LSW Varsity Volleyball finished second in the HAC tournament on Thursday, Oct. 24. They lost 3-0 to the Bolts.

 

Pius X won the first set, 25-13. Southwest ultimately lost the second set as well 25-13. Pius X took the lead in the third set but the Hawks caught up towards the end with each team juggling the score back and forth. In the end Southwest lost 30-28.

 

Although the Hawks lost this tournament it allowed them to reflect on their playing and work to become better.

 

“I think what we’ve taken from this game is that if you never give up you can come back,” said sophomore Shaylee Myers. “In the third set we came back and we almost won. If you don’t stop you can keep playing.”

 

The Hawks started slow in the first set and picked up momentum in the second set. The third set was their prime time with a tight score near the end.

 

“I don’t think we necessarily came out with the attitude and effort we needed to at the beginning of the game,” said senior Lizzie Ehlers. “I do think we started to find that more positive attitude in the third set and thats what helped it become so close.”

 

Districts are coming up soon and the girls are ready to improve their teamwork and move past this loss. 

 

“I think we need to keep working on playing together as a team,” said Shaylee Myers. “We need to trust each other more on some defensive balls.”
