Tough Schedule Paying Off For McFarland Volleyball

After playing in several invites during the season, as well as in the tough Rock Valley Conference, McFarland has pushed through to the sectional round of the playoffs as experience is paying off for the resilient Spartans.

Successful showings in the UW-Whitewater, DeForest, Baraboo, and Lodi invites, and a current nine-match winning streak, has resulted thus far in a regional championship. Now, they get ready for another tough playoff match-up with Edgewood, who like McFarland won their regional final 3-2. Coach Trish Fortune discusses the team, this year's leaders and experience, and what playing in a volleyball hotbed like the greater Madison area does for the numbers in a program.
