JV Volleyball Gets the Gold!


Jacey Starks, Reporter

Congratulations to the JV Volleyball team for getting first place in the Diamond Tournament on Saturday, September 7th! After nine hours of play and a total of 5 games, the Diamond Wildcat JV team fought their way to first. They won against McDonald County and New Covenant Academy and lost to Stockton, which put them in the upper bracket of bracket play. They, then, battled against Sarcoxie and came out on top. After that, they had to beat Lamar in order to get first place. Lamar was unstoppable the whole day and were undefeated the whole day. With a whole lot of energy and excellent team work from the JV team, they were able to take down the Lamar in the first set with a score of 25-12, and the second set was surely a nail biter. After being down 17-23 to Lamar, the Wildcats refused to lose the second set and shut them down by earning those last 7 points in a row making the score 25-23. The Wildcats never gave up, no matter how intimidating it was to fight for first against an undefeated team. Congratulations JV Volleyball team for the great accomplishment that was well earned!
