  • Highlights from September 22nd against Monticello

    The 7th grade A volleyball team went 4 and 2 yesterday against Monticello.  Everyone on the team had great contributions. Kennedy M. had some great leadership and plays for the team and Morgan B. had some much-improved serving at key points in the match.

    8th Grade A volleyball remains undefeated as they took on Monticello last night, in what some would maybe call "the games of the century." Not all, but one might. The Knights were on fire! with 14 kills by Alexa, Arden, Briana, Julia, Addie, Lexi, Esme, Presley, and one game-winning kill by GIANNA. Amazing back row attacks by Lexi and Julia.  Alexa, Briana, Gianna, Kaidyn, and Greta were putting the magic defense in their place with their untouchable serves. Our setters Kaidyn, and Saddie had some great placed tips over the Monti blockers. But none of the blocks in the game could compare to our own Julia who shut down TWO HITS by Monticello with her strong blocks! Great job ladies!!

    The 8th grade B team came out hot last night, taking down Monticello 4-2. Chloe K ended game 3 with 5 serves in a row. It was a full team effort to take game 4. A great pass from Chloe B and set from Sam N led to an amazing kill from Addi. Peja V shut down Monticello's offense with great defense and Amanda K sealed the win with 3 back to back to back aces. Keep up the great work, Knights!

  • East Volleyball Highlights from 9/20 against Becker

    Last night, the Knights took on the Bulldogs for their first 8A volleyball game, and they trained those pups in all three games. Esme, Arden, and Lexi had some great kills at the net. Lexi took on a new position and still got the kills. Arden also showed off her serving skills with a 10-serve run. Addi, Esme, Kaidyn, and Saddie showed the pups a few aces. Great job taking the win in all three games ladies.

    8th Grade Volleyball B team did a great job during their season opener, with many girls playing in their first ever volleyball game. Gretta W. set the pace with multiple ACES and Peja V. let the defense with great serve receive passing. The play of the night came from Sam N. who set up Amanda K. for a stunning spike. 8th grade will be at home again tomorrow to take on Monticello - good luck Knights! 

    The MSE 7th grade volleyball teams won 5 of their 6 games on Tuesday night. The girls were excited, and all played well!  Danni Z. and Coral T. had some great diving plays.  Audrey B. and Ella C. were strong from the serving line, helping lead their team to victory. With lots of support in the stands and happy parents, it was a great night.
