Lady Tigers

I contracted Covid so I had to delay Largo Middle Volleyball tryouts.  We could not get enough interest for a boys team but for certain that was not the same for the girls.  We must have had 30 or more little ladies trying their hearts out.   It was so hard cutting them but I always left them hope for next year or spring.  We ended up keeping 18, originally my thought was 12, but my assistant coaches, Coach Bim and Coach Christine persuaded me to keep more.  I learned so much from them, they are volleyball fanatics and I coached their son Max several years ago.  Now their daughter Sydney was a incoming 6th grader.  They asked if I needed help, I said "for sure".   We had one week of tryouts and had to play.  I held an extra long tryout to see as many ladies as possible, not good for the short term, but this year is a rebuilding year.  

We ended up losing every game but the final game of the season.   Despite losing we were getting better and by winning the last game it validated our progress.  We have a winter, spring, summer program established so it should be a lot better in the win loss column next year!

Go Lady Tigers!!!
