Abbie V. hits the ball. St. John hits it back. Shepherd strikes once more, and the ball goes down on the opposite side of the net. Shepherd wins! The volleyball season just ended with a tournament . The tournament went on for two days: Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Their first game was against Trinity . They played really hard and their hard work paid off because they won! After that game they took a break from playing volleyball to watch the other teams play. The next team they played was Bethlehem . It was a very close game. This game they lost. The next team they played was St. John. They played a really tough game and they won. The last game they played was Trinity. They lost. The team was very devastated. But their hard work paid off; they got fourth place in the tournament. They won all of their games before the tournament. The Shepherd volleyball girls also spread the love of God wherever they went. The encouraged the other teams and were very happy for the other teams no matter if they won or lost. And they had a really good time. This year the volleyball girls came home with two trophies and one medal. The first trophy is a smaller trophy for fourth place in the tournament. The second trophy was a big trophy that was for Christian Sportsmanship. The special medal was for Emily Fenstermacher who gave the most sportsmanship during the games. She's very happy to get this award. The whole tournament went very well, and the girls had a lot of fun during the season. Overall, the volleyball girls did a fabulous job during the season and are proud of their work.
