The Calais Lady Blue Devil volleyball team had an exceptionally brilliant season in the State Class B volleyball Division. They led the heal points for nearly the entire season ending the season with 153.9-points and their nearest rival for the #1 slot was Washington Academy sporting 101.8-points. The team’s lone lost match came at the hands of Class A MDI on Saturday, September 10 when the hosts swept Calais 3-0. Other than a 1-game loss to Bucksport, Calais went on to win all their remaining 15-matches with 3-0 shutouts, including playoffs! 

Starting in the quarter-final playoffs Calais took a 3-0 shutout against Machias, a 3-0 shutout in the semi-finals against Woodland, and completed the perfect run with a 3-0 shutout in the State Class B championship at MDI against the Lady Raiders from Washington Academy. In the three playoff matches the Lady Dragons from Woodland gave them the best run ending two games by close 25-22 and 25-21 spreads.
