getting on their side.

Congrats to the both JV and varsity for posting winning records this season! That is still an accomplishment to be proud of.

Ra Ra Hawks!
