SEATTLE – The Spartans closed out the volleyball season with a grueling run through the Metro League Tournament before facing a boomerang battle against Holy Names Academy in district play.

Bainbridge took seventh place in the Metro League Tournament.

The Spartans started strong by beating Nathan Hale 3-0 (25-9, 25-14, 25-20); then fell two days later to Eastside Catholic, 1-3.

A fateful matchup in the next round against Holy Names saw the Spartans blanked 0-3, but Bainbridge then bounced back to beat Bishop Blanchet 3-1 to secure the seventh place spot in Metro.

The Spartans entered district play ranked as the 10th seed.

In the first round of districts, Bainbridge put up a good fight but got knocked out of the post season by Holy Names in three sets.

“While we had hoped to get further in post-season this year, I’m very proud of how our Bainbridge squad played this season,” said Spartan Coach Dominique Atherley. “We had a great group of young women who competed every practice and fought in every game.”

“They brought great energy to the court and I hope that is something we can continue to build on next season,” she said.

Bainbridge finished the season at 4-6 in Metro, 11-9 overall.

Four Spartans earned accolades at the end of the season, and Bainbridge High had two athletes named First Team All Metro.

Olivia Marshall and Erica Sprott were selected for the Metro League honors.

Maggie Sweeney earned a spot on Second Team All Metro, while Sydney Maria was an All Metro Honorable Mention for BHS.
