The girl’s volleyball team went 2-1 this week, with wins over Somerset Central Miramar in straight sets and David Posnack Jewish Day School in a tight 4-setter. They were defeated by Chaminade-Madonna, who currently sit atop the district standings.
The Lions demonstrated amazing serving and team play. Senior Olga Benacerraf played a crucial role in the Lions’ two wins this week, playing both right side hitter and setter. “This [the Posnack game] was the best game we’ve played in my high school career,” Olga mentioned. “We entered the court as a just a group of girls, and got on the bus as a victorious family.”
Olga was also part of an emotional senior night, standing beside her fellow seniors: Shira Sredni, Orli Algranatti, Alicia Matsas, Kaylee Wolf, and Maeve Donaher. The rest of the team organized a moving tribute to the senior group, who have in years past advanced to several District Semifinals.
Next Thursday, the #2 seed Lions cross county lines and travel to Avant Garde Academy Broward in an inter-district matchup.
