Varsity coaches Deanna Pettit and Peggy Shelton couldn’t be prouder of the commitment and dedication the varsity players demonstrated daily. The varsity team experienced growing pains with the new coaching staff, new or different position and skill development of players, injuries, and adapting to the new normal of “playing wearing masks and the socially distanced bench.” These student-athletes exemplified the true meaning of representing a varsity team with their willingness to mentor the other Upper School teams as well as the Middle School teams. The team’s unwavering efforts to get better by playing “one more point” in practice proved to be pivotal in their match win against Villa Duchesne. Captains Cece Nourie ’21 and Courtney Shands ’21 lived up to their team’s expectations in representing them as both earned First Team All-District Honors, were nominated to the AVCA All-Region team, and both were selected to First Team All Metro League. Hannah Forsberg ’23 was selected to Second Team All Metro League and Maya Anderson ’23 also received post-season honors being selected to the Second Team All-District and Honorable Mention for the All Metro League. When we take a look back at this season, a very strange season due to COVID-19, we’re very grateful for the opportunity to get to play the game we love and to further develop our skills and enhance our lives with the memories we made.
