On November 2, the Waunakee volleyball team took a hit with a close loss to Sun Prairie in their Sectional Final match. 

With Sun Prairie’s gym packed with rowdy Cardinal and Warrior fans, the competitive, back and forth match began. 

Sun Prairie took the first game, winning 26-24. Down 0-1, Waunakee bounced back tying the Cardinals with a Game 2 win and then leading with a Game 3 win.

“It was rewarding to see [Sun Prairie] struggle against us,” said junior Megan Johnson.

Despite having momentum, the Warriors lost in Game 4. Then, Sun Prairie went on to win Game 5, earning their ticket to State.

“We played our best against Sun Prairie,” said Johnson.

Following the 2018 season after losing valuable players, the Warriors made it further in the postseason than expected.

Overall, Waunakee had a successful season, finishing first in the Badger North Conference and with a final record of 38-6.

“I thought this was a great season,” said Johnson. “I thought this season was so memorable. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”
