Volleyball squad beats Cedarcrest 3-0 on senior night

South Whidbey volleyball seniors Bailey and Courtney Todd didn’t want the match to end.

It was senior night, and the Falcons were just a few points away from beating Cedarcrest in three sets. The twin sisters watched the scoreboard incredulously as it came closer and closer to 25 points.

But, end it did — the Falcons won 3-0.

“It’s bittersweet,” Courtney Todd said. “It’s our last home game, it’s our last time playing in this game. We don’t play any other sports.”

“It’s sweet because at least I got to spend it with my twin and I got to spend it with my best friends,” she added.

The senior class includes the Todds, Sophia Nielsen, Rebekah Merrow, Kolby Heggenes and Megan Miller.

The Falcons (9-4 overall, 7-4 in the Cascade Conference) are the second seeded team heading into the class 1A District Championships on Oct. 28-31 at King’s High School. South Whidbey’s only losses this season have been to King’s (10-1 overall, 12-1 in league) and Archbishop Murphy (13-1 overall, 10-1 in league), while they’ve swept every other opponent.

Bailey Todd said she was sad following the match, but is optimistic about the postseason. She also added that she’s played with the senior class for the past six years and their bonds should help them find more success this weekend.

“I think we’re all really good friends and that really helps with chemistry,” Todd said.
