Game Recap

We had a team total of 5 aces, 11 kills, 4 blocks, and 39 digs on the night. With this match behind us, we say goodbye to three seniors that gave a lot to our program over the past four years. Katie Woerdehoff, Jenna Fogelsonger, and Chapin Schultz have made an impact on Lakeshore Volleyball during their time here. We wish them the best as they all move onto college next year. With a record of 6-27, our team had a hard season this year but also one of great mental, emotional, and physical growth. It took concentrated decisions and mindsets to continue to show up to the gym every day to keep pushing each other to get better and rebound from the various losses. I am proud of how this group stuck together through the ups and downs of season and how they are individuals who strive to keep growing.
