Broken Arrow volleyball gets ready for a big game against Ponca City.

At number five in the standings, the volleyball team is hoping to end the season with a strong finish. Right now they are 12-5 on the season, and hope to win the rest of their regular season games. There are some new faces on varsity this season, and Coach Ian Bullen expects them to step up this season.

“We have a few girls who will be playing on varsity for their first time this season,” Bullen said. “I expect them to blend in with our more veteran players to make a strong run by the end of the season.”

So far this has been a winning season, including beating Stillwater in the Bishop Kelly Tournament, and beating top 10 opponent Owasso.

“The best moment of the season so far has probably been winning every match to five we’ve ever played, especially against Bishop Kelley and Stillwater because they’re both good competitors,” senior Erianna Murray said.

Both wins have moved them up in the rankings. They have one major goal as the season comes to an end.

“My expectations this year for the team is to win state and get a ring,” senior Makina Wratten said.

Volleyball will face Charles Page High School in the Tiger Fieldhouse, on Sept. 26. Student tickets are $3, and adults are $5, or all-access/athletic passes are accepted.
