Multiple Teams · Varsity Volleyball takes a showdown match with Rogers

This was a match that both Rogers and the Saints were looking forward to playing. Rogers wanted redemption from a nail biting loss in fives sets last year. For our Saints, it was to prove that we can play and win against the best of teams. Varsity came out firing and took the first two sets with relative ease, but Rogers is a good team and refused to go down without a fight, they rallied back to take the next two sets from us leading to a fifth and deciding set. The Saints pulled out to an early lead and never looked back hammering shot after shot to a 15-8 win to take the match. The evening had a shadow cast over it as one of our players is dealing with a family tragedy, and while no one would have blamed her if she had chose not to play, but with the support of her team she had an amazing game and personal performance. It is important to point out that the older girls on varsity are often looked up to by the younger players hoping to one day make varsity themselves and watching her play through such adversity, she demonstrated a high level of class and determination to be there for her teammates. May she and her family heal their hearts and find peace with the support of those around them. This win locked third place in our conference and gives the team a first round bye going into sections. The Saints will face Anoka in an away game on October 27th at 7pm, come out and cheer loudly for a team that deserves to be supported by everyone.
