The Apalachee High School volleyball team has been on the big stage before and coach Joey Alfonso said he hopes his team is ready for the spotlight again.
The Lady Wildcats will enter the 8-AAAAA tournament as the No. 1 seed and will look to secure its spot in the upcoming state tournament as the region tournament gets under way. AHS is set to play Salem Thursday at 5 p.m. The region tournament is at Flowery Branch High School.
Alfonso’s team finished the regular season 34-9 overall and has now posted 30 wins for the second time in three years. During the past three seasons, the Lady Wildcats have registered 92 victories. AHS is also 8-0 against region foes this fall.
