Senior Addison Chenvert celebrates with her team during their last regular season game Oct. 17. Park suffered a 1-3 loss to Chaska.

Park’s girls volleyball team lost a close game against Chaska on senior night Oct. 17. They had hoped to end the regular season on a high note leading into sections but came up short 3-1.

According to head coach Sam Hanlon, the team needs to focus on skills they were lacking in the game against Chaska before sections begin. She said she wants to push the girls before sections.

“We’re gonna practice the next four or five days and really practice hard,” Hanlon said. “Make sure that we’re correcting things that we’re lacking in right now and be prepared when we get to sections.”

Sophomore Ella Weingart said the team lacked some key communication during the game. 

“We played hard,” Weingart said. “We should have had some more communication and had some better shots.”

According to Hanlon, it was good to see the girls fight until the end and have a close, hard fought game against Chaska.

“We had some really good moments,” Hanlon said. “We had some moments we know we can fix but it was nice to play a close game against Chaska.”

Junior Amara Schroeder said that their season goal was to win 15 games but the team hoped to win more.

“We wanted to win over 15 games and we reached that goal,” Schroeder said. “We definitely should have won more games but we reached our expectations.”

Weingart said the team is going to work on communicating more in practice. 

“We want to practice hard so we play hard and use communication to help each other out and play more as a team,” Weingart said.

According to Schroeder, the seniors had an impact on the team’s performance this season.

“(The seniors) were a big positive for our team,” Schroeder said. “They encouraged a lot of people this year and they constantly worked hard in practice and stepped up on the court.” 

Park’s next game will be the first round of sections. Time and location are still to be determined.
