I had an amazing week this week and certainly enjoyed myself! I think this group was a lot better than last year and we really brought it! I'm excited to start the season, because I know that with the help you gave us, we will be very successful! Thanks for all you have done! We greatly appreciate it!

Happy Birthday, Coach! I hope it's a good one. Thank you for all the good advice about volleyball and life as well. You and all the girls that helped with camp have made me into a great player and better person. I wouldn't be where I am without you guys! Definitely will see you next summer!!

According to NCAA rules, players from the class of 2010 ARE eligible to participate in a summer high school camp.  This will not get them in any trouble and it will not jeopardize their college volleyball eligibility.
