Purple and black balloons filled the gym. Names of seniors were chanted in the crowd. It was Sequoia’s senior night, but that did not stop the Scots from winning their final season game.

It was Sequoia’s senior night, but that did not stop the Scots from winning their final season game.

On Oct. 27 the Lady Scots stormed into the Cherokee’s gym to win their final game of the season. After a four-set game, the Scots were able to gain a win with high momentum and determination to win their last game before CCS.

The Scots came out strong and started the game with high energy, determined to win. Long rallies took place on the court, keeping the crowds at the edge of their seat. Senior Sarah Smyth dove for balls earning a series of points for the Scots.

“Smyth did really well. Her serves and her saves really helped us win this game. She talked to us on the court and helped us through the game. She really kept our heads in the game,” said junior Sophie Srivastava.

Srivastava also was an essential player in the game as setters on both teams stayed focused and played with all their effort. Senior Emma Chamberlin on the Cherokees has had a strong reputation throughout the season, yet Srivastava came back just as strong as the setters competed to set up plays for their teammates.

The Scots were able to win the first set 25-21 with high adrenaline and motivation from each other.

Head Coach Chris Crader said, “Srivastava did really well with setting throughout the entire game. Smyth also put in all her effort to this last game and had some nice saves for this team. We started off strong and it got a little bumpy along the way but we were able to finish it up.”

The Scots continued their momentum in the second set winning 25-15. Yet the third set was a challenge as the Cherokees came back in attempts to earn a win. The teams were neck and neck throughout the set as the Scots’ plays were not turning out as they thought. The Cherokees won the third set 26-24 with their strong hits and blocks on the court.

As the final set came around, the Scots got their heads in the game and gained momentum. Freshman Morgan McClellan hit the ball over the net earning points for the Scots. The Scots won their final set of the season with a 25-21 win. 

“Now with CCS coming up, we need to work on our transitions and keep trying our best to do well against the other teams,” said Junior Maya McClellan.
