St Mary’s volleyball

After an early skills competition, the girls took on OSD for one final set
and the silver bracket title. We came in knowing a little about the team
as we had played
them twice the day before but our girls stayed cool under pressure and
came out on top with a 25-19 score. The girls really played well together
this whole weekend
and all their teamwork paid off as they are now the silver bracket champs.
If you see the ladies this week congratulate them on a job well done.
