The varsity volleyball season is in mid dsitrict play and the team, led by veterans from last year, are trying to work their way back to the state tournament. The new head coach, Rachel Altman, leads the squad with a 24-13 record for the season so far.

“We need this team to have better chemistry,” Altman said. “That will lead us into the state championship match.”

Last year, the Lady Timberwolves made it all the way to the state tournament, only to be beat by Lovejoy High School in the state semi-finals. The team is trying to make it back to that platform as one of the bests with multiple district matches against Hutto, Rouse, Georgetown and others left in the season.

The volleyball team will face Hutto on Sept. 26 in Hutto in a highly anticipated match with two top teams in 5A. Junior Shelby Epley is a key factor to give the T-Wolves an edge in the rest of the eight games this year, and will give them an extra boost to be one of the top teams in playoffs.

“Some strategic goals for the game is to get the middle involved early,” Epley said. “We need to have constant pursuit on every ball and to better the all every chance we get.”

Led by senior stars Alexis Cheatum and Taylor Nunez, this team is currently second in the district behind Rouse, with a 7-1 record so far.  This season, the team specializes in total blocks and scoring aces. Junior Laurel Foster has dominated the assist category, getting more than half of the teams assist thus this year. The T-Wolves will try to continue their fantastic run with key adjustments.

“We will adapt by adjusting our game plan and system to each team will face,” Foster said.
