Volleyball at Covenant
Our volleyball program has had incredible growth over the last 5 years! This last year we had one returning senior, 5 juniors, 3 sophomores, and some great incoming freshmen, which meant that we started the season with a solid group of players, who had come up through our middle school program and have been playing together for years.
The girls started working out over the summer, coming together for conditioning, skills practice, and working on game rotations. With COVID, we weren’t exactly sure how the season was going to look, and we started our practices a little later than we usually do, but the girls were thankful to be able to be on the court playing the game they love.
Because we weren’t able to play any preseason games, we jumped right into our TAPPS District games. The girls jumped out and started playing hard and playing some tough teams, and walking away with some wins. As the season progressed, the girls improved and continued to win. They continued to work hard and improve their skills, as well as grow together as a team.
Volleyball, as in most team sports, doesn’t get wins with individual skills. Regardless of how good your players are, if they don’t work together as a team, they won’t do well. As the players continued to grow together as a team, they gave it everything they had at every game and ended the regular season with only one loss.
For the first time in Covenant Academy history, our girls volleyball team became District Champions, winning the TAPPS District 7! This put them into the playoffs, and they made it on to the second round before losing to a team from San Antonio. We are looking forward to next year, with all of our players returning, except for one graduating senior. GO PATRIOTS!!
