“The girls played hard and played together as a team,” Nellie Kirk, head coach, said. “It was a great end to the league season for us.”

The Tigers finished league play with a record of seven wins and seven loses.

In the match against Brewster, the Tigers lost in three sets of 25-20, 25-22 and 25-20.

“This finishes our season as the first round of the districts was loser out,” Kirk said. “We did have a good season. I am very proud of the team. They are a great group of girls. They worked very hard to finish with seven wins. They would have liked to go on to more district play but it just didn’t happen. As you can see, the scores were very close.”
