Girls varsity volleyball season ends in district finals

November 28, 2018

After a season of hits, aces and sets, the girls varsity volleyball team ends their season after making it to the district finals. Here they conclude on their season.

“We had a very good season,” varsity volleyball coach Jerry Eisinger said. “Our record was 33-15-1. We took second place in the Flint Metro League and we won the Mt. Morris tournament.”

Their season was cut short however as they lost to Grand Blanc in four sets at the district finals.

“Unfortunately we did not achieve many of the goals the team had set for itself,” Eisinger said. “A very good Flushing team prevented us from winning the league championship and a very good Grand Blanc team prevented us from winning a district title. But all you can control is your own team and I think the team was very strong and we ran into some stiff competition.”

Although they didn’t reach many of their goals, the team says they were still strong in some areas.

“We had a lot of goals but we didn’t necessarily reach all of them,” junior Sydney Acho said. “We wanted to win three tournaments but only won one and wanted to go further than districts but we didn’t. But we did have one goal of getting better every practice and I think that we achieved that goal because we all got better by the end of the season.”
