During a Senior Night pregame ceremony, Houlihan had her uniform No. 2 retired by Blue Ridge for being the first, first-team all-state athlete in school history. Then, she went out and contributed eight kills to help the Lady Raiders record a three-game sweep of Abington Heights, 25-17, 25-17, 25-21, clinch its first Lackawanna League volleyball title since 2007 and earn the No. 1 seed for the upcoming District 2 Class 1A playoffs.AOWHOULIHAN
Here’s more from her interview:

Any significance to wearing the No. 2? Not really. That was just the number I picked. I wore it all four years. It was good to me.
Did you know the school was going to retire your number? I had no idea. On Senior Night, they just did it. It (the number) was behind a piece of paper and they just pulled it. It was a shocker.

What do you see as your role on the team? I try to be a leader. We all get down at times, but I think I try to pick everyone back up when they need to be.

How did you get interested in playing volleyball? When I was in fourth grade, they had this little club thing. My parents thought I’d be good at it, so I went out for it and that was that.
I’ve played four years in high school. I sat on the bench for varsity my freshman year. But I’ve started for the past three years.
What position do you play? Outside hitter. Any key to playing the position? It’s all a mind game. If you get yourself down, get in your own head, you’re going to make mistakes. But if you stay up and positive, it helps out.
