Buford— The Buford High volleyball team is looking forward to a push for a region title, with a current record of 10-2 in the region and 16-4 overall.
Head Coach Taylor Roberts is quite happy with what she’s seen from her team so far.
I am very proud of the way my girls have played so far this season. We had a lot of new players this year and had a lot of kinks to work through to get to this point, but they have worked hard to get better each day,” says Roberts. “One of the strengths that my team has is the amount of time these girls have known each other and played with each other. This team is like a family. They support each other and applaud each other’s accomplishments.”
Despite the lofty record, Roberts still sees some areas of her team’s play that she wants to see improved.
“We are working on improving our consistency of attacks while reducing the amount of unforced errors,” she explains.
Buford has a number of players who have been key to the team so far this season, says Roberts.
Those include Hunter Allen, a senior captain outside hitter/setter, Lexie Sullivan, a junior libero, Paige Davis, a junior middle blocker, and Mary Grace Shaw, a junior setter.
Other contributors to the team’s successes so far this season also include Ashley Taylor, Bailee Holden, Sophie Ribelin, Savannah Barnett, Emily Taylor, Avery Milhorn, Sydney Rabon, Hannah Boone, and Anna Beth Allen.
Roberts and her Buford team are now moving forward with one goal still to be met.
“Our goal is to leave it all out on the court every single game for the rest of the season,” she says. “I believe with the right amount of heart and hustle these girls can do anything they set their minds to do.”
