Girls Volleyball in Semi-Finals!

[written by Jasmin Hussain]​

Congratulations to SLA's girls volleyball team for making it to the district semifinals! The team is having a terrific year in the Gold Division. They won three back to back games last Thursday and Monday-- first, winning 3-2 sets against Bodine, then 3-0 against Lincoln which concluded the season. The girls went on to play against CAPA and got their first playoff win ever with 3-1 sets. The Rockets have made it to the finals and will play Masterman this Friday, October 25th.

At the CAPA playoff game, sophomore Malwina Dymek once again scored multiple consecutive points putting SLA in the lead. Co-captian Leah Petty joined forces with SLA-Beeber freshmen Alisa Foster by setting the balls and hitting them over to the other side flawlessly.  All in all, the girls were quite impressive on the court!

This season has been one of the most challenging seasons the Rockets have faced, yet the team is playing tough, showing great teamwork, and working hand in hand with Coach Hirschfield to make it this far. Go Rockets!
