The Grand Ridge volleyball team concluded their regular season Tuesday night before family, fans and tons of supporters with recognition of their ‘seniors’ prior to the start of the ‘A’ game. Both teams completed the season with perfect 10-0 records. Team spirit between the two squads was alive and visible to all who attended Monday night’s game. ‘B’ team players not only cheered for their older team, Ella Ann Childs sent Sister Arnold off in fashion with a sign that said it all about Sister Arnold!.
Exceeding all dreams and expectations without a single set loss throughout the season was the ‘A’ team. Coach Pat Jones was all smiles following Monday’s games, “A team did not lose a single set all year. I’m not sure the last time that was done.” The ‘A’ team players are: Sister Arnold, Gabby Bellamy, Morgan Dykes, Morgan Edwards, Lily Glover, McKenzie Henson, Kaliah Jones, Keirstyn Jones, Chloe King, Ella Sprouse and Kylie Stephens.
The Grand Ridge ‘B’ team kept the court just as exciting this year and gave the fans a taste of what’s to come, another undefeated season. Rest assured, they took note of the ‘A’ team’s unbeaten status in a single set throughout the season and they will be striving to repeat that next season. Making up the ‘B’ team is: Emily Brown, Ella Ann Childs, Hanna Dean, Addyson Duboise, Serenity Fernandez, Megan Harrison, Jayla Lewis, Gracie O’Neal, Jadyn Riano and Reagan Watkins.
