For the second year in a row, the Glenwood Rams volleyball team went to state. They are cementing their legacy  after going for the first time in GCHS history last year.

The Lady Rams played the West Delaware Hawks on November 2. They played a tough opponent but unfortunately lost in five sets (17-25 26-24 25-20 22-25 14-16). Although the team came up short in this hard fought battle, they still had an amazing and record-breaking season.  

Head Coach Chelsey Hurt was more than pleased with the team and knows that they fought their heart out in that match. 

I am very proud of this team and this season,” said Hurt. “We have overcome so many obstacles that tried to get in our way, and we didn’t let them phase us. We played with heart every game and stayed composed to get to where we wanted to go.”

This 2020 team has definitely been through a lot of ups and downs but overcame adversity caused by the pandemic and made this a remarkable season. 

Impressive records have been broken this year. Senior Grace Boles has the record of 818 assists in one season and senior Elle Scarborough has 398 kills on the season. 

The seniors on the team gave the team great leadership, skill, and attitude. They were a big part of the team getting to state two years in a row. 

“We are losing three standout seniors,” said Hurt. “But we are returning many of this year’s varsity players that I am so excited to see take the leadership role of this team and see how far we can go again. It would not surprise me if this team makes it to the state tournament for the third time in a row.”

The Glenwood Volleyball team had an amazing season with so many records broken, but next year is right around the corner and the team and Ram fans will be ready.
