The Panther volleyball team had a struggling season and as of press time the district record is 3-9 and the overall is 7-10.

The team, comprised of almost all seniors, have been unsuccessful in repeating a playoff appearance two years ago. Even so, the volleyball program is working hard and trying to improve, according to captain Blakely Niles.

“It was just a struggle at first, but as we go on I think it gets a little better,” Niles said.

The volleyball team had its moments, like beating Conroe 3-2 on the road during preseason for the first time ever. Niles said the team felt great after the win and that it was a good start.

“We kind of battled between,” Niles said. “We kind of played a little down. But it felt really good to get the first win of the season.”

Head Coach Stephenson has high expectations for Niles and the rest of her eight seniors playing in the varsity team, whether it’s inside or outside the court.

“I expect them to lead,” Stephenson said. “Show the rest of the girls in the program what it means to be a varsity athlete.”

With a lot of seniors leaving, the underclassmen on the team have to step up and fill the vacant spots, according to sophomore Marissa Hanson.

“I expect the JV girls to pull up and be motivated to go back and play the next season knowing we have a lot of spots to fill.”

Chemistry between the volleyball girls is stronger this year than past years, according to junior varsity captain Itzela Darkenwald.

“We have some rough days, but in the end we’re all there for eachother and support one another” Darkenwald said.

The team completed its last game on Friday, but scores were not available as of press time.
