Successful Weekend for Freshman Volleyball


This weekend, the Freshman volleyball team went 3-2 in Buhler. Members of the team are Adelyn Barrow, Elley Paulsen, Jasmyn Evans, Karsen Burris, Peyton Bonham, Denisa Nemcova, Leah Cahoone, Kaylee Western, Irena Bastos and Kynslie Minns, who could not play due to sickness.

The freshman team went undefeated in pool play with wins against Newton, Andale and Hesston. Coach Jamie Siess said “We started the tournament very strong during the 1st game against Newton.” In the second game, they played Andale for the third time this season. They have lost the past 2 times and finally came out with a win. Siess said “We were able to beat them playing with high energy and intensity the whole match.”  Karsen Burris, a member of the freshman team said “We have to beat Andale again next Thursday”.

In bracket play, they went 0-2, losing in 3 sets to Buhler and losing in 2 sets to Andale who they beat earlier that day. “Unfortunately we played tired and couldn’t get back on top”, said Siess. Elley Paulsen, a member of the team stated “I think that we came out very strong and had a lot of energy starting the day.  Also beating Andale was super fun. Going into bracket play, we didn’t have as much energy and we kind of fell apart.”

The freshman play again this Thursday in Andale against Mulvane, Winfield and Andale.
