She spikes, She scores

Each game brings about a new set of feelings for Rider’s Varsity Volleyball team.  The Rider/Old High match is no different.  The girls huddle up and say a prayer to calm the nerves, then the time comes, the time to shine.

“I felt numb because of the adrenaline pumping through my body,” Varsity Volleyball co-Captain Abby Watts said.

It all paid off, the nerves, the exitement, the adrenaline, and the prayer when the Lady Raiders won the final match of the 5 match game with a score of 15-11.

“We have a great team this year,” Varsity Volleyball co-Captain Cortny Pritt said. “Each position is spot on.”

The team will be playing Old High again Oct. 10 for the Think Pink game, where they will be raising money for Cancer research. Pritt says the game is important because it involes the whole school from t-shirt sales to donations.

“We’re a team  in Wichita Falls and we make that kind of a difference,” Pritt said. “It’s a priviledge.”
