Spartans roar to win on Senior Night

The Bainbridge High girls varsity volleyball team had its Senior Night versus Seattle Prep and a little bit of sadness was mixed with sweet, sweet success.

The Spartans won in three sets with scores of 25-15, 26-24, 25-19.

“It was a high energy match from the Spartans who had a solid match. Seattle Prep put up a good fight, but the excitement from Senior Night kept Bainbridge’s energy up the whole match,” said Spartan Coach Dominique Atherley.

Taylor Jumpa had seven kills and six digs for BHS. Emily Tibbens added one ace, three digs and passed a 2.75 average for Bainbridge.

Maggie Sweeney contributed three aces, eight kills, two blocks and 16 digs. Erica Sprott came up big with four blocks, 16 assists and five digs.

Senior Night marked a great goodbye for the program, and bigger than most.

The Spartan volleyball program will be graduating 10 seniors: Jumpa, Tibbens, Sweeney, Sprott, Gabi Dallman, Grace Cisneros, Stella Streufert, Olivia Marshall, Sydney Maria and Hailey Capps.

“As we head into post season next week, we will continue to rely on the leadership that our seniors provide,” Atherley said.

Bainbridge was scheduled to start the first round of the Metro Tournament Tuesday at Eastside Catholic against Nathan Hale.
