Ava is a very committed athlete who shows up every day to practice ready to work and leads quietly by example. Her confidence grew throughout the season. In the month of August, Ava earned sixteen serve aces and twenty-six digs in five games. She is one of our team captains for the junior varsity team.

Congratulations, Ava! - Coach Cassel

Sarah contributed 125 digs (13.8 digs per match) and 65 serves receive in the month of August (9 games).
