The Hamilton varsity volleyball season dwindled to an end with the team finishing with a record of 22-19-5.

According to Coach Abby Ekkens she believes that the season went, “okay” but that the team expected it to go better. Over all they have improved since day one of the fall volleyball season.

“We had lots of good times along with bad,” sophomore Courtney Vande Vorde said. “We work well as a team when everyone is ‘all in’.”

Coach Ekkens thought they beat some tough competition, but “fell into a slump in the middle of the season.”

They also worked hard to overcome injuries to key players in Erin Meiste and Josie VanderVeen.

Accomplishments the girls had included winning tournaments, coming in 2nd at Calvin Christian and taking the silver bracket at the Wayland tournament.

“I’m most proud of the girls overcoming obstacles, outside of volleyball,” Coach Ekkens said. Also they have grown as a team and have learned a lot.

Districts began Monday with Unity Christian.

Going into the game, Coach Ekkeens felt the team could beat Unity Christian, and will play a competitive game.

“We have a good chance to play for (district) championship,” she said.

They ended up beating Unity Christian in three straight sets.

“I am expecting districts to go very well.We are all really excited, as a team, we will work our hardest for our school,” Vande Vorde said.

The team lost to Zeeland West in five games to end the season Tuesday, Oct. 30.
