The Hopewell girls’ volleyball team faced off against OLSH last night in a big section game. The girls came into this game going 1-2 last week and were looking for a bounce back game against one of the teams they lost to last week.
Unfortunately, the girls fell short of the victory tonight but gave it their all. The loss now puts the Vikings in a tough spot for making the playoffs, as they’ll have to win some big games in the future in order to qualify.
Some key players for the Vikings tonight were senior captain setter Haley Hineman, her twin senior D/S Kendall Hineman, junior MH Alyssa Spang and last but not least junior D/S Mena Catanzarite.
