The All-Big Eight Conference volleyball team has been named, and conference champion Jasper had three players named to the team with seniors Elisabeth Ahlbrand and Rachel Sternberg and junior Teyah Leinenbach.
The emotions portrayed by the Jasper volleyball team were all so jumbled, almost contradictory, induced by a season’s conclusion the Wildcats knew could just have easily been a continuance instead. If only for a point, a hit, an inch.
The Jasper volleyball team knew a rally from two sets down could be accomplished. Still, when the comeback was complete — with a manic overtime fifth set, to boot, in Evansville Memorial’s toasty gym that grew hotter each set — all of it was almost too flabbergasting to believe.
