Coming home still undefeated in the Downriver League, Warriors took on the Taylor Griffins for a Senior Night hometown crowd. The Warriors smashed Taylor with a score of 3-0 in the sets. 

In the first period, Warriors defeated Taylor in the beginning with Julia Downey dominating the floor with the first set ending with  a score of  25-12. 

As the second set came along, the Warriors came in strong, conquering them in the second set. Alaina Craig got a score off her first serve leading the first point in the set. Ella Thomas saved the ball with an astonishing dive, and Downey again smashed the ball.  Lindsey Marlewitz led with another point scored with a spike giving them the lead of 14-4. Junior Jalyla Martin smashed the ball for another point. 

The team finished off with a dominating score of 25-6, and the Warriors outplayed Taylor in the final set 25-13, sending Taylor home with a loss. 

It was also a big event for Woodhaven DECA, who took the opportunity to host a Pink Out. The event, run by DECA seniors Dawson Terry and Reagan Wheaton raised money for breast cancer research and brought attention to the cause. 

The Warriors moved on to post-season play, defeating Allen Park in a stunning upset and move on to the MHSAA District Semi-Finals Thursday November 3 at 7pm at Trenton High School.
