Last year Novi High School varsity volleyball lost their final game. They finished second. A great accomplishment, but still heart wrenching.
They learned lessons through losing. They learned about commitment, pressure, bouncing back, tenacity, grit, perseverance, and teamwork. But it still hurt.
Today was a different day.
Novi High School varsity volleyball is the state champion.
It is not often a team reaches the state championship two years in a row. It's also not often that a team gets to face the team that beat them the year before. But today Novi faced down that very same team. In winning today Novi showed they learned their lessons well.
Commitment, pressure, bouncing back, tenacity, grit, perseverance, and teamwork. The Wildcats learned their lessons well.
And today they are state champions!
