“We played really good volleyball today. Throughout the day all 13
girls on the team were able to contribute both on and off the court.
We played with relentless pursuit on defense and went aggressive after
our attack offensively. I am most proud of the fact that we created a
game plan for success in a few of our bigger matches today and the
girls were able to execute that game plan perfectly. It’s October,
we’ve stepped up our game and I look forward to watching these girls
continue to progress over the next 5 weeks leading into districts.” – Coach Bre Johnson
