Winning is a good feeling, but it passes and what lasts is what you have learned and the great memories you have made. Winning is not the point. Wanting to win is the point. Working to win is the point. Not giving up is the point. Never being satisfied with what you have done is the point. Wanting to learn, grow, and improve is the point. Always making your best effort is the point.

BOYS VOLLEYBALL: Midlakes wins 2023 Class B2 Sectional Title


The top-seeded Midlakes boys volleyball team defeated No. 3-seed Pavilion/York Golden Gophers in straight sets to claim the Class B2 Sectional championship.

The win was the team’s first title since 2019, and its 11th under Head Coach Kyle Salisbury.

“I have been on a lot of sports teams, and I’ve always wanted to win a sectional title,” said Kyle Kumkey, a senior on the team. “It’s a great group of guys and I’m excited to win it with them.”

Midlakes won 25-18, 25-17, and 25-22. The Screaming Eagles also swept Wayne in straight sets in the semifinal versus Wayne.

“Everyone does a great job in what they do,” said senior capital Brady Day.

Day was named tournament MVP. Aiden Bryant and Kaiden Ranger were named to the All-Tournament team.

“They really hold this team together, and we kind of just get on their back and let them go,” Kumkey said. “This team came together because it has such a great bond on and off the court. We still work as a team and do what we need to do to get it done.

“I’m happy we won and I’m happy to go celebrate with the guys now.”

Girls Volleyball Wins C1 Title

NOV. 7, 2022 — The Midlakes girls volleyball team defeated top-seeded Aquinas Institute in a back-and-forth match for the Class C1 Championship that featured a huge swing in the closing sets to bring the Screaming Eagles its first sectional title since 2014.

Already down 2-1, Midlakes found itself trailing 16-12 in the fourth set when it sparked a six-point rally to take the lead and eventually the set, 25-20. The Screaming Eagles kept up the pressure to win the fifth set, 15-13, and the sectional title.

"I told them we haven't taken a team to five sets all year,” said senior co-captain Callie Walker. "It's gotta be this team. This is not going to be our last game. It might be a fight, but let’s take them to five."

Third-year head coach Matt Marchaesi led the No. 2-seeded Screaming Eagles into the championship game after finishing the regular season 14-7 and then defeating Bath-Haverling and Wellsville in sectionals.

"Our team is such a fun team to coach," Marchaesi said. "We definitely improved. We got more skill, but our mental game is so much stronger. We can come back. We can work together and that is the biggest piece this year."

Senior libero and co-captain Nauvoo Dorr was named tournament MVP. Hanna Godkin, Midlakes third co-captain, was named to the All-Tournament team along with senior Kayla Nurse.

Nurse said a key to the game was simply trying to stay positive and keeping their energy, even when it looked bleak.

"We did it. We made it," Nurse said after the game. "This team is my second family. I just really love them so much … It's not over yet."
