Varsity Volleyball closes the season
with Consolation Championship

Our Varsity Volleyball team finished up their season with a Consolation Championship at the Texas Christian Athletic League State Tournament in Frisco, Texas.

We started the tournament with a very tough loss to Atonement Academy from San Antonio. We had a difficult time finding a rhythm and getting serves over. The next day, we played district rival The Oaks and won in four sets. That put us in the consolation game against King's Academy from Tyler, Texas. We were able to make some big plays early on in each match and won in three sets.

This team worked very hard this season and exceeded expectations beyond my imagination. We have a very young squad, and I am excited about the future of our program. These young ladies give it their all, and I could not have asked them for anything more. I want to thank our Woods family again for all of your support and we look forward to seeing you next fall!

Go Wildcats!
