On Saturday Nov. 9, EOU’s women’s volleyball team dominated in their final home game of the school year. Determination and smiles were shared amongst the players as they gave their all against Northwest Christian University.

The EOU girls won three out of five games, earning them the victory. But this victory is bittersweet as they say farewell to three senior players.

Katie Keeney of Boise, Idaho, Karly Stack of Asquith, Saskatchewan, Canada, and Taylor Stewart of Priest River, Idaho, played their final home game and celebrated a victory with their teammates.

The three seniors have played volleyball for more than ten years each, beginning competitively in middle school. All three have seen growth in the EOU women’s team in dedication and talent.

“We’ve been here four years and that’s a long time together,” said Keeney. “This team is the most cohesive chemistry wise, on the court and in talent.” Stack and Stewart agreed with Keeney.

With flyers, posters and cheers, EOU thanked these three seniors for their hard work and dedication.

The lady Mountaineers return to the court on Nov. 15 in Caldwell, Idaho as part of the Cascade Collegiate Conference Tournament.
