The Bellwood Antis Lady Blue Devils volleyball team had a successful regular season to say the least, finishing the season with a 15-3 record, and the sixth seed in the District 6 2A playoffs.

However, even though B-A was the sixth seed, the Lady Devils were upset by No. 11 Forest Fills last night  at home in three straight sets, losing by scores of, 25-20, 25-17, and 25-23.

Bellwood was playing without starting setter Sydney Lechner and starting outside hitter Bella Kies.

B-A sophomore Sicily Yingling stepped in for the injured  Lechner, and had seven service points and 16 assists. Sakeria Haralson also collected eight kills, six blocks and nine digs.

Sports seasons eventually come to an end, and this one is no different.  But for the Lady Devils, this season was not a failure.

“This season couldn’t have gone better.  We have all grown and learned so much from each other.  We worked extremely hard this year to achieve everything we have.  The loss we took last night, I am sad to say our season is over, but we never gave up hope, and never stopped fighting.  I couldn’t be prouder of my girls,” said Senior Kaelynn Behrens.
