Despite the current record, the lady bears volleyball team is intent on making it all the way to state.

The Lady Bears varsity volleyball team has played 24 games so far, and its current record is 6-18.

One loss was against Harrison. Due to an unfortunate transportation error, a bus didn’t show up to take the team to Hillgrove for several hours, resulting in the team having to forfeit.

Several of the games were area matches, which determine their seeding for the area tournament later on in the season.

The Lady Bears currently have a 4-2 record for area matches and are ranked fifth.


Results of the area tournament are what ultimately decide whether they make it to state.

There was a large turnout this year for team tryouts, with 14 girls making it on varsity.

In previous years, coaches selected fewer players for the squad. The school’s opening year there were only 11 players, and the second year there were 12.

However, Women’s Varsity Volleyball Head Coach Diane Bunting said 14 is a good number for this team.

Only six players on each team are allowed onto the court at a time, which leaves eight subs off the court.

“Fourteen girls isn’t too many. I think that it’s beneficial to have everyone in practice to help us get better,” said junior Kamryn LeMoyne, who plays varsity.   

LeMoyne said she is resolute in her belief that the team will make it to state.

“I think that if we work hard and play how we know how to we will make it to state,” said Lemoyne.

Bunting said that the girls will mostly be working on blocking and other defensive moves this season.

Junior varsity player Ariana Biermann, a sophomore, said she believes the lady bears will dominate the court this year.

This is Biermann’s first year playing volleyball, but she has a positive outlook on how the season will go.

“All the girls are trying really hard, and if we continue with this level of effort we can go all the way,” she said.
