On 9/25, the girls varsity volleyball took on Avon for Bridget Night. With a huge crowd and a new excitement for the program, the Artesians were able to take a set off a Class 4A #3 team in the state. However, Avon got the best of Martinsville in 4 sets, but not without a fight. Mackenzie Martin had 2 aces and 8 kills. Marlayna Kemp added 10 kills of her own while Erin Kresse gave the Artesians 9. Sydney Lyon had 23 digs while Grace Reynolds put up 34 assists. Ella Whitney finished the night with 3 blocks.
The game was exciting and loud, but more importantly it was for Bridget. All proceeds going to her and her family as she battles Hodgkin’s Lymphoma for the 2nd time. Many people fought back tears as Bridget was honored in center court prior to the game.
