The Varsity girls then ended the night with a score of 16-25, 14-25. Afterwards, the athletes were asked a few questions about their game.
The first question asked was how the athletes felt they played as a team.
Junior Hannah Rethemeyer said, “We played well as a team against Borgia. We may not have won, but I am happy with how we played as a team on Tuesday night.”
Sophomore Emma Rohlfing replied, “I feel like we didn't play as well as we usually do. We weren't talking or moving our feet as well.”
Freshman Isabelle Hale simply said, “Not very great.”
Senior McKenzie Pecaut answered, “I feel we played really well overall. Our defense was really strong.”
The next question asked was if there are any goals the athletes have for themselves this season.
Senior McKenzie Overschmidt replied, “My goal for this season is to be the best I can ever be in volleyball and give 120% every single game and never regret any game for not playing hard.”
Hannah Rethemeyer said, “One of my goals for this year is to get better at hitting, and to get faster at blocking in games.”
Emma Rohlfing answered, “To rebuild my strength in my knee and hopefully come back stronger next year.”
The last question asked was what the athletes are most excited for this upcoming season.
Isabelle Hale said, “Just being able to play volleyball with my team.”
McKenzie Overschmidt expressed, “I am most excited about spending my last year in volleyball playing with my friends and just being out on the floor playing the game that I love.”
Ellie Westermeyer replied, “Getting close with my team and winning more games.”

Keep up the good work, Shamrocks, and good luck with the rest of your season!
