Season overview: Red Bay Volleyball

Elizabeth Scott is another new coach on the volleyball court in Franklin County this year. Scott, a native of Red Bay, where she graduated and played basketball, is looking forward to her new adventure as the Tiger volleyball coach.

“As a first-year coach, I have learned more from them and about them than I ever thought I would,” said Scott. “Their love for volleyball is contagious. They are a group of hard-working girls and are sure to always encourage one another on and off the court.”

Scott looks forward to the upcoming season and believes her team has what it takes to be successful.

“I expect a successful season from my girls. We have worked hard this summer to strengthen ourselves in the weight room and at practice,” said Scott. “I expect the team to give 100% effort in all that we are doing. If the girls can give their all on the court, I know we will come out on top this season.”

Scott said her team needs to concentrate and communicate better to achieve their goals.

“We need to focus on continuing to communicate with each other by calling the ball, talking with each other and helping those who may be out of position,” Scott explained. “Some of my girls have never played together, so our chemistry is something that needs continuous attention at practice to build a bond. I’m excited to get the season started to see how much our practice and effort has paid off.”

Whatever her team’s deficiency is, Scott believes their love of the game will supersede it.

“Our team’s energy and love for volleyball is something that really stands out to me,” said Scott. “They are eager to get practice started each day. Their positive attitudes during practice and our summer games set them apart. They are all encouraging and accepting of each other. They push each other to be better players and hold their teammates to high standards. My girls are competitive and take volleyball seriously on and off the court.”
