The Benet girls volleyball team is off to a rolling 16-2 start. They have punished almost everyone who tried to step in their way, and now, they currently sit at the top of their conference. The volleyball team opened up their 2017 season in New Lenox against Providence. After grabbing the two-sets-to-none victory, they have not held back, winning the next 15 out of 17 games including the 35th Benet Academy Invitational Tournament.

Starting off strong comes with a lot of pressure. They won their first 15 games before losing to Marist on September 16. When asked about the loss, junior Caitlin McKee said, “When we played Marist, it was a really fast-paced game and made everyone play at the top of their game for the whole three sets.” They rebounded nicely by beating Nazareth on their home floor, two sets to none. Their only other loss came to Wheaton North, five days after losing to Marist. When asked about the key to their success this season, McKee stated, “Everyone is working to get better and make their teammates better. Our coaches constantly remind us of where we want to be at the end of the season, and it keeps us motivated.”

During the team’s home tournament, The Benet Academy Invitational, the Redwings took home first place in convincing fashion. Of the six games they played, they won every game, and only lost one set.

The Redwings are starting off the year strong. With their track record so far, the rest of the season looks promising. Time will tell if they can keep up the success. However, the team needs support from their peers! Home games are free admission for students! Come join the girls varsity volleyball team at their next home game, no charge.
