In its final game of the season, a playoff play-in game with Aloha High School, the McNary High School varsity volleyball team was haunted by one of the same problems that surfaced regularly throughout the season: a weak first match.

“We started out pretty weak. The second game was a little better and the third games was a little better still. We never played to our best,” said Averi Wing, a Celtic senior. “They were good, but they were beatable.”

The Warriors swept the Celts in three games 25-11, 25-19, and 25-21.

Wing said the takeaway from the match was the necessity of each team member wanting the win.

The Lady Celts finished the season with an overall record of 10-12 and a league record of 4-6. Wing said the best moment for her was the Celts’ second match with South Salem High School.

“Coming back beating them after they beat us the first time through was really fun,” she said.
