For the Mustangs it was senior night, the last home game for the Mustangs, a night for the community to say goodbye to all the seniors that have dedicated their time and hard work to the sport of volleyball. These seniors are Olivia Lippman, Kinsey Phipps, Regan Olson, Kenzie Johnson and Madison Foster.

The night looked rough for the girls’ volleyball team as the night ended the Comets came out on top winning 3-0 in matches, however the Mustangs played stronger than ever despite this. As the first set began, the Mustangs kept up and put up a fight against the Comets, but the Mustangs lost 25-13. Then came the next set as they attempted to turn the night in their favor, however again the Comets came out on top, the Mustangs lost 25-14. Finally as the last set of the night for the Mustangs, the Comets came out on top ahead again, 25-13. One may see the the night as a slump for the lady Stangs, but one needs to keep in mind that the North Polk Comets have a impressive 21-15 record. Leading the night in kills was Olson with a striking seven kills.

Then on Oct. 14, the Mustangs traveled to Fairfield. The Stang’s faced off against Davis County and lost both matches 25-20 and 25-12.

Then they went against the host of the meet, the Fairfield Trojans. The Trojans came out on top this time winning both matches, the first, 25-14, and the next 25-9.

Finally, the Mustangs went up against the Centerville Redettes. The Stangs played well, as they shut the Redettes down. The first set went in the Mustangs favor, it was close but the Stangs won, 25-18. Then they went on to finish off Centerville in the second match 25-17, sealing their final victory of the night.
