On Wednesday, Nov. 2, the girls varsity volleyball team played their last and final game of the season. Losing to Joliet Catholic Academy the girls left it all out on the court.

The game was very close as both sets ended in the same score of 25-23. The varsity girls were right there with Joliet Catholic Academy fighting to stay in the game, but unfortunately they weren’t able to pull through.

“When watching the game I was really moved by how well the girls worked together. Even though they didn’t win I was really proud of how motivated they were and all that they accomplished over the season” said spectator Olivia Antolak.

Despite the loss, the team had a great season. They experienced many wins as they went 13-0 in conference and won the South Suburban conference title. Later on they played Tinley Park for the regional title and they took them down in three sets. Lemont won the first set 25-20, lost the second set 19-25 and came back in the third set 25-17 to win the regional title.

As they kept going they won the semi sectional game against Providence Catholic in two sets. The first set was 25-18 and the second set was won 25-19.

Though the team wanted to keep moving forward in the playoffs, the team really bonded throughout the season leaving them with lasting friendships.

“I created lifelong friends,” said senior outside hitter, Eliana Scoville, “It was an experience I wouldn’t have traded for the world.”
