Serving Up Support on the Court

Seniors Kasey Trzaska, Julia Gawel, and Abby Wolfe work together to help senior Morgan Stoner to score a point for their team against Hillsborough.

The girls’ volleyball team served up a successful 2023 season on the court; however, the experience off the court is what proved to be most memorable for the players this year. With an impressive record of 14-6 and 9-3 in the GMC, the athletes had another memorable season.

Senior Abby Wolfe, who finished her final season playing on the EBHS volleyball team this year, explained how before the season began she was “nervous to lead the team along with the other seniors.” She expressed the pressure she was feeling saying, “we have had great seniors in the past who have pushed us and taught us about unity and grit” and she was worried about not being that same kind of role model. After a season full of laughs and fond memories, Abby came to realize that she had nothing to worry about because “these girls were the most determined people [she had] ever worked with” and they were so warm and welcoming to her leadership.

Victories are nice, but it was actually the close-knit bonds and relationships forged off the court that stuck with the players most. For many EBHS sports, it is tradition to have a pre-season pasta party to celebrate the upcoming season and spend quality time with teammates. For these players, no topic is too below the net for the dinner table. When I asked Selena about the tea spilled at the pasta party, she laughed knowingly and said she “could tell [her team] anything”. Even their most embarrassing moments are revealed while passing around the fettuccine alfredo (which may or may not end up on the bathroom wall). For Selena and the other athletes, what they take away from the season is less about the number on the scoreboard and more about the laughs and linguini.
