The boys’ volleyball team has improved throughout the season thus far. The team is broken into the A team and the B team. Last week, the A team played hard against Olentangy Orange, but lost in a close one. Also against Orange, the B team played another close one, but fell to the Pioneers late. Luke Berridge and Dylan Erikson both served well throughout the match. Good luck this week.
The Cats came up short against Lancaster General Sherman and Pickerington Lakeview last week, and the weather prevented them from having any additional games. Lexi Aleshire hit the team’s first home run of the season against Lancaster and our defense started out on fire in the first inning against Pickerington Lakeview with key plays by Bailey McClain and Raimer Contrera. We are entering the last week of the season with 2 home games this week – let’s finish strong ladies! Go Cats!!!
