Lady Guard Volleyball

Four years ago, Headmaster Rod Fletcher and Athletic Director Wally Dawkins made a concerted effort to build a girl’s program that would not only develop the girl’s athletic abilities, but also would foster their character and academic success.

“The Brook Hill Volleyball program is about commitment,” Coach Wise said. “We commit to hard work, we commit to our team, we commit to bettering ourselves, and we commit to Christ.”

The Lady Guard is coming off of a successful 2016 season. They went 20-13 overall finishing tied for 2nd in their district and advancing to playoffs. Nine postseason recognitions were awarded to the Lady Guard for their hard work all season. The Lady Guard Volleyball Program is more than just developing the skills to compete in the game.

“We also strive to instill notable characteristics into our athletes,” Wise said. “We practice the game and play to win, but we also choose to bring glory to God through our success and defeats. Being a Lady Guard Volleyball athlete means COMMITTING to buying into something that is greater than ourselves. We are pumped to get the 2017 season underway and excited for the opportunities God gives us in this upcoming season.”

Lady Guard claim nine postseason recognitions on TAPPS All-District Volleyball awards list:
All-District Defensive Player award: Brianna Young
All-District Setter: Lauren Eden
First Team All-District: Megan Priddy, Kay Kay Smith and Brianna Young
Second Team All-District: Maddie Anthony, Morgan Carpenter, Lauren Eden and Katherine Mondrick
Honorable Mention All-District: Adrianna Kuechle and Jacee Callens
Lady Guard Megan Priddy made the Academic All State team.
