Senior Madison Anderson started it this off-season when she said her goal, and the team’s goal, was to win a CIF championship and she ended it Friday night with the final kill in the fifth game of the championship match. And when she scored it, the bench erupted and the players ran around the court, arms up, screaming, elated, looking for the nearest player to hug. It was the end of the season and it ended on the biggest win of their volleyball careers and after the award ceremony, everyone, from players to coaches to family to friends, stayed in that gym, talking to one another, sharing the moment, until the lights were shut off and security ushered people outside.
