The teams played five sets of volleyball with the seniors taking the first two wins, the juniors taking the next two, and the seniors coming out with the win. The sets were 25-18, 25-12, 18-25, 20-25, and 15-5.

Grace Hall was a coach for the seniors and she was proud of all her players.

“They started out strong and there was a blimp in the middle, but they had a lot of energy at the end and pulled out the win. And I’m proud to be a Super Smash Senior,” Hall said. The senior players were equally proud of the game’s outcome.

Samuel Rodgers helped his team to their victory, leaving the audience at the edge of their seats.

“We clearly played with superior volleyball skills and destroyed the juniors,” Rodgers said. Although, the juniors are still hopeful to take a win next year.

Eliza Neal, a coach for the juniors, said she is excited to take the victory next year.

“We did just as well as we expected. We did amazing. Even though we lost this year, we are coming back next year. Watch out, future juniors!” Neal said.

Graham Lott, a junior player, said he believes that they all played to the best of their ability.

“We did really well and toughed it out until the end. I’m super proud of how hard we played. Who’s Joe?!,” Lott said.
