The Winder-Barrow High School volleyball team has slowly, but surely, been building toward this season.
The program, led by coach David Rows, has experienced some growing pains in recent years, but all signs are pointing toward 2015 as being the season when the Lady Bulldoggs challenge for an area championship. Even the coach of the county and area rival concurs.
“Winder-Barrow is going to be tough for anyone to beat this year,” Apalachee High School coach Joey Alfonso said. “Their height is going to make them very hard to beat first off. Second, they got a taste of success last year and they know how to win. David has done a great job in building the program. They’ve been improving every year. I’m not sure we or anyone will be able to hold them off this season.”
WBHS recorded an impressive 31 wins last season and that number could easily be higher during the upcoming 2015 campaign.
“Last season was a confidence builder,” Rows said. “We did lose some seniors but we have some players ready to step in. We have several players with club experience which makes a huge difference. Four freshmen competed with our team this summer and they are ready to play now. We are younger than last year, but I think we are going to be better. We are athletic and skilled.”
