“Dennis was just too much on senior night, as she was virtually unstoppable,” coach Jackie Carel said. “Our girls just kept feeding Dennis the assists.”

Hannah Morris and Katie Holland each had 23 assists during the course of that match.

“Balance like that is an exciting element to me as a coach, because it means that we are showing great teamwork and support by putting up numbers like that,” Carel said.

Dennis wasn’t the only senior to shine, as Colyer had nine kills.

No matter what happened Tuesday, EHS will finish in third place with either a 7-3 or a 6-4 mark.
