The 7th and 8th grade volleyball teams hosted the Southmont Mounties in their season finale. The 7th grade volleyball team won 25-8, 25-12. The Stars ended the season undefeated. “This team was an awesome group to coach this year. They worked hard in practice and showed great improvement throughout the season. I look forward to watching the success they will have in the next few years at Western Boone” said Coach Ransom.
The 8th grade team ended a terrific season at 13-5 against Southmont 25-8, 25-16. This group overcame adversity from early in the season when the team’s setter, Addie Jones, was injured and unable to play. Addie rebounded very quickly and not only led the team in assists but also added an offensive presence at the net. Ella Shepherd and Gracie Miller did a fantastic job of scoring routinely as outside hitters and also defended the court very well. Alayna Christner led the team in blocks and with the help of Caitlin Pierce, they were hard to defend on the right side. Middles Annabelle Mickschl and Haleigh Smith played well at the net all season long. Clara Meadows and libero, Emma Miller were always ready to make a play in the back row. The Lady Stars made great strides through the season and have a very bright future ahead of them. – Coach Gubera
