The EPMS 8th grade varsity volleyball team wrapped up their season beating White Mountain Middle School to clench an undefeated season going 10 and 0. The ladies faced tough opponents all season long, but were able to consistently match skills and heart to come out on top.
With consistent servers like Taylor Bernhardt, Megan Cowden, Taylor Hines, Brianna Shopp, and Kaya Hoag putting the ball in play was never a problem. On the offensive side, Taylor Bernhardt, Liz DeVaughn, Molly Hildreth, and Kaya Hoag developed well as setters helping to set up the Panther’s devastating hitting attack. Kinsey Bradshaw, Ali Nesberg, and Brianna Shopp topped off the Lady Panthers hitting squad. Other players of note for this season were Taytum Robinson, Karly Tolen, and Danielle Whipple who helped bind this team with hustle, enthusiasm, positive attitudes, and being great go-to players.
Coach Edgren commented that all players on this team improved their skills both offensively and defensively. She was proud of her ladies and how they continued to work hard and improve as a team – way to go ladies.
