Petersburg’s varsity volleyball team won both its matches against Wrangell Friday and Saturday to close out the regular season.
The Vikings won a home match in three games Friday and then an away match in Wrangell Saturday by the same score.
After Friday’s match, the team recognized six seniors, Emma Chase, Chandler Strickland, Hana Newman, Kallie Caples, Abi Bennett and Sydney Guthrie. Cabral calls them a really special group.
“They stuck it through all the way from when I first started middle school to now,” he said. “Just a really fun group to be around. Very hard working crew that is very self-motivated. So that’s something to take note of them. They do a great job of grabbing the young ones and leading by example, which is something that I try to enforce to where, some teams have their freshmen do everything, oh you gotta carry the cooler, or you gotta carry the extension cord. I kind of flip it and I make the seniors do it because I want them to lead by example.”
The number two seeded Vikings open up the regional tournament in Craig Thursday December 1st at 10:45 a.m. against the seventh seed Skagway Panthers. The top two teams in the region will qualify for a berth in the state tournament.
