The 2019 Frankenmuth Varsity Volleyball season came to an end tonight in the District Finals with a tough loss 12-25, 16-25, 21-25 to the TVC Conference and TVC Tournament Champions, the Birch Run Panthers. “I am extremely proud of the way our team kept improving throughout the match, set by set, they were determined to fight to stay in it. The Panthers have very smart outside hitters that kept our defense guessing the entire night and their defense is hard to score on. They kept us out of system most of the night with tough serving–a trademark of the Panthers–which prevented us for executing more often offensively out of the middle. The Eagles stayed strong throughout the match and played with fight and heart. There were plenty of spectacular Eagle executions! I could not be more proud of this group of incredible young ladies that I have had the pleasure of coaching this season. Our five seniors (Jordyn Conrad, Brooklin Karwat, Danielle Rummel, Chelsea Merkiel, and Courtney Palmer) will most definitely be missed but the Eagle sub-varsity teams have had much success this past season and there are talented players rising up in the ranks to fill the void of their departure.” -Shelly Conrad
The Eagles finish with a record of 25 wins, 12 losses, and 5 ties this season.
