Senior players will serve their last game at The Nest as volleyball celebrates Senior Night Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. against the Lebanon Trailblazers.

“My senior year has been the best year for me,” senior Lauren Ransom said. “It’s been so much fun to play with all of my close friends and I’m so sad that it is getting so close to the end. We have all worked so hard to get us to where we are right now, we practice every morning and continue to play great in any game. When we play Lebanon Trail again, we just have to keep our energy up. It is so much easier to do that when everyone is giving everything they have.  Lebanon is a good team, but we have proven that we can beat them and keep our district record.”

The team enter Tuesday’s game having already clinched the District 9-5A championship with another win allowing the team to finish the district season undefeated. Senior Emily Nickel is striving to add an eighteenth win onto their perfect record.

“My senior season has honestly been a dream come true, my most fun year in Redhawk volleyball and definitely has been so surreal,” senior Emily Nickel said. “Obviously we want to finish the season 18-0 because no liberty team has finished undefeated since like 2008 and I think it would be super cool to be a part of something like that. And against Lebanon we just need to work as a team and stay consistent, we’ve worked super hard in practice preparing for this game and we just need to show up and show out.”
