While the final contest did not go in favor of the Apalachee High School volleyball team, Tuesday’s result does not change the overall success level enjoyed by the Lady Wildcats in 2012.
AHS fell to Northgate in the second round of the AAAAA playoffs Tuesday in three games (25-17, 25-16, 25-12). The Lady Wildcats finished the season with almost 40 wins and an area championship, both in the regular season and the area tournament.
“We had to move our lineup around some today,” AHS coach Joey Alfonso said. “We were out of sorts. We had a player who was sick and couldn’t be at school, so she wasn’t able to play. We had people playing out of position. We fought hard, but we were battling some nerves as well.”
