The Apalachee High School volleyball team keeps making program history this season.
Coach Joey Alfonso’s team won the Area 8-AAAAA title Saturday with back-to-back wins against Gainesville. The Lady Wildcats have now won the regular season region title as well as the tournament championship. AHS will enter the state tournament as a No. 1 seed. State play begins Thursday at Apalachee.
“It’s big for our program,” Alfonso said. “For us to be able to do this means a lot. We’ve competed against several teams with club players and defeated them. We hope the success we’ve enjoyed in recent seasons will continue to help our program grow.”
