The Memorial varsity boys volleyball team had a very successful regular season this year, finishing with an overall record of 17 wins, 12 losses, and one tie. The Spartans played many top 10-caliber teams this season, such as Middleton, Germantown, Kaukauna, Kenosha Indian Trail, and Waukesha Catholic Memorial. In the Big 8 Conference, the Spartans finished 2nd in the regular season, and also 2nd in the conference tournament. In the regular season, the Spartans went 6-1, only dropping a match to Middleton, losing 3-0. They defeated every other team, besides Fort Atkinson, 3-0 (they defeated Fort 3-1). In the Big 8 Conference Tournament, held on Friday, October 18th at Middleton High School, Memorial defeated Beloit and La Follette easily before losing to Middleton in the championship. Now, Memorial shifts focus to the playoffs, where, as the 2 seed, they host La Follette on Friday October 25th at 5pm in round one of the playoffs. Round 2, versus either Kettle Moraine or Edgewood, will be on Tuesday, October 29th, and then the sectional final will be on Saturday, November 2nd at 4:30pm at Sun Prairie High School.
