Tuesday September 5th, 2023 the Davenport West volleyball teams made a clean sweep on sophomore, JV, and varsity. They versed Clinton High School in a close and intense match, where both the sophomore and varsity teams went to 5 sets. The JV team took an exceptional win as well, in only two sets. The victories gave the volleyball team a great boost to the beginning of the season.

“I felt excited to have our first win of the season, and that all of our hard work paid off,” sophomore Avery Stineman said.

Winning is a great feeling, especially when it is the first one of the season, but it takes the whole team to make it happen.

“Everyone was really supportive and congratulating each other…and just working together as a team,” senior captain Sammie Wisely said.

The West volleyball team showed that you need to work as a team to reach your goals, and boost each other up in the process.

“Whenever someone gets a really good kill or block…it helps to hype us up,” Wisely said.

Staying positive and hyping each other up throughout the whole game contributed to the teams’ victories. Volleyball is a team sport that requires every member to give their full effort, which West succeeded at. These teams had their ups and downs but made it to the finish line with an overall win.
