After a win on Tuesday, Oct. 11 against the LaFarge Wildcats the Seneca volleyball team hosted the Wauzeka-Steuben Hornets for Pink Night.
With a victory over the Hornets, the Indians were again conference champs on their own.
After a 7-7 start to Game 1, it was obvious the Hornets wanted to sting the Indians. That’s when Seneca decided that they didn't want to share the conference title and they came out swinging.
Leading the Indians at the net was Liv Swanson with 14 kills, Haley Wall with 10 kills and Emily Garfoot with nine kills.
Seneca setters were spot on for the hitters, coming up with 19 assists by Becky Trautsch, and 16 by Emily Garfoot.
Behind the line, serving was led by Becky Trautsch 24-24 with four aces. Emily Garfoot and Makenna Greene were both 6-6. Michelle Clark was 8-9 and Alivia Salinas was 12-13.
“The girls came out and played their hearts out and showed that they wanted to again win the conference championship,” Seneca coach Dawn Ray said later. “I, along with my other coaches, couldn't be more proud of these girls for setting a goal and working hard to achieve it. Now, it’s on to our next goal, because come tournament time we have to step onto the court and play with no regrets in the end, or we will be stepping off the court earlier than planned.”
Pink Night is about breast cancer awareness and the split from the 50-50 drawing is donated to that cause. We split the pot with all proceeds going to Breast Cancer Awareness the winnings were 94 dollars each. The winner was Royce Walters and he donated it all back.
“At the time I didn't know anything about it, but after the game I found his winning tucked back into my bag. So, I’d like to say thank you for Royce's generosity from the entire Seneca volleyball team. That donation made the total of $188 be given to breast cancer awareness.”
