The girls volleyball team played in an intense game friday against upper cape. The jv played a fierce game. Even though they lost they stayed strong and won 1/3 matches. Halie davenport was all over the court not afraid to dive for any balls. Brianna villanegre was essential to the defense for WB. as the Libero Autumn Belcher was unstoppable. The varsity volleyball team lost but put in great effort making the game very interesting to watch. The girls volleyed back and forth and kept the game alive. Brianna Alexander played the game of her life blocking anything that came onto the wildcats side of the net. Abby Bedard was a real team player setting perfect balls for the wildcats to slam over the net. Meghan Willis looked like she was 10 feet tall out on the court blocking any shot that came her way! If you want to see the game of the century Come out and support the girls at home Tuesday against Holbrook jv at 3:30 Varsity at 4:30!
