On Friday, Oct. 23, the girls’ freshman volleyball team gained a well-deserved win against the Tam Hawks, ending with scores of 25-5 and 25-15.

Captain Olivia Cooke sets up teammate Caroline Marlowe for a strong hit from the center court.

After a tough loss against rival Marin Catholic, the girls were ready to bounce back.

“I felt really confident going into this game,” captain freshman Olivia Cooke said. “Our team works together as a family and as long as we stick together we can achieve all our goals.”

Starting as the first server, freshman Anna Campagno led the team with a 13 point streak from her powerful serves.

With little struggle, the girls won the first set and kept their heads high as they continued on to the second.

Freshman Mckenna McGonigle’s spikes from the left side and Cooke’s strong defensive blocks from the middle helped bring the team to an outstanding finish of winning both sets.

“I’m bittersweet about this season coming to an end,” McGonigle said. “But overall, I’m proud we have had such a great time throughout it.”

The girls hope to end their season with a win against Branson on Tuesday, Oct. 27.
