The start of school also means the start of fall sports for Middle School. There are a record number of girls playing volleyball this year. With nearly 30 athletes for both the Blue and Green teams, it looks to be an extremely promising year for the Middle School program. This year, the program is led by coach and Lakehill alumna Alisyn Schreiber. Coach Schreiber graduated from Lakehill in 2008, but has had a long family history with the school. Her mother Pam graduated in 1976, and her brother Kenny graduated from Lakehill in 2004.
