What a week for Raymore-Peculiar volleyball!
Early in the week, the Lady Panthers competed in the District Playoffs. They played Lee’s Summit Tigers in the semi-finals round. The Panthers beat the Tigers 2-1, to advance to the finals.
In the District Finals, the Panthers took on Sion. They quickly knocked them off in two matches. This victory made the Ray-Pec Panthers the District Champions, for the first time since 1986. When asked how he was feeling,
Coach Joe Maloney, who has been at Ray-Pec for two years, said, “Awesome! What I love about what took place is how these kids played as a team. Teams compete. Teams win. “
Coach Maloney also credits the seven seniors on the team for getting this far, “The Senior Leadership helped make this happen.” These seven seniors were featured last week during Seniors Night: Sydney Ross, Haley Tutorino, Meghan Maher, Shelby Parker, Alyssa Shaffer, Hannah Mast and Alyssa Folkers.
The Lady Panthers competed in the Regional Playoffs this past weekend. They defeated Blues Springs 2-0 to advance. They met St. Teresa’s Stars in the finals and lost 2-0.
Congratulations to the Lady Panthers for an eventful season!
