(Nov. 9, 2018) The Stephen Decatur volleyball team’s playoff run ended Monday, when the Lady Seahawks lost to the Northeast Eagles of Anne Arundel in Pasadena.
Northeast earned the No. 2 seed in Section II of the 3A East Region tournament. Decatur received the No. 3 seed.
The Eagles took the first game, 25-16, but the Seahawks won the second, 25-19. Northeast topped Decatur, 25-19, in the third and fourth games.
“I am proud of how hard the girls fought during this game,” Decatur Coach Sara Patrick said. “We have three seniors. They are our captains and they played really well [Monday]. Adriana [Serpe] was strong at the net and had tons of aces. Morgan [Hayman] did a great job blocking and Grace [Beres] held the team together with her leadership.”
Decatur finished the season with a 6-10 record.
“The season was frustrating. The girls had a lot of skill, [but] we just couldn’t pull it together at times,” Patrick said. “We look solid for next year. We have a strong sophomore class moving up to varsity.”
