Beaver Varsity Volleyball finished its season with a very strong display of play at the EIL tournament at Pingree. Our team finished the day 2-6 though three of our losses were incredibly close. Beaver stood out by accumulating several offensive kills, blocks, and aces. Our team was also recognized with All-League awards. Arielle Silbersweig ’14, our libero, was awarded a spot on the All-League team and Alea Laidlaw ’16, our outside hitter, received an honorable mention. The final record of Beaver volleyball does not properly illustrate the growth of our team and the high level of play they demonstrated throughout the season. Beaver volleyball continues to prove they are a force to be reckoned with and the team looks forward to future seasons.
