Women’s volleyball season over with loss in Sectionals


Senior Emily Horvath prepares to hit the ball. The women's volleyball team lost in the second round of Sectionals to Westfield High School.

The CHS women’s volleyball team lost to Westfield High School during the second round of Sectionals in three sets, 21-25, 21-25, 20-25. For the season, the team went 24-10.

In his first season at CHS, Head Coach Adam Havice said the team performed well. “I think this team had the talent and capabilities to win State, but we just got a bit unlucky and the girls were tired after the first game,” Havice said.

Emily Horvath, varsity player and senior, said the first round of Sectionals against Hamilton Southeastern High School, which was over two hours long, made her physically and mentally tired. “Playing two very intensive games back-to-back really made us exhausted. We tried really hard and I think that our fatigue made us make mistakes we usually avoid,” Horvath said.

The team had six seniors, many of whom will continue to play at the collegiate level. Havice said, “Having six players, including captain Morgan Seaman, leave the team will really hurt us, but younger players are challenged to step up and fill in their shoes. We played well this year, but I know we will come back and be stronger next year.”
