West Po Volleyball heads to the Region Quarterfinals tonight. The Senior Class and their families are pictured here.

Last night West Potomac Varsity Girls Volleyball defeated Lewis in three straight sets to advance to tonight’s Region quarter-final at Thomas Jefferson High School at 6:30 p.m.

Recently, the team held their senior night where West Po defeated Robinson in three straight sets to win the seniors’ last-ever high school regular season game, leading them to a record of 9-9 going into playoffs. 

On senior night members of the community came together to celebrate all the time and effort the seniors have put into volleyball over the years at the Black Out volleyball game to represent the colors of the senior class and give thanks to all the seniors. The freshman and junior varsity teams lined up at the entrance and laid on the ground tapping to celebrate the seniors entrance for their final game of the regular season. 

“[It felt] really surreal,” Reagan Dronen, a senior, said describing her last night. “[I was] crying, other people [seniors] were crying.”

Each senior got a big basket full of goodies, including candles, flowers and photo albums for the seniors. The underclassmen set up food and decorated for the seniors. It was a very emotional night for the families of the senior players who have taken so much time over the years to watch their daughters play the sport they love. 

“Last year when I was watching the seniors doing it [celebrating senior night] it was different than this year” Reagan said reflecting on her experiences with watching the other seniors on senior night.  

The team is still playing in the tournament, but the end of the season has led many seniors to think about their West Potomac journeys, “I’m not a senior, this is fake,” Reagan said reflecting on her years at West Po.
