Haley York and Abi Price celebrate a recent victory.

The Varsity Volleyball team defeated Longview Trinity at Tuesday's annual Dig Pink match. The stands were packed and the team did not disappoint.

Sophomore Claire Crow contributed 20 assists and eleven aces while fellow sophomore Abi Price led the team with nine kills on the night and senior Haley York chipped in eleven digs on defense.

The victory put the team at 9-0 in district, securing Lakehill's first District Championship since 2001. The Varsity Volleyball team is going into its last game of the district season looking to achieve something that has never been done in Lakehill history: be the first Lakehill Volleyball team to finish as undefeated District Champs. While other Lakehill teams have captured the District title, none have done so while being undefeated in district play.

The team is currently 22-2 and is riding the momentum of an 18-game winning streak into the last home district game of the season. With a victory, the team will finish the regular season with the best volleyball record in school history.

"During spring practices, I told the girls that we had a good, if not a better, chance of winning a District Championship than last year's team. From that point on, it has been our goal and mindset to finish what we started last season," explained Head Coach Johanna Cayme-Mosley. "I've never seen a group so driven to succeed. I don't have to motivate this team day in and day out. I can honestly say that I think I have the hardest working team in the district. They have earned and worked for everything they have achieved this year."
