This fall season has seen many of Hylton’s sports teams excelling, from football to golf, the season has been going well.

But, the volleyball team in particular has been doing exceptionally well this season, fulfilling all expectations of strength and prowess.

“We have more talent and energy this year than ever before,” said Stephanie Flores, a member of the varsity girls’ volleyball team. “It shows on the court.”  

Since their season has started the team has played against Hylton’s foremost rival, Forest Park High School, twice. Their first game against Forest Park was an away game on September 3rd and their second game was a home game on September 26. They ended up losing both games with scores of 3-0.

However, their season scores have shown that they are improving steadily and ready to take on their opponents in future games. They’ve won more games this season than the last.

“The girls are working really hard this season and have stayed competitive against big rival teams like Forest Park,” said Coach Andrea Testerman. 

Even with the setbacks at Forest Park, the team’s motivation and eagerness to win has since grown and they are ready to fight back.

“We are doing better and working together to pull forward in our season,” said Mikayla Kinsey, a member of the varsity girls’ volleyball team. 

Kinsey has been giving her all for the team this year. She was born with an extra bone in her ankle, and it has been fractured for seven years. She then rolled her ankle and inflamed the tendon. Her surgery to get the bone removed will be in December, but she has been cleared to play in games, and has been putting her best foot forward. 

”I’m just taking things day by day,” Kinsey said.

To support the Hylton Varsity Volleyball team, their upcoming game will be on October 7 at 7:00pm at Battlefield High School.
