The Lady Badger Volleyball team played Gatesville at home Oct. 12 on senior night, at Glen Rose Oct. 15 and at home against Brownwood Tuesday. They lost all three in three sets, and despite this year being one of their most winning seasons, this will end their chances of moving forward to playoffs. 

 The Lady Badgers have a record of 12-26 and 0-7 in district. 

“I think we got put in one of the hardest districts possible,” senior Juliana Dwamena said. “However, we never let that determine how we played. We fought as hard as we could with a new program, coach and team, and paved the road for years to come for Lampasas volleyball.” 

The seniors walked with their parents across the court and received gifts from the younger players on senior night. 

“I’m happy to see where the next chapter of my life takes me,” Dwamena said. “I’m sad of what I’ll miss, but I’m content with what I have been given.” 

Senior Hadley Oncken transferred to Lampasas the summer before the school year began. As a new player to the lady Badgers, she has now grown as  part of the Badger family. 

“Playing with a new team was very exciting for me,” Oncken said. “I enjoy meeting new people although I’ve met many of them through social media or small interactions when I came to visit my cousin. Our relationships since two-a-days quickly grew from acquaintances to family. I will forever cherish this team and Coach Wiley for all the hard work we’ve put in and the footprints we’ve left behind for future varsity teams.”

As the season comes to an end, the Lady Badgers will play their final game Oct. 22 against Stephenville at home. Dwamena will be out with a knee injury from the game Tuesday. 

“They’re a welcoming, hardworking group, ” coach Jessica Harborth said. “I’m excited to see what they can do.”
