The Final Stretch

Brit Bahr, Northwest Student Assistant Volleyball Coach

As we head into our last week of the season, I ask myself, “Where did the season go?”

It seems like just yesterday that I was in Jess’s office this summer talking to her about how excited I was for everyone to arrive on campus and to see them all play together.  Now, we only have three matches left.   This season hasn’t exactly gone the way we expected, but we stayed together as a unit through it all. We have had incredible team chemistry this year.  It has been amazing to see the girls stick together through the incredible wins and the difficult losses.

In this last week, I believe that our team will finish the season on a high note.  They will fight for every point and show their passion for the game.  Tuesday night is Senior Night at 7 pm against Pitt State at Bearcat Arena.  It is our last home game of the season and the team will battle to defend our home court for the last time this year.  Please come out and support our team, especially our seniors, Alex Hanna and Laira Akin.  It is a game that you don’t want to miss!

We will finish the season this weekend away at Southwest Baptist on Friday and Missouri Southern on Saturday.

Help cheer on the team to finish the season with a 3-0 record this week!
