“I am so very proud of the season we have had.

Both McKenzie Woolston and Tessa Hoeing broke the previous record of aces in a season which was 58 and held by Shelbie Justice. McKenzie served 63 aces this season and Tessa served 61. Keely Springman had 469 assists this season which broke the previous record of 451 held since 2004 by Laura Liggett. Keragan Niehoff had 264 kills which broke the previous record of 249 held by Shelbie Justice.

“Coaching these girls has been such an honor and a pleasure. They are hard workers but more importantly, they are great people. They support each other on and off the court and really have fun together,” Coach Hearne added.
