Webster’s Ava Washburn goes skyward for a big kill.

One of the final West Lakeland Conference volleyball matches of the regular season took place on Thursday Oct. 14th at Webster, as the Webster Tigers hosted the Siren Dragons for a conference match. 

The Dragons came into the matchup with an 0-12 overall record, and 0-8 in Lakeland Conference play. The Webster Tigers came into the contest with a 16-9 record, with a 4-4 record in West Lakeland play. 

The game also had some special background as it was not only Webster senior night, but also the annual ‘Dig Pink’ night to raise breast cancer awareness.
