The varsity volleyball team had a game against the Merrillville Pirates on Sept. 8. They won all three sets. Known for being a good team, the girls’ relationship with one another is the backbone to all of their success.

“I think my favorite thing this year is that it doesn’t really matter if we win or lose, it’s more about the team itself. We really care about each other [including when a teammate is] sick or injured. We have all grown really close,” Linda Morton (12) said.

Even though there is be an age difference between the teammates, that doesn’t stop the friendships from growing.

“All of the girls are really fun, and all the seniors took me in,” Taylor Marten (10) said.

The girls form an unbreakable bond by being with each other all the time. They are either practicing, playing in a game or riding on a bus to an away game. Not only do the upperclassmen create a strong bond with underclassmen, but they are also role models for the underclassmen.

“All the seniors are such good leaders, and I want to be like that when I get to be their age,” Taylor Marten (10) said.
