The girls volleyball team’s successful season came to an end Tuesday night in the first round of the state playoffs with a 3-0 loss to State College.

The team ends the season with a WPIAL championship appearance, a section title, and a state playoff appearance.

“Overall, we had a really strong season with a lot of accomplishments,” senior Mackenzie Meis said. “We ended up surprising a lot of people.”

The team’s season is now over, ending the Baldwin careers of seniors Meis, Kerri Herron and Flannery Larson.

“It is awful thinking that this is the last time I will be playing for Baldwin,” Meis said. “I made so many memories with this team, and I have had so many experiences over the last four years that not many other WPIAL players have had.”

The team is looking forward to next season, with six starters coming back.

“I have a lot of confidence in this team next year, and I think if they keep the same mindset that they have now, they have an opportunity to be very successful next year,” Meis said.

The team finished its season 13-1 in section and 15-3 including playoffs.
