The girls’ volleyball team is prepared to play Kinkaid in their final match of the season at the Kinkaid School, Oct. 29, at 6:30 p.m.
“I am extremely excited for the game and think we have a great chance at beating them,” senior captain Caroline Owens said. “I would love to win against Kinkaid my senior year.”
The SJS record currently stands at 11-3, while Kinkaid’s record is 16-2.
“I know the team will fight hard for our last match of the season,” Owens said. “Win or lose, this game will be a great way to end the season.”
Over the season, the team, composed of sophomores, juniors and seniors, has grown closer and developed their skills.
“The team as a whole has grown incredibly close over the season, and I definitely see us staying friends after the season ends,” Owens said. “We all contribute differently to the team, and that makes us strong. We have a lot of new players on the team too, and they have all grown so much.”
Key players include sophomore Sydney Moye, who plays outside hitter, and junior setter Monica Dayao. Owens and fellow captain outside hitter Caroline Labanowski play pivotal roles as well.
“We’ve bonded a lot and get along really well, so we’ve learned to mesh on the court,” senior Nikhila Krishnan said. “We’re excited for this game and definitely determined, but also sad because it’ll be our last game together as a team.”
“I can’t wait for an awesome battle,” Owens said.
