Wrapping up the 2022 volleyball season

Wrapping up the 2022 volleyball season

Tuesday, November 8, was the last volleyball game of the season for the Corry Lady Beavers. The girls played at 6 o’clock in the first round of state playoffs against the Freeport Yellow Jackets, who are ranked number one in the state. The Lady Beavers played hard, but ended up losing in 3, ending their season.

This whole season the girls worked very hard and put their hearts into every game they played this year. They ended up being 2nd in District 10 region 4, and got the incredible opportunity to play in the D10 championships. They went 7-1 in conference, winning every match except their last one versus North East, and they lost in 4 sets, taking the first but losing the following three.

Seniors Tayler Elchynski and Lakota Donaldson played their last game as a Lady Beaver on Tuesday.

Giving insight on how their senior season went, and how they feel about their high school career as a volleyball player being over. Elchynski said, “I think this season went well, it’s always fun to make it far in the D10 playoffs and go to the state playoffs. We knew our strengths and weaknesses as a team and I thought the whole year that we played very well together.”

Elchynski added, “It is sad that my high school volleyball season is over, I wish I had more time to be in the gym, but I know this team has great things in store for them next year, and I can’t wait to see their future.”

This is Donaldson’s view on how she thinks her final season went. “I think the season went pretty well, and I was happy how our team played throughout the season,” Donaldson said.  “It hasn’t hit me yet, but I think next year I will realize that I don’t have any more practices, games, or camps to go to anymore.”

Coach Goodsel also gave his input on how he believes this high school season went, stating, “The 2022 Corry Volleyball season was a huge success. After losing their first two matches- to AAA D10 finalist Warren and Conneaut- the team won 11 matches in a row including  5 set victory over AAA Meadville. Senior’s Lakota Donaldson and Tayler Elchynski led the team to the Region championship match and D10 finals against North East. The season ended in the first round of the PIAA state playoffs against number 1 ranked Freeport.”

Coach Goodsel said how proud he was of all the individual improvement and team accomplishment this season.
