The volleyball team’s season concluded in their 5A regional quarterfinal match against Gregory-Portland at Ray High School on Nov. 7.

The game went a full five sets, with both teams splitting the first four. G-P was able to squeak out a 15-12 victory in the final set thanks in part to a 4-0 run to take a 13-10 lead. Senior Sierra Howe led the team with 17 kills and freshman Cali Nims tallied five aces.

Coach Kara Wallace said that the team took a different approach when it came to preparing for this game.

“We watched film, and we tried to evenly match up our players against their players,” she said. The team has changed in many ways since the beginning of the season.

“(At the end of the year) we were able to play together better as a team, we talked a lot more, and we had the will to prepare to win,” Wallace said.

According to Wallace, the key component to the team’s success was their unity.

“They all got along and were able to help and push each other on the court,” she said.

The team fed off each other’s energy “like one iron sharpens another,” Wallace said.

Throughout the season, players were able to overcome obstacles and continue their playoff push.

“They learned to be confident in themselves, and realize that they were talented,” Wallace said.

Junior Hayle Campbell and the rest of the team were able to bond during the season through team dinners and at practice.

“Me and my teammates would try to make the practice exciting and encourage one another,” Campbell said.

Campbell’s goals were to improve her overall game, play well in district, and for the team make it far into the playoffs.  

These goals came to fruition as the team was able to keep their season going longer than most Coastal Bend teams. Every player, including Campbell, played a crucial role in their success.
