Girls’ varsity volleyball ends season 19-7


The varsity girls’ volleyball team ended their season with a 19-7 record and won the girls’ volleyball district championship on Oct. 17. District play-offs began Oct. 9 with a match against Royal Palm Beach High School, with the Lady Warriors winning all three sets. 

“I think I was just nervous because it was a really important game to win,” sophomore defensive specialist Ally Bauer said. 

After the district championship, the team continued to a regional game against Vero Beach High School on Oct. 23.

“It was such a tight match all the way through,” Melanie Jones, an AICE English Language A Level teacher and a spectator of the game, said.

The Warriors lost the first two rounds of the game but in the third round, the girls made a comeback.

“It is obviously devastating to end our season because I definitely didn’t want to stop playing because it was my last high school volleyball match. It would have been nice to win our last match but we tried and that is what matters,” senior Tristen Ladika said.

The fourth round was back and forth between the two teams, but Jupiter ended up prevailing. In the fifth and final round, Jupiter had difficulty earning points.

“They lost their momentum I feel. We’d get a point, we’d lose the ball to the other team, and then we couldn’t seem to get a momentum and carry more than one point at a time,” Jones said.

Vero Beach won 15-10 in the fifth round. The Lady Warriors ended their successful season, winning only two out of the five rounds.
