Weston's girls' volleyball team got all the way to the Class M state tournament semifinals as the No. 12 seed, defeating No. 21 Sheehan and No. 5 Woodland each by 3-1 scores, then topping No. 4 Jonathan Law 3-0.
Then came a semifinal-round test with top-seed Seymour on November 19. The Wildcats fell 3-0 (25-15, 25-18 25-12), ending a strong season that included a 13-6 regular-slate mark.
Against Seymour, the Trojans held a lead midway through game two. After falling behind 18-13 Weston scored four straight points, including one on an ace from Kate Anderson, who also was strong at the net throughout the match, to pull to within 18-17. But Seymour finished on a 7-1 run to seize control of the match before putting things away in the third game.
Anderson, Kelly Rosemann, Leia Pinals, Kate Joyce, Aimee Bunkoci, Sydney Lyon and Natalie Shreder worked hard to keep things close in the middle game before Seymour took over.
One of the highlights of the season for Weston was a regular-season 3-0 win over Joel Barlow, the eventual SWC champ for the eighth time in a row, avenging an earlier-season loss to the Falcons.
