Yesterday, September 12, 2016, both the Varsity Volleyball and Varsity Soccer teams beat Friends Seminary. The teams worked together, kept positive mindsets, and played great games.

The Varsity Volleyball team beat Friends Seminary 5-3. The Hewitt athletes had great passes, dove for every single ball, and were always on their feet. Although some of the sets came extremely close, they put their all into every set. The crowd was at the edge of the bleachers supporting the hawks. Only six girls play at a time, but that didn’t stop the rest of the team from cheering their loudest to show support for their teammates. Dr. Kinsey, other faculty members, and parents were watching the extremely exciting game. This was their first win of the season, and they plan on keeping up the hard work! Students and faculty cannot wait for the upcoming season.
