The West Branch freshman-sophomore volleyball team competed twice this week.


The team kicked off conference play on Aug. 31 at home against Wilton. The Bears defeated the Beavers in two sets, winning 25-18 and 25-6.

The team included: Aubrey Baylor, Melanie Lamont, Maddie DeJong, Savannah Sexton, Chloe Pence, Clara Kobbernagel, Abby Westcott, Lila Krall, Jaclyn Bloem and Maddy Hatfield. The coach is Katie Mathis.

The team then traveled to Williamsburg on Saturday for a Round Robin Tournament. The girls swept their competition, finishing 8-0 on the day.

They faced English Valley (21-4, 21-6), Mid-Prairie (21-17, 21-18), Williamsburg (21-18, 21-18), and Mt. Vernon (21-17, 21-18).

“We knew going into the last match against Mt. Vernon that they would be our toughest competition of the day,” Mathis said. “But the girls were really determined and battled back from a significant deficit in the first set to win.”

For the tournament, the team included: Lexi Peak, Aubrey Baylor, Melanie Lamont, Maddie DeJong, Savannah Sexton, Chloe Pence, Clara Kobbernagel, Abby Westcott, Lila Krall, and Jaclyn Bloem. Not present: Maddy Hatfield and Nicki Henson.
