DOUGLAS COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL TEAM

  Welcome to the Main Volleyball Page 

The Lady Tigers have qualified for the state playoffs for the 4th year in a row, finishing second in Region 5, AAAAAA.  Congratulations to our outside hitter, Taliyah Sumter, who was named to the first team All-Area squad!  Unfortunately, though we gave a great effort, Pope defeated the Lady Tigers in straight sets.  We fought to the end, and made it a closer game than many thought it would be.  Congratulations to a fine end of the season!

 

Front Row: Summer Reese, Taliyah Sumter, Miranda Marr, Paula Vallejo, Carrington Triplett, Molly Gilbert.

2016 Season

Congratulations to the Lady Tigers for qualifying for the state tournament for the third consecutive season!    Although we fell to Greenbrier HS in the first round, the ladies grew up significantly as a team, never gave up, and fought to the end.   Cheers to a successful season!    

Further congratulations are due to Mmachi Okeke, our captain, who has been selected as First Team All-Area!  Mmachi has had an outstanding season, leading the team in both kills and blocks.

The 2015 DC Lady Tiger Volleyball Team

 

      Congratulations to the Lady Tigers, who for the second year in a row qualified for the state playoffs in AAAAAA.  They lost to Lakeside-Dekalb, however, but the year was the most successful in school history.  They won the Douglas County Volleyball Tournament Championship for the first time since the initial tournament in 1999 and finished with a record of 29-13-2.  Congratulations to Maya Jackson for finishing on the First Team All-Area team!  Kennedy Curtis made 2nd team and Mmachi Okeke and Sierra Dubois were honorable mention.  Great season, ladies!

 

 

2014 Season in Review 

The Lady Tigers qualified for the state tournament this year for the first time in school history!  They defeated Tift County in the first round of the state playoffs, 3-0, then traveled to North Gwinnett for a matchup in the Sweet 16.  Unfortunately, the Lady Tigers fell short that night, but what a spectacular way to end a season!  Way to go ladies!  

The Area 3 All-Area Team was announced, and our very own Kennedy Curtis earned First Team Honors, Maya Jackson earned Second Team, and Mmachi Okeke earned Honorable Mention.  Way to go ladies!
