The varsity volleyball team (8-0) played the McNeil Mavericks in their Dig Pink game on Oct. 7 to help raise money for the Breast Cancer Resource Center. The Lady Warriors fought hard as soon as they stepped on the court.

Westwood had no trouble finding their rhythm. The game started with a serve by McNeil but Cara Dolbear ‘17 spiked the ball hard over the net, resulting in a point for the Warriors and causing the crowd to go wild. Despite Westwood’s original strong start, McNeil quickly began racking up points until Paige Etherington ‘17 was able to score and regain Westwood’s possession of the ball. After consistent serves by Tori Clitheroe ‘17 and Etherington, the Lady Warriors were able to win the first set with a score of 25-22.

“The game against McNeil was thrilling because even though they are one of the strongest teams in our district, we didn’t lose focus,” Maddi Kriz ‘19 said. “I can’t wait to see us play bigger teams in the playoffs.”

Westwood took an early lead in the second set and faced little resistance, winning the set 25-19 and triumphing over McNeil.

The Lady Warriors used their momentum from their previous sets’ lead and executed spectacular offensive plays, dominating the third set and winning with score of 25-15.
