Volleyball Season Opener Victory

volleyball-13118Congratulations to the JV and varsity volleyball teams for winning their season opener vs. EMHS. The JV team came from behind to win the 1st and went to work in the 2nd behind strong serving from Alia Miller. The varsity team won in 3 with great overall team play. Katie Moyer was strong at the net with several kills, and had an awesome kill of an overpass. Way to go ladies! The Caped Crusaders have definitely set the tone for the season. Dressed in their tropical attire, the 35 plus rowdy fans came out to support and entertain as always. They also accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge afterwards and were great sports! A big thanks to them to getting off to a great start. And Mrs. Shifflet – you rocked that line last night! Thanks so much for being a line judge.
