HENDERSON – A year ago, the Prairie View High School volleyball team won the 4A title in the Skyline League, a first in school history, and advanced to the district tournament, a second in school history. The other trip to the playoffs was in 2006.
The pieces appear to be in place to return to the playoffs again this year and, perhaps, go even farther.
Emily Alexis, the Skyline League’s most valuable player in 2008, Sara Walker, Jordan Ennis, Nisa Garcia, a first-team, all-Skyline League pick last year, and Paige Douglas return to the starting lineup for the ThunderHawks. Coach Amy Walker said the varsity team would consist of a total of seven returning players and two newcomers – Courtney Gallegos, a defensive specialist, and Ciera Borho, a middle blocker.
“Our team’s strength’s this season will include familiarity as they have all but two, played together in years past,” coach Amy Grace said. “Our starting six this season are all very strong athletes who can play all-around on the court. Our weaknesses may include continuing to have young athletes and overall consistency.”
Grace took the opportunity to look ahead to future ThunderHawks’ varsity teams. “All four levels this season will be very competitive,” she said. “We have a freshman team, with all freshman athletes, a C team, which has a combination of all age levels and a JV team.”
