Avalon Volleyball

Avalon volleyball won its district for the second year in a row. They had a bye for the first round and their first playoff game was against Ranger in the Area round last Saturday. They came up short against Ranger but are learning a lot every year.

Volleyball is only 8 years old in Avalon but have reached the playoffs 4 out of those 8 years and are Area Finalists three of those times.

“Our goal this year was to win distinct again and win that Area round. I felt like we had the team to do it, but things did not work out that way. Every year is a learning process with these girls since volleyball is so new, but we are not going to settle for nothing short of winning and also winning in the playoffs. I am very proud of what our girls have accomplished and excited for the years to come because we are so young.” Coach Hernandez
