The end of Fall sports at Kennedy Catholic means the end to a great season by the freshmen, junior varsity, and varsity volleyball teams. The junior varsity and varsity teams both had extremely successful seasons, winning nearly all of their games. The JV team had a record of 13-1, and the varsity team finished with an undefeated record of 15-0. Home games were made more entertaining this year as the wins racked up and as fans filled the bleachers to support the girls. The combination of athletic abilities and teamwork amongst the girls on the court proved to be a recipe for success.

Unfortunately, not all great seasons end as well as their teams had hoped. Although the varsity team went undefeated during the regulated season, they lost in the first round of playoffs in a heartbreaking and fierce game against Preston. The JV team found more success in playoffs, winning the Division Championships. They lost the City Championship game in a competitive game against Archbishop Malloy. Overall, both teams had amazing seasons and should be proud of their accomplishments.

The girls faced many challenges, but in the end, they accomplished winning seasons that they should be extremely proud of, knowing deep down that they played their absolute best! Kennedy Catholic has surely proven to be a force to be reckoned with in the Catholic League when it comes to volleyball, and the program will hopefully continue to grow as time passes. As a senior on the varsity team, I feel fortunate that I was able to experience such a successful season.

Good luck to the teams next year, and here’s hoping for bigger and better things to come!
