Seniors Highlighted In Win For Varsity Volleyball
On a night honoring the seniors it was apparent the importance of the eight seniors to the program before the match even started. Head coach Jason Nicholson explained the value of these seniors, who were in 8th grade when Nicholson took over the job in Lovejoy, saying "The facial expression of all our underclassmen, the tears in their eyes as the seniors were announced before the game, shows what they mean to the team and the program." To recognize these players the game was played almost entirely by the seniors showing the talent and depth the Lovejoy team possess. The varsity girls are 37-6 on the season and 7-0 in district and have won eleven straight as they march toward the playoffs and what is shaping up to be a deep playoff run once again for the program. A night that started with happy tears was nothing but smiles and celebrating as the Leopards cruised to a three set win over Denison 25-5, 25-14, 25-12.
