Eagles’ Volleyball Handles Stanwood: Eyes on State

The Eagles outscored Stanwood 75-40 in 3 sets, leading the entire match wire-to-wire and, most importantly, continuing their undefeated season. It has been a year unprecedented in recent history for Eagles’ volleyball, producing more excitement and postseason hope than that of many seasons prior.

Led by a flock of seniors, including setter Ally Peterson (’17), the team has dominated nearly every team in its path, leaving no doubt as to which side was dominant. That streak wasn’t about to end tonight. Jessica Baker (’17) had more than her fair share of kills at the net, helping to inspire her teammates and the crowd, which seems to expand three-fold each home match. Baker, along with senior cohort Mackenzie Massey (’17), who dominated from the service line, were just two of the standouts on a loaded team brimming with depth who propel Arlington to victory week in and week out.

The Eagles, who, relying heavily on their strong senior efforts, have had their minds set on state participation since the beginning of the season, should build confidence (if that’s even possible, at this point) after such a blowout against Stanwood. League postseason play begins quite shortly, so stay tuned to find out when and where you can watch them play with fire and determination.
