“Our four seniors had a great senior night,” Lakeland coach Kelsie Badger said. “It was an emotional night but we were able to stay pretty level and work through the emotions.

Ella and Liv were able to mix up the sets and all our hitters did a good job putting the ball away with our senior outside hitter, Addie Raebel, leading the team in kills. Ellie Carlson was on fire picking up some tough hits and Kenna helping the team with blocks. Emily served aggressively, keeping them scrambling to get a good pass.”
