The Red Wing volleyball team celebrated its seniors with speeches pregame, then won their match in four sets Thursday over Goodhue 25-19, 25-11, 22-25, 25-23.
Head coach Nikki Roschen said the pregame specialties brought up some emotion.
“That emotion got us going, and we played some excellent, all-around volleyball with impressive passing, defense, and offense in the first two sets,” Roschen said. “However, Goodhue has some great athletes, and they responded well in the third set. I'm just proud of the girls that they showed grit to pull out another hard-fought match to win it in the fourth.”
