 The boys volleyball team did not miss a beat.  They finished the season undefeated and only lost a few sets all season.

   Despite the great team success, everyone in the county has faced hardships, considering they had to fit a typical four to five month season into one month.

   “We have definitely had our moments when we have been a dominant force, but there are also times where we can improve,” senior Tyler Gray said.  

  The Wildcat volleyball team has had great postseason runs in recent years.  In each of the last three seasons, the team was able to hoist the state championship trophy, and this year was no different.  On April 23, the men’s team defeated Glen Allen to clinch the class 5 State championship yet again.

   “We are not going to let COVID-19 ruin our streak,” Gray said.

   Because of these efforts, seniors Wade Every and Tyler Gray and junior Ian Wagenhauser earned First Team All-Region honors.  

   The girls volleyball team has also shown an impressive stretch of games.  This year’s team was still relatively young, but they produced and played at a high level.

   “Although we are younger, we have a really strong starting lineup and lots of talent all around,” senior Olivia Yarema said.

   In previous years, the girls have had great success in the regular season, and for this year, the team was poised to make the postseason.

   The girls team went on to compete in the regional championship but ultimately fell short in the first round of action.
