PV girls varsity volleyball served up a great season.

The Pleasant Valley girls volleyball team started off strong with a 3-2 win against Davenport Central, and drove hard for the MAC title against Linn-Mar but had a tough 4-1 loss to end their season.

Before the season even started, the team attended open gyms and trained in order to prepare for the season. Everyday, they worked hard to achieve their goals for the season.

For their first game, the varsity girls took down Davenport Central, which was a great projection of how their season would play out.

Throughout their season, they had their ups and downs. The team ended their season with a record of 13-5-0, which was very impressive and well earned. Senior Kara Neuhaus said, “I thought we had an outstanding season. Even though it didn’t quite end how we had hoped, we improved a lot from where we began and developed a strong team bond.”

Every girl on that team is very passionate about what they do and how they do it, which could be part of the reason why they all mesh together so well. They all wanted to win and to do that, it required everyone working their hardest at the same goal.  

Varsity is going to be losing 3 seniors this year: Adrea Arthofer, Beth Peterson and Kara Neuhaus. All of them contributed a lot to the team and season as a whole with their hard work and their leadership mindsets. Starter Adrea Arthofer said, “I think the season went really well, and we did a good job growing as a team and performing above what was suspected.” As a senior, it’s very hard sometimes to get a team to come together and perform successfully, but all three seniors did a good job pursuing that task.

It’s also difficult for seniors to comprehend that it is their last high school season of volleyball. Kara Neuhaus expressed her feelings and said, “It still hasn’t really hit me that it’s fully over, but I’m so grateful for the four years I got in this program. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything!”

Losing seniors is hard for any sports team, and luckily for the varsity Volleyball team, they have prepared the incoming seniors extremely well for next season.
