Holy Family High School
It was senior night for the Tigers as the hosted Niwot for what was certainly their biggest match so far this season. After losing the first 2 sets, the Tigers came away with strong wins in sets 3 and 4 to tie it. Going into the 5th set, the Tigers knew that they had to play hard and with purpose, and in the end they came away with the win 17-5.
Sara Berghoff did an amazing job of running the Tigers on offense, and Ali Travis led the Tigers with 26 kills. Rachel Siurek had 17 kills, and Jody Gallagher had 9 kills. The Tigers played a solid defense game and both Julia Giltner had 6 blocks, and Jody Gallagher and Rileigh Lynch had 4 blocks each. Peyton Frank had 21 digs while Sophie Ryan and Ali Travis both had 20 digs. Sara Berghoff had 19 digs, and Biance Eldridge had 18 digs.
While this is certainly a talented squad, tonight it was their ability to play together and for each other that really made the difference. The fan support was incredible, and only helped to give the Tigers the push to come back and get the win. The Tigers finish their regular season tomorrow night as they travel to Mead.
