Seventh-grade volleyball season has come to an end with their final loss in the semi-finals of the regionals to the Henry Cardinals. The Lady Pumas had defeated Wallace 25-17, 25-16 to advance.
When Madison Solomon was asked about the season, the coach responded:
“I think the season went really well overall, even though our record did not reflect our growth and improvement. All the girls improved immensely throughout the season as a group and as individuals. We had some pretty rough patches and in the end, we did not come out on top, but the season was a success with their growth and improvement.
“The season was extremely enjoyable with this great group of young ladies and was eye-opening for myself as well as the girls. I was sad to see the season end but look forward to working with the girls next year as they move up to the eighth-grade squad.”
