The De Soto High School varsity volleyball team had its last home game on Oct. 17 against Spring Hill High School.

The Wildcats  swept the Broncos 25-17, 25-9,25-16.

“I think we played very well and were pretty consistent overall,” senior Riley Moore said. “We have been very focussed on communication and continuing to work hard all throughout the game, and I think we did that on Tuesday.”

Not only did this win show the team that their hard work has been paying off, but they were named the Frontier League Champions.

Along with these two achievements, the team has been able to demonstrate their skills in other matches during the season.

“I think our biggest accomplishment so far has been defeating Lansing in the championship to win Spikefest,” Moore said when recalling some of her favorite parts of the year.

Since the season is coming to an end, the game against Spring Hill was senior night and may have been the last home game some may ever play at DHS. Because of this, Moore has been able to reflect on how she has benefitted the team throughout the season.

“I have been able to take a leadership position through some of the smaller things we do, like leading warm ups and maintaining a positive attitude, just as the seniors before me have,” Moore said.

Despite all of their accomplishments, the volleyball team still has more games to play, the next one being Sub-State on Oct. 21 at Pittsburg High School.
