[BRIEF] An emotional end to the season: volleyball hosts end-of-year banquet

AN EMOTIONAL END: Yesterday night, the volleyball program capped off its season with its annual banquet. Each coach gave a speech about their team, and seniors shared a speech about their time in the program.

Individual player awards were also presented to each varsity player.

Senior right side hitter Kiera Metz, recipient of the Champion of Character award, said she was thankful for the opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the teams and to come together as “one giant family.”

“Seeing my teammates being celebrated for doing their best all season long was a great way to officially end my last volleyball season,” Metz said. “As you probably know, it was very emotional.”

Senior outside hitter Eliza Konvicka, who was named Scholar Athlete and Co-MVP, expressed similar feelings as Metz.

“It’s always sweet to see the seniors being thankful to the coaches and their parents,” Konvicka said. “It was a really nice way to end the season and for everyone to be recognized for their continued efforts.”
