Love between team mates flooded the court as the varsity volleyball team earned a win on their annual senior night to celebrate the seniors and their final moments on the Carlmont team.

The crowd cheered as the Lady Scots played their final season game on Nov. 5 against the Sequoia Cherokees. The Carlmont varsity team dove across the court and killed balls over the net as they worked together to earn a victory in honor of the seniors.

Senior Erin Alonso said, “There was lots of love out on the court tonight and although it’s sad it’s the last home game, we will keep working hard for CCS.”

As the game began, the Scots immediately brought their A-game as they won the first set with a score of 25-15. Sophomore Maya McClellan and senior Alexis Morrow, an unstoppable combined force throughout the course of the season, continued to play well together to be a significant force in the victory.

McClellan said, “I’m surprised that I’m not in tears right now. I can’t even think about the seniors leaving because they have been here since I first started as a freshman. I can not imagine this team without them.”

As the second set began, Carlmont lost their lead in the game as the Cherokees held the upper hand on the court. Yet, the Scots did not let the Cherokees take home a win on senior night as they pulled their game together and came back with a 25-21 win. Seniors Elena Mateus and Erin Alonso dove for balls across the court as they made save after save in their team’s favor. Senior Mia Hogan scored the final point of the second set with a kill against the Cherokees.

The Scots played hard in the final set of the game, earning a 25-22 win against the rival team. During the final moments on the court, they motivated each other to keep working hard to take home a traditional win on senior night.

Coach Chris Crader said, “We will miss the seniors, but I am thankful we still have CCS because we need to keep these girls for as long as we can.”
