2017 COACH'S REPORT:
Our volleyball banquet on Tuesday, November 14, officially ended our 2017 season. All three teams enjoyed success as their efforts in practice paid off. The Freshmen finished with a 10-5 record. The Junior Varsity record was 16-3. The Varsity team finished with a record of 13-4 (30-12 overall and 8-2 in region play) and a second place finish in our region behind Scottsdale Christian. Last season was the first time in 8 seasons where we didn't qualify for state tournament, so the girls were eager to get back on track. We defeated Northland Prep 3-0 in the qualifier, which launched us into the state tournament as an #11 seed. Unfortunately that's where our season ended in a loss to a very talented #6 seed Veritas Prep, who eventually lost in the 2A title match to Scottsdale Christian.
A few highlights from the season:
1) 1st place finish at the Payson Invitational where we beat 2-time 3A state champion, Fountain Hills, not once but twice.
2) A 4th place finish at the 24-team Florence tournament.
3) Qualifying for state tournament
4) Demonstrating Christian character where we went (many compliments from opposing coaches, parents, and officials)
A huge THANK YOU to God for blessing our season. Thanks to all the coaches, parents, score table workers, who all were a part of making our program fun and successful.
Congrats to all the players for their accomplishments and for using their talents to glorify God. We're looking forward to another exciting season of Coyote volleyball next year!
