The Miracle Season

Emma Ludwig, Media Staff

The Miracle Season is a movie based on the true story of the West Trojans of Iowa City volleyball team. The team had already won one championship and was continuing their second when tragedy struck. Their setter, a popular, charismatic girl, was killed in a automobile accident. Caroline Found was a perfect representation of dedication and was often a leader to her teammates. As a result, her team felt like they couldn’t continue the season without her. Each player faced different challenges they had to overcome in order to achieve a successful season. Instead of giving up, they worked even harder to honor Caroline and use their pain to win games. This movie is sentimental and uses some religious references to explain the girls’ hard work. It promotes the values of perseverance and never giving up. This can be relatable to any person who has experienced loss or defeat and is a enjoyable, feel-good movie.
