“The girls were just ready to play tonight,” said Lisa Berry, River View Jr. High Eighth Grade Volleyball Coach. “On Saturday they played two great games and won and this evening they played another tremendous game. They not only played smart but they all played hard and with true heart. It has been a really fun season. This group of girls are really talented athletes, it’s going to be fun to watch them continue to play and get better. This group of girls won the ECOL league in seventh grade and again now as eighth graders. Two years in a row! Says a lot and I couldn’t be prouder of all 12 of them! They really pulled it all together this evening and this past weekend and truly were unstoppable.”
