up for a hit

Princeton  sophomore setter-hitter Haylie McPherson  (17) goes up for a hit in a game earlier this year. 

PRINCETON — The Princeton Senior High School volleyball team has had to grow through a tough year this year.

The PSHS volleyball team currently sits at 4-22 on the year having gone through a tough season this year. Ron Moreland has been at the head for a young Lady Tigers team that has competed in 39 matches this year. that is the most since Moreland has been coaching at Princeton.

Even though there has been ups and downs with the Lady Tigers this season they feel like the experience will do nothing but make them better in the end.

“The team has worked hard this season,” Moreland said. “This schedule has pushed them in a good way and has challenged them. With the toughness of this season we feel like it’ll prepare us even better for next season.”

Moreland admits that there have been nights where the Lady Tigers have displayed incredible team work and there have been times the Lady Saints have learned to get through certain situations. They have played a ton of teams this season that will make the state volleyball tournament this year and the Lady Tigers believed that has helped give them a glimpse where they want to be as they continue to get better.

“I’m a believer in trial by fire,” Moreland said. “You learn more about yourself and you continue to get better playing teams that are very good rather than teams you may be better than. But I feel like the girls are getting better and they are continuing to learn.”

Through the course of the season Bethany Burks, Haylie McPherson, Samantha Ellison and Raegan Bailey have all done some good things for the Lady Tigers. As the season ends in a sectional matchup the Lady Tigers hope to go into the offseason with some momentum.
