The Sequoits competed at the Elkhorn volleyball tournament.

On Saturday, Sept. 17 the Antioch Sequoits girls volleyball team played a total of three games at a tournament up in Elkhorn, Wisconsin. The Sequoits finished with a record of two wins and one loss. The Sequoits lost their first game of the tournament against Milton High School but bounced back and won the next two games.

“I’m actually pretty pleased with how the weekend went,” senior Hannah Runyard said. Unfortunately, we’ve been kind of losing a few of our conference games so going two and one over the weekend was definitely a hurray and we actually won more sets and more games than I thought we would.”

In the Sequoits’ second game they won each set soundly to defeat the opponent. The last game was a bit more of a nail bitter with the Sequoits pulling out a two-to-one victory. With the finish line in sight, the Sequoits are more determined to mesh with each other and win as many games as they. 

“We hit our stride in the tournament in the third game where we really came together and played the best out of the whole day,” senior Katie Timmer said.

There were some good performances during the tournament. But according to some of her teammates, the best performance was from junior Nora Larsen.

Nora Larsen played the best during the games we played,” junior Brynn Glauser said. “She had amazing hits that led to us winning our last game against Elkhorn” 

The Sequoits are continuing to try and hit their stride. The girls are trying to take the momentum they picked up from this tournament and use it for the remainder of the season.

With the end of the season in sight for the Sequoits, they are doing everything in their power to win the remainder of the games. Becoming a closer team and meshing with each other will only help as the rest of the season moves forward.
