Dumping Howell out of the playoffs

Girls volleyball downs district rival to move on to state quarterfinals

After an easy win in the first set of the sectionals game against Francis Howell on Nov.  2, the Lady Spartans pulled ahead and won the game to advance to quarterfinals for the first time in program history. Sophomore Lexi Arnel was ecstatic about the win.

“When we beat Howell everyone was so excited. We all knew we could do it we just had to work as a team and everyone do their job on and off the court…” Arnel said, ”As a team, we had made history by making it to quarterfinals and to have done it by beating Howell was the cherry on top.”

The volleyball season has come to an end, with a win in quarterfinals, and a fourth-place finish at state.
