On Sunday, November 2nd, Immaculate Heart Academy’s volleyball team won against the highly aggressive Demarest Norsewomen in the Bergen County Final Championship Game.
Stakes were high at Old Tappan High School Sunday afternoon. The first two sets of the championship game were truly anxiety-ridden. The Blue Eagles and Norsewomen pulled close scores of (27-25) and (20-25) making it (1,1) by the third set.
With several injuries and a tied score, the last set was a true test of IHA’s ability.
Junior setter, Caitlyn Floyd, says, “They were a tough opponent but we didn’t give up. I still had confidence that we were going to win.”
The third set was when the IHA girls delivered their fatal blows. In the last set alone, The Blue Eagles managed 12 kills, 4 blocks, and 2 aces. With this, Immaculate Heart succeeded in winning (2-1).
Junior middle hitter, Annabel Reyes, says, “I think we pulled the win in the 3rd set because we really came together. We motivated each other and never gave up. Supporting each other really means a lot to us.”
The team is applauded for all its success this season and praised for the unrelenting effort and dedication.
