The FHN volleyball won first in their conference. They are playing their first Districts game against EGR here at FHN on October 31st.

“We hope to make it to states this year, possibly win. We have a hard road though. Districts are going to be really hard. We’re just going to keep working and see how far we get,” said junior setter and team captain Parker Kwiatkowski.

The Huskies have had a lot of success this year in the conference season. They finished the season undefeated, as conference champs.

“I would say that this season we’ve had lot of potential building up. We have had a lot of successes and learning opportunities,” said the team’s coach, Cailie Schultz. “For the most part, we’ve done well, and we hope to continue to build that for the rest of the season.”

They have a strong team, with five seniors, as well as several juniors and sophomores. The team has a few D1 recruits and prospects, and even more of the players are committing to other colleges.

“We’re much stronger than we have been in past years. We have been a young team in the past, but now we are older and a much stronger team than before,” said Parker Kwiatkowski.

Rockford High School, ranked first in the state, is in their districts group.  “I hope that we can really pull out a good win to send us off to the finals. We’re the underdog going into playing Rockford, and I hope we can win and just work as a team as we have been doing,” said senior team captain Mae Barrington.

The team is definitely a force to reckon with. They have a very strong group of girls this year, and along with a skilled coach, they are focused on being the best they can be. They work very well together, and have focused on bonding as a team this year.

“I would say that our team is very strong. I would put us in the ring with anybody at this point,” said coach Cailie Schultz. “We’ve continued to improve, and I’m really excited about where we can be. Our strength is definitely our offense, we have a lot of big hitters. Over all, we have a pretty balanced team.”

Update: Unfortunately, the Huskies lost to EGR in three sets on Tuesday night. They fought hard, but couldn’t pull out the win. Thanks to all who came out to support your volleyball team. Better luck next year.
