Middle School Volleyball Teams Close Out Season with a Sweep

The victory capped off the 8th-Grade team's undefeated season.

The Middle School Volleyball teams rounded out their season with a SWEEP of Kinkaid on October 28!

The 6th-Grade White team went 2-1 and was led by great serving from Kayin Coward, Victoria Morales, Noah Grace Backstrom, and Jocelyn Skopal. Lyla Eve Bauer, Jaycee Skopal, and Sofia Mohtashami also played solid defense in the back row. 

The 7th-Grade team crushed Kinkaid in two matches, 25-2 and 25-16. Ava Rivera served several aces and earned her team 19 consecutive points in the first game. Reese Sicinski and Megan Doyle were strong in the front row, while Nina Strathman and Jordan Haselhorst played excellent defense. The 7th-grade team finished the season with six wins and only one loss.

The 8th-grade team conquered the Falcons and finished the season UNDEFEATED in conference play! The girls played amazing in game one and then had to fight their way back to win game two. Powerful serves came from Maryn Vasquez, Kate Abbott, Angelina Kraft, Ava Powell, Elyse An, and Evelyn Muskat. Carina Savarino set up her teammates beautifully in the front row so that strong hitters like Kenzie Leggett, Natalia Zaldivar, and Mia Strathman could put Kinkaid on the defense. The smart gameplay and positive encouragement from Sophia McClung, Cami Olivera, and Tess Dabney helped the team end with a victory. This group of young ladies has only lost two volleyball games in the last two years of play here at Duchesne. Great work, ladies!
