In recent matches, the girls on this team have not only won the matches, they are defeating their rivals in all of the sets they are playing. It began with a major come-back against Lawrence Woodmere. Then, the girls swept all three sets against Lexington. Two days later, the girls did it again, winning all three matches against Kew Forest. Some of the most recent highlights have included impressive dives from Cass Curtin, and Elaine Ma. Olivea Hope is deadly with those hard hits. And Amy Adams and Diana Li have come through with the game winning serves! Victory is sweet. But what is even sweeter is the team spirit and sportsmanship that is displayed by all Knox Falcons players. Coach Towns, the Director of Athletics, made a touching statement at the community morning meeting last week, saying that Knox Athletes are making a positive impression on the schools they are visiting.

These are the statements that make the faculty and staff of the School most proud. Win or lose, it's how you conduct yourselves that matters the most.
