After accomplishing one of the most successful seasons in school history in 2021, the Woodmen volleyball team is prepared to eclipse that success.

The experiences made last year will play a pivotal role in this team achieving their goals.

“I believe we will have more success this season because last year’s team opened new doors for this year’s team. Last season showed us that we can really do something and make noise as a team,” senior Mya Ayro, hitter, said.

Even with being the smallest school in the Mid-State Conference, this year’s squad is ready to compete with the best and show that they belong.

“We want everyone to know that we aren’t just Greenwood anymore. We have a really strong team with a lot of girls that can do damage this season. We aren’t a team that should be overlooked because we all believe in ourselves and each other,” junior Brooklyn Hanson, defensive specialist and hitter, said.

This year’s squad has set big goals for themselves as they believe they can achieve things that have never been done in the history of Woodmen volleyball.

“For this season, building the bond between our team is very important to me, as well as increasing our win total from last year. I also know that this team is ready to make a run at winning the sectional title, which has never been done before at Greenwood,” senior Sophia Andrews, defensive specialist and hitter, said.

The Woodmen compete tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. in the Franklin Invitational at Franklin.
