Volleyball Seniors Crush Senior Night

VOLLEYBALL TEAM SUPPORTS ITS SENIORS: The rest of the team sits on the bleachers with the gifts to hand to the seniors. They cheer for the seniors as each one walks out with her family. Jason Miller said about the crowd, “It was pretty loud or sumthin’.”

Volleyball senior night was on the last home game of the season this Tuesday, October 4th. The six radiant seniors, Claire Downey, Sierra Vanhorenbeck, Emily Brose, Teagan Parker, Alyssa Yeoman, and Riley Holloway walked out to the front with their families, as their names were called, where they were celebrated for their four years in West Side volleyball. The gym was packed full of supporters and fans, all cheering loudly and clapping for them. Jason Miller, a spectator, said about the crowd, “It was pretty loud or sumthin’.” There were even photographers with hefty cameras snapping photos of them from left to right. The juniors, sophomores, and freshmen players were there, cheering for their senior players and handing them bouquets of chocolates, candy, and goodies.

FAMILY SUPPORT: The seniors stand with their families in the middle of the gym. Their siblings and parents came out to celebrate the end of their time in high school volleyball. The crowd claps and cheers for the girls. “They showed a lot of heart and played hard. It was a close game all the way around. It was a good atmosphere.” Reese Holloway, said.

After the recognition of the senior members, the game against Harrison started. The game went back and forth; each set, the points going up for both sides closely. Each team had two sets under their belts after the fourth set. On the fifth set, the rallies started getting longer, and the hits became stronger. Harrison and West Side scuffled for each point. The scores were getting close to 15, which is when the fifth set usually ends. However, Harrison prevailed and beat West Side 17 to 15. Though our team lost, the crowd roared and cheered, boosting the morale and the atmosphere. “They showed a lot of heart and played hard. It was a close game all the way around. It was a good atmosphere,” Reese Holloway said.

FINALE: The seniors, Claire Downey, Sierra Vanhorenbeck, Emily Brose, Teagan Parker, Alyssa Yeoman, and Riley Holloway, pose for a photo. They all seem to be happy to be celebrated. Riley Holloway said, “We played hard, and it was sad to lose on senior night, but we still have sections and one more game so we’re going to end strong.”

Though the game on senior night didn’t end on the best note, Riley Holloway had a positive attitude. She said, “We played hard, and it was sad to lose on senior night, but we still have sections and one more game so we’re going to end strong.”
