Bengal Beat: Fall Post-Season - High School
Volleyball (JV and Varsity)
Both squads had an excellent season, each making it to the PVAC Championship semifinals this past week. The JV team wrapped up the season strong against Model Secondary School, going 2-1 against the eventual PVAC champs. In the last regular season match, Varsity Bengals bested McLean's Mustangs (3-1), with stellar serving by Sienna M. '24, Lucy M. '24, and Lailah B. '25. Thanks to a high ranking, the team punched their ticket directly to the PVAC semifinals, where they concluded their season against Hebrew Academy (3-1). Shout-out to Sienna, Lucy, Niki P. '24, Erin R. '24, Marissa W. '24, and Mani Y. '24 on a superlative senior season!

'24, and Clara E. Z. '24. Your leadership will be greatly missed.
