The West Henderson High School Volleyball team came out of the gate Tuesday full of excitement, eagerness, determination, and talent. After an incredible come-from-behind win over a powerful Enka team the night before – where the Falcons won the last three sets – they advanced to the MAC Conference Finals to face their rival all season: a very talented TC Roberson team.
The women of West Henderson was up for the challenge, and ready to remind everyone that this young team was a force to reckon with, even with the new conference alignments. This team came out on fire and took the first set, setting the tone for what would be an emotional and long night. After West took the first set, the second set went for extra points with TC Roberson answering the call and winning sets 2 and 3. Not ready to go home, the Falcons roared back with a convincing victory in the fourth set, with an emotional charge that made every Falcon fan proud.
As the fifth set began, the crowd got loud, each team’s fans working to make the neutral site less so. Unfortunately, the Falcon’s rally could not hold off the equally energized Rams, and the evening ended with TC Roberson taking this deciding set and the conference championship.
Congratulations to the TC Roberson Rams on their win and their great season.
A special shout-out to Ashely and Katrina on their selection to the all-conference tournament team!
I am so proud of these young ladies. They fought every step of the way and worked hard to represent West Henderson High School. I love this sport, and love watching these talented young women do so well. Congratulations on a great regular season, and good luck to you as the playoffs begin!
