The Mount Airy volleyball team honored seven seniors prior to Thursday’s match against Alleghany.
The Bears’ senior class includes: Emma Hawks, Calissa Watson, Paxton Reece, Gracie Butcher, Amelia Radford, Sofia Stafford and Kylie Hollingsworth.
The seniors helped Mount Airy finish the season strong with a 3-0 win over the visiting Trojans, with set scores of 27-25, 25-20 and 25-19. The win redeemed a conference loss to Alleghany earlier in the season.
