LREOY\u00a0\u2014 When Pine River\u2019s volleyball season ended recently, several seniors said goodbye to the program, including defensive specialist Livy Vanderhoof, who was among the Bucks\u2019 key players. This marked the second year of volleyball for Vanderhoof. The season ended in a 3-0 loss to eventual district champion Morley Stanwood during the postseason. \u201cWe played with a lot of intensity,\u201d Vanderhoof said. \u201cWe started off kind of slow, then we did a good job of picking ourselves up. We played with a lot of heart and with a lot of intensity that we struggled (with) throughout the season. I\u2019m glad with that. We made a lot of progress.\u201d Highlights included the team\u2019s performance during the Highland Conference tournament. \u201cWe played with so much intensity and so much heart,\u201d Vanderhoof recalled. \u201cUltimately, that\u2019s what we remembered.\u201d Vanderhoof played back row for the Bucks. \u201cI think I improved a lot,\u201d she said. \u201cI became more vocal and was pumping up my teammates.\u201d Vanderhoof focused on passing and serving for the Bucks. She felt she had a strong serving season, especially when it came to \u201cspotting it.\u201d She focused only on volleyball this season and the match against Morley Stanwood marked the end of her high school career.
