Road-to-ChampionshipThe fifth grade volleyball team 1 had an exciting weekend of tournament play. On Saturday, the girls took on St. Mary's Griffith. The team had to come from behind and win after St. Mary's won the first game of the set.

Claudia Nickic got us off to a big lead for both games 2 and 3 with her serving. Jacklyn Ivers, Hailey Cook, and Jessica Fazekas also had excellent serving on Saturday. Isabella Jardenil contributed with excellent passing during the match.

The girls had another tough opponent on Sunday in St. John Evangelist. We won the first game, lost the second and came back to win the third. Madison Rowley, Hailey, and Claudia lead the team in serving on Sunday. Madison and Jacklyn also had some great saves at the net for the team on Sunday. Allison Shears, Isabella, and Ava Hiller also contributed to the win with great passing.

It was truly a team effort on both days. We also had amazing crowd support over the weekend from parents and other relatives. The fans were cheering loudly with their cowbells and holding up posters to cheer on the team.

We are headed to the championship game this Saturday at 3:00pm at the Diggz in Hobart. Please come support our Panthers!
