After a long season, the Wildcats went out on top winning its last two games at home.
McNeese was the Wildcats first opponent, and they beat them in straight sets to start its winning weekend.
Sofia Resendiz, senior labero, said that the mentality going into this weekend was to win no matter what.
“We had a winning mentality for sure this weekend, we all committed to each other and the coaches to stay tough and win at all costs,” Resendiz said. “We knew to do that we had to control our side and stay consistent in the little things on blocking and defense.”
Staying consistent is just what they did. In the first set the Wildcats won 25-16, and won the second and third set, 25-22.
Junior middle blocker, Lorin McNeil lead the Wildcats with 13 kills and four blocks, Madison Rohre, sophomore setter lead the team with 39 assists and senior outside hitter, Eighmy Dobbins lead the team with 15 digs.
The second and final game for the Wildcats this year was against Lamar.
Lamar came out hot and started off the game with a 21-17 win in the first set and a 25-23 win in the second set, but the Wildcats were not done. They responded to Lamar with a 25-23 win in the third set, a 25-10 win in the fourth set and to break the tie, a 15-12 win in the fifth set.
Not only was that the last game of the year but it was the last game ever for the seven seniors, Makenzie Kesler, Marybeth Sandercox, Eighmy Dobbins, Courtney Miller, Kennedy Shelstead, Peyten Boutwell and Sofia Resendiz.
Resendiz has been a Wildcat all four years and said that her favorite memory of the season was the grit and grind of this weekend.
“My favorite memory would have to be this Saturday against Lamar because it was senior day and my last day to play in moody ever,” Resendiz said. “To be able to go out on a win and in 5 sets was truly my favorite memory this season. I’m really going to miss the girls and the competitive work ethic we all have together because we truly never stopped working hard this season no matter the circumstance and that is something unique about this years team. I have learned a lot by being on this team and am so so thankful to have been apart such a unique program.”
The Wildcats are not eligible for the Southland Conference tournament, but finished the season in 10th place.
