Coach speak

“Our week this past week was not for the faint of heart. We could not have faced any better competition. Certainly, we were disappointed in dropping such a close match to Hoover because we knew we should have won 3-0. But our team truly grew from that disappointment because we competed the hardest I have ever seen us compete this weekend in Lexington at the Kentucky Challenge. It was the best tourney we have played in, got challenged every match and walked away 4-1 and a solid 5th place finish. We need to get back in the gym though and fine tune a few details and work on our sense of urgency before our matches this week. Loved our toughness, loved our grit. I still believe our best volleyball is ahead.” – Girls volleyball head coach Judy Green
