This past Wednesday Cooper City High School’s Girls Volleyball team took on McArthur. It was senior night and the last home game for the seniors on the team.
The first game started with the score neck and neck at 6-5. Rebecca Baker scored multiple service point and CCHS began to pull ahead 9-5. The Cowboys never looked back from that point, winning the game 25-12.
The Cowboys came out even stronger than before in the second game and quickly took a 7-2 lead. The Cowboys dominated the game from start to finish, winning with a final score of 25-11.
The last game started close with a score of 6-4 but the Cowboys soon took off. They began to pour on points, going on a 7-1 run. They finished as strong as they started, winning with a final score of 25-13.
This was a great win for the Cowboys and was important to team’s seniors because it showed their drive and dedication paying off.
“We came together and played like a team,” Senior Alexandra Kerbel said.
The victory was bittersweet. With the graduating seniors leaving the team are losing players that are leaders both on and off the court.
“It’s hard to lose seniors,” Coach O’Linn said. “However I feel that underclassmen will all step up and take over those roles.”
The girl’s volleyball team’s next game is Thursday, October 20th, against Miramar High School.
