DOUGLAS COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL TEAM

  Welcome to the Main Volleyball Page 

Important Dates for 2017:

WGVA Skills Camp- Thank you for all who came out to camp.  We had a good turnout and I think I can say that everyone had fun and learned a lot.  Pictures from camp are posted under Photo Albums, if you want to take a look.  For the rest of the summer, this is what is happening:

Summer Practices:  will begin on Monday, July 10th.  These will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday for the month of July, 9-11 am.  These practices are not mandatory, but highly recommended, especially for varsity.  We will practice skills for an hour and scrimmage for an hour each day.  It's a great time to improve skills and learn team play.  Please try to make as many as you can.

Final tryouts: The teams will be completely picked on tryout days, August 1 and 2.  Final rosters for both teams will be posted here within an hour of practice ending on August 2nd.  Please note that all of this is before school starts.  No positions will be held for anyone who cannot make the tryouts.  You must be present in order to play on the team.  Please keep that in mind when making summer plans.  Games begin a week later, so be ready to play, and let's have some fun!

The following young ladies have been chosen for one of the teams for the Fall 2017 DC Volleyball team.  Please note that many positions are available, to be chosen over the summer and during tryouts on August 1 and 2.  This is only about half of the total positions available.  No cuts have been made at this time.  More time is needed to decide on the other positions and to evaluate new players, so keep working hard over the summer and earn a position!

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.

 Congratulations to 2016 graduate Kennedy Curtis, who has accepted a full volleyball scholarship to Coppin State University!  For those of you not in the know, Coppin State is an HBCU in Baltimore that plays in the Mid-East Athletic Conference (MEAC), a Division-1 school.  We are so proud of you and know that you'll represent DC very well!

 

 

  

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!
