This season, there were a few players who stood out to Coach Guest and other teammates as exemplary athletes and leaders. Coach Guest said, “Kampbell [Moore] led by example with her words, while Macey [Hales] led by example on the court. Kampbell  tried to bring everybody up, get them to push during competitive sets. Macey always left it all on the court. Her passion and drive pushed her teammates to work harder for every point.” Freshman player Adalie Phillips agreed, highlighting Kampbell and sophomore Macey Hales as great leaders. “They both set a really positive example for the team.” she said.  Kampbell Moore wrapped up how she felt about the JV volleyball program by saying, “We all love each other and bonded really well together.”
