“Volleyball is one of the ultimate team sports and is unique in the sense that there is no one versus one person. We had a saying, ‘there is no great hit without a great set, and there is no great set without a great pass.’ The girls understood that they could not succeed without one another. It truly was an evolving experience for them as they grew spiritually and mentally as a team – as one body –  with several different roles – many callings. This perspective shaped our teams approach by reinforcing that every girl had to focus on what their role was, and to work hard on that role to achieve a common goal.”

– Micah Langston (Varsity Volleyball Coach)
