UNION CITY – Mississinawa Valley celebrated senior night to honor four seniors despite the match against Bradford not counting in the record books.
Due to a scheduling conflict and too many games on the Bradford schedule, the Mississinawa Valley game turned into a scrimmage.
The Blackhawks won all four sets in their scrimmage with Bradford.
The Blackhawks honored seniors Amanda Armstrong, Kinsie Blocher, Makenna Price and Stevi Keen.
“It’s too bad this happened, but we did the best we could to try and come up with a way to honor our seniors,” Mississinawa Valley volleyball coach Billie Hunt said. “They are a great group of girls. I have coached them since the seventh grade and all through high school.
“Amanda Armstrong has amazed me ever since I put her on varsity as a sophomore. At the time I wasn’t sure it was a going to be a good decision … but she proved it was the right one,” Hunt said.
“Makenna Price has been an all-around player for us and has kept that going throughout her career.
“Stevi Keen played libero for us the first time this year as a senior and has done very well so far.
“Kinsie Blocher does whatever we need. She goes and does her job. She is a smart player,” Hunt added.
“Our girls handed a bad situation well tonight. I told them just go out and have fun. This is your senior night, your last home game in this gym, so go out and enjoy it,” Hunt concluded.
