WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Northwest volleyball hit the ground running this season, off to an undefeated start and ranked 6th in Class 6A all while facing some of the area’s top teams.

“It feels good, especially coming out underrated,” junior Daetyn Bogle said. " A lot of teams underestimated what we had going on over here.”

The Grizzlies share a bond unlike any other.

“At the end of the day, we have a different kind of love,” senior Caiya Stucky said. “It’s kind of cliche, you hear teams talk about being a family, in this case we really are a family, and we have that bond by blood.”

Northwest has not only one, but two sets of sisters on the court. Senior Caiya and sophomore Camdyn Stucky are in their final season playing together in blue and gold.

“Sometimes I am not motivated to come in the gym every day, that is just how volleyball is,” Camdyn said. “Knowing I only have a limited time with her it really makes me want to cherish every moment we get in the gym together.”

“To have this year with my sister is really cool,” Caiya said. “Obviously, the success is a plus but the quality time we get together is pretty cool.”

As juniors, Brailee and Daetyn Bogle have another season left, but are focused on making the most of this one.

“It makes the games a lot less stressful,” Daetyn said. “When they are stressful you have someone to lean on and get you out of your head.”

Together they’ll look to bring home the program’s first city league title in more than a decade.

“It just makes you feel more confident, your sister is always going to be your biggest supporter,” Brailee said. “You know no matter how you play whether it’s the worst game of your life or the best game of your life you will always have someone that is going to back you and is proud of what you are doing.”
