Stillwater volleyball back at state thanks to seniors


PERKINS, Okla. —

While Webber rarely doubts his players’ abilities, it’s that doubt that has brought this group so close together. It’s also why the Lady Pioneers think they can knock off the top-ranked team in Class 6A.

“It helps boost our confidence,” Geer said. “We can show someone more than what they thought we could. It’s making a statement for Stillwater High.”

“We’re pretty excited,” Carpenter said. “We have a lot of confidence in ourselves. We’re not cocky, but we have a lot of confidence in the skills that we have and the teamwork that we have.”

Even as the four senior enter their final two days on a volleyball court together, years down the road those memories and the bond they share — not only with each other, but also the other members of the team — will continue to linger.

And while they may all come from different personalities and backgrounds, the four seniors are hoping at least for one final encore performance Friday.

“I’m definitely going to take regionals with me,” Ireton said. “It’s something I’ll never forget.”

“Those hugs after regionals were pretty fun,” Carpenter said.

“I’m just going to (remember) how well we’ve work together and how we’ve became so close,” Geer said. “It’s the closest I’ve been with any set of girls on my teams.”
