The Ripley Viking volleyball team has had a great showing in all of their games this season. The team’s record is 13-18-1 and they have been able to play against tough opponents this year. The team has played hard throughout the season only getting better with each game.
“We have been able to improve on our communication skills and that has helped us to do better in games during the season,” said senior Ryne Hill.
The volleyball team looks to continue to get better over their last few games and to win the majority of them. They have worked hard since they began practicing over the summer and are looking forward to having a great finish to their season. They haven’t given up during any of their games and they are hoping that helps them as they get towards the end of the season.
“This year is a little different from last year,” said Junior Lyndsay Anthony
“But in only losing two players we have been able to stay the same, because a lot of underclassmen got to play so we are more experienced this year.”
The volleyball team has performed up to many people’s expectations on the team. They believe that they have performed to their best every time that they have played and they have just had a few mistakes that have caused them to come up short in some of their games.
“I felt like we were going to be a pretty decent team at the beginning of the season and we have played up to expectations by performing to our best in each game,” said senior Kala Ford.
The team feels that their effort has really helped them in their last few games and they are looking to fight it out until the end. The Lady Vikings are going to continue to work hard and if you get the chance to come and support them then you should while you still can.
