The thirteenth-seeded Varsity Girls Volleyball Team began their postseason run on Tuesday, Oct.23, facing off with the fourth-seeded Bell Eagles in a highly competitive match, falling short 3-1, ending their postseason play.

At the start, Catalina Rodriguez went off as she had four kills on four attempts. The first set was a back and forth affair as both teams constantly exchanged the leads. Several errors on passing and serving allowed the Eagles to gain a slim lead in the latter moments of the first set, but Lauren Woolsey’s hustle lifted the Wolves to a one set advantage.

Woolsey continued her brilliant play, as her precise setting ignited the offense for the remainder of the game. The Wolves were trailing for most of the second set as unforced errors made the difference throughout. Despite a late offensive push by Rodriguez and Kiara Gebert, the Wolves lost the second set with a score of 25-23.

The third set was a huge momentum shift as the Eagles surged with confidence, scoring eight consecutive points serving as they won the third and overcame a late push by the Wolves.

In the final set, the rallies made the crowd explode with energy as both teams made ridiculous one-handed saves to keep the plays alive. Rodriguez and Gebert led the offensive push again supported by Aileen Flores, who made come clutch swings down the stretch.

Despite the late heroics from the Wolves, few lucky plays from the Eagles would ultimately seal their berth to the second round of the CIFLACS Division 1 playoffs.

“The girls played their hearts out and it was truly a honor to play with everyone of them,” Woolsey said.

Final Score: 27-25, 21-25, 16-25, 22-25
