Leading up to Windy Gap, conversations buzzed about the events that would take place. Students in all classes discussed how they could win this event or that one, only to be shut down by seniors informing the underclassmen that they have no chance because the seniors will win everything.

This may have been the case with the majority of events, namely, dodgeball, kickball, and ultimate frisbee. But, there was one event in which they took second place.

Volleyball.

The juniors have been back to back champions in this event at Windy Gap. They won it this year, as well as last year as sophomores.

The first matchup was between the freshmen and seniors, where the seniors walked away with a win. The next game was juniors against sophomores in which the juniors won. After the defeat, the sophomores beat the freshmen to take third place. The juniors went on to face the seniors and, despite the fact that the seniors were predicted by many to win, the class of 2019 reigns victorious with their back to back wins.

With senior Blake Preston and junior Garrett Shrader facing off at the net in the final, a tough game was inevitable. The long rallies consisted of several swings by each hitter and great ups by the back row on both sides.

After quite a fight, the seniors could no longer defend the juniors. The junior class won the final match 2-0.

Will the class of 2019 get the 3-peat next year?
