The BHS Volleyball team has been on a roll this season. The team is 8-2, and they have won five in a row. The Bulldogs have already beat some quality teams, and show no signs of slowing down.

On October 22, they played Plymouth during senior night. The game means a lot to their whole team. “This is the last time this exact group of girls get the chance to play a game on our home court, and it’s the last time that the seniors on the team get to play on the home court ever again. When senior night comes, it really hits you that this part of your life is coming to a close,” said senior Emily Podolski.

The team played like it was their last home game ever. The energy was high, and after every point the team was either cheering for each other after a good play or encouraging each other after a mistake. The players on the bench were on their feet and supporting the players on the floor the whole time.

Before the game, the team honored the hard work of the seniors by saying some words about each one before the game. The underclassmen had shirts that said ‘we love our seniors’, and the seniors had shirts that said ‘I am loved’. 

The love for the seniors was felt at the end of the game, when up 23-19 in the third set, injured senior Solana Hickenson was put into the game to serve. Hickenson ended up serving the final two points to win the set. It was one of the most meaningful moments of the night, and perfectly capped off an amazing game for the entire team.

The Bulldogs ended up dominating, defeating Plymouth 3-0. “It meant a lot to end our last game on our home court with a win. All of us felt like we had left all that we had on the court and we were really happy with the outcome,” said senior captain Celia Cullen.
