On Tuesday, September 28th, Kayleigh Coleman became the first volleyball player in our school history to have 1,000 career assists. Kayleigh has been a varsity setter since her Freshman year, allowing her to accumulate a large amount of assists. A player is awarded an assist whenever that player sets the ball to a teammate who attacks the ball for a kill. The kill results in the team scoring one point. Congratulations Kayleigh!
