Volleyball team falls to Ankeny in four sets

The CFHS volleyball season has come to an end after losing a hard fought battle against Ankeny Centennial in Marshalltown on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

After losing the first game 22-25, the Tigers fought back and won the next game 25-22. In the last two games the Tigers just fell short with scores of 18-25 and 19-25.

Although the girls didn’t quite go as far as they wanted to in their season, they still accomplished a lot and finished the season with a record of 31-9.

For some of the girls, this is the last game they will play as a Tiger. Senior Kaz Brown ended the night with seven blocks and 12 kills. Senior Andrea Leisinger put down eight kills and also got three blocks. Many of these hits were set up by Senior Emily Hendrickson who had 33 assists. “The next year is always different without this year’s seniors. Each senior class brings her own type of leadership and things to each team,” head coach Matt Flaherty said.

The team had many high points to their season.They beat Waterloo West 3-0 to allow them to the game to play Ankeny Centennial. They were also the first team in Cedar Falls history to win the MVC Supermeet after beating Xavier, who they had lost to earlier in the season.

“This is one of the most ‘team’ teams I have coached. When playing together, they truly define team,” Flaherty said.
