Continuing their 22 game winning streak and grabbing the title of area champs for the third consecutive year, the Redhawk volleyball team took down the R.L. Turner Lions 3-0 (25-5, 25-14, 25-12) Thursday at Berkner High School.

“I felt like we were on and off,” senior Kyla Crawford said. “It gives us a challenge to play teams that aren’t as skilled as we are, but still strive to be our best and win.”

Moving on to the third round of playoffs, the Redhawks are gearing up for an intense match with 6-time state champion, Lovejoy on Tuesday, a team that has ended the Redhawks playoff run for the past two years.

“The win last night sets us up because we continue to have the momentum of winning, and we keep getting more excited and more excited, and for the game against Lovejoy, we can be at our peak,” junior Emma Varela said. “I think we did really well, and our stands were cheering us on really well, and it was just really exciting, the whole atmosphere of it.”
