The Chrisman Lady Cardinals Volleyball regular season ended on October 20th. Not only was it the final home game, but the ladies honored their outgoing Seniors in Sequoyah Cook, Peyton Reasor, Autumn Baker and Reese Anderson.
The JV girls took the court first taking on the Lady Cornjerkers of Hoopeston. At one point in the first set, the ladies were up significantly, but the Lady Cornjerkers fought back to stun the Cardinals with the set win. The JV girls fought back to take the second and eventually the third set win.
In between games, the Seniors were given gifts from their parents as well as team mates. When the girls ran through the banner, they were prepared to have the final victory on their home court.
Hoopeston, however, had other plans. The Lady Cornjerkers took the first set win (15-25), but the Lady Cards battled back to take the second set (25-18). In the third and final match winning set, the teams battled back and forth, but it was Hoopeston who came away with the win (13-25).
Brianna Barna had 1 kill, 1 ace and 10 assists. Asa Hoult had 1 ace and 6 digs. Reese Anderson had 5 kills, 4 blocks and 9 digs. Addison Phipps had 2 kills, 1 ace and 10 digs. Sequoyah Cook had 2 blocks and 9 digs. Autumn Baker had 6 digs. Peyton Reasor had 2 digs. Piper Knight had 2 kills, 2 aces and 8 digs.
The four Seniors honored were Sequoyah Cook, Autumn Baker, Reese Anderson and Peyton Reasor
Sequoyah Cook is the daughter of Amber and Joseph Cook. Cook has been playing Volleyball for seven years. Her favorite memory is every time they are together, herself and the team make awesome memories that easily become her new favorites.
“I want everyone to know that I, Sequoyah, am passing my legacy on to the freshman who will soon be blessed with the ability to shake their gluteus maximus as their superior senior role model once did,” Sequoyah said. “I want to say thank you to past and present teammates and sisters for all the great times together. And thank you to most of our past and present coaches, you will always hold a place in my heart for instilling within me the ability to play the sport that keeps me going and believing in me so that I could believe in myself, even when it seemed nearly impossible. I love you all!”
Autumn Baker is the daughter of Jennifer and Dustin Lorn and the late Justin Baker. Autumn has been playing volleyball for seven years. Baker’s favorite memory from volleyball is anything, but practice shorts day. There were many animals, tu-tu’s and pajama pants. Another memory is accidentally hitting the ref with the ball in his ‘inguinal region’. If he’s here tonight, sorry!
“I hope Abalynn (ab-a-lynn) finds someone else’s hair to pull, but not someone better than me,” Autumn said.
Peyton Reasor is the daughter of Matt and Missy Reasor. Peyton has been playing volleyball for seven years. Her favorite memory from volleyball is when they wore anything but athletic shorts to practice.
“I want the girls to know high school goes by fast, so enjoy it while it lasts, even the bad times,” Peyton said.
Reese Anderson is the daughter of Scott and Cindy Anderson. Reese has been playing volleyball for seven years. Her favorite memory from volleyball was watching Asa trip over a trashcan at one of their tournaments and half of the team peed their pants from laughing so hard. She also loved the practice that they wore anything but practice clothes to.
“I want to thank all the coaches who have helped me become the player I am today,” Reese said. “I also wish the best for the team next year and advise the younger girls to enjoy it while it lasts.”
