The first day of varsity volleyball was intense! In the first match of the day, Thunder Ridge beat out Rigby 3-1. Madison took on Highland for the second match. The play was strong from both teams.
Madison finds itself without two of its strongest players, Charity Wilson and Maddi Wilcox. Both suffered injuries this season and will not be back in time for state. Even without them, though, the team put up a convincing victory against a strong Highland team.
Madison won the first two sets, but it was close. In the third set, Highland raised its intensity to an extremely high level. While Madison was in it point-for-point, Highland managed a win. The fourth set resulted in the same.
Coming into the fifth and tie-breaking set, both teams were focused on nothing but the win. Madison, however pulled away early and never looked back. On the back of nearly flawless play from several players, Madison won the set 15-9!
Madison will face Thunder Ridge tomorrow on the way to the championship match. Let's go, Madison!
