The memorable run has come to an end for the Foxboro High volleyball team.
In their first MIAA Tournament game since 2012, the No. 11 seeded Warriors gave No. 6 Medfield all it could handle in the Division 2 Central Sectional first-round match on Friday, but ultimately came up short in a 3-2 defeat.
Medfield pulled out the decisive fifth set to advance to the second round following a 25-14, 25-18, 11-25, 22-25, 15-11 verdict over Foxboro.
“Honestly, we could’ve won,” Foxboro coach Vicki Santana said. “They fought back so hard. It was really the third set that was the turning point, we were just on fire.
Grace Boudreau led Foxboro with 10 kills, 11 digs, two blocks and four aces while teammate Emma Keefe had five aces, two kills and five digs. Shakirah Ketant added a pair of service aces to go with eight kills and three blocks at the net.
Pam Nelson and Grace Fortune had 11 digs apiece for the Foxboro back row while senior Maddie O’Brien had 19 assists and seven digs.
The visiting Warriors concluded their season 11-10.
“It was sad, but were just so proud of the season,” Santana said. “The girls were proud of themselves and I was proud of them. So, overall it was a good ending.”
