With a global pandemic bringing the nation's sports to a complete halt at one point, many didn't know how this fall would look.

Slowly but surely a sense of normalcy has returned. For Second Baptist School, that came on September 15, when the women's volleyball team hosted Emery/Weiner.

"I'm so thankful for the Second Baptist School administration and all the hard work they have put in so we can have our season and have school on campus this fall," Second Baptist School senior Bailey Ireland '21 said adding, "I'm really grateful."


The Eagles swept the Jags 3-0 (25-16, 25-20, 25-22) for their first win of the season in September and concluded the first game played on the Second Baptist School campus since March.

"I'm very thankful that we are able to play," Second Baptist School volleyball coach Sue Berg said. "I really just wanted us to go out and play and have fun; coming out with a win was just icing on the cake for us."

When looking at this Eagles' volleyball team roster heading into the year, Berg didn't have the luxury of a large senior class to lean on. It is a 2021 group with two players.

There will be production and leadership from that group, but it is the Class of 2022 that dominates this roster.

"We are really cohesive. I have been with them since freshman year on varsity," Alexis Gill '22 said. "We are all working to help with leadership since we only have two seniors."
