For me, winning state was all I could think about for a long time. It still hasn’t hit me yet that we reached our goal and everything we worked for was worth it. To see all the support we got from Dripping Springs made us want to win it not only for ourselves, but for our community.

I’ve learned so much from being on this team and have a new appreciation for volleyball.  There’s no better feeling than re-watching the last point and knowing that that moment will never be taken away from you. I remember not having any idea what to do with myself after that last ball dropped. I was extremely relieved and instantly full of joy. I’m going to have to have some really great moments in my life to ever top this one.

We’re now working hard and are excited about the future of tiger volleyball. We’re looking forward to continuing the legacy that this year’s team started. I’m so blessed to be apart of this program and all the experiences that come with it!
