Warriors sneak into playoffs
WLC showed signs of promise this year, but ultimately struggled, finishing with a 6-10 record. After a four-game losing streak to open the season, the Warriors won five in a row; that streak is basically what got them into the playoffs, as they finished the year on a 1-6 skid.
As the 15th seed, WLC is tasked with facing almost-unstoppable Sunapee. The Lakers beat the Warriors once already this season on their way to a 15-1 finish.
Key players: Junior Rachel Graves has a killer serve and senior Kayla Barnes is excellent at setting up her teammates at the net. Freshmen Amber Goodwin burst onto the scene this year in a big way.
