We generally don’t do much with club volleyball results, in part because there are so many of them and so many other club sports.
But I thought this achievement warrented notice.
The Puget Sound Volleyball Association 14 National team recently won a national qualifier that included competition from around the country. The semifinal victory came against a representative from Hawaii and PSVBA beat a squad from Dallas in the final — avenging a pool play loss from the day before.
The team is coached by Jan Kirk, who retired as head coach at Fife High School at the of 2010 the season after an illustrious career.
Here are the team members along with the high schools Kirk anticipates the girls will attend next fall (they are currently eighth-graders:
Reghan Pukhis, Anne Wright; Alicia Ortiz, Spanaway Lake; Jenna Mullen, Emerald Ridge; Alexis Mcleach, Puyallup; Eva Linden, Fife; Emily Stoppler, Bellevue; Hannah Adam, Olympia; Katrina Blodgette-Baker, Rogers; Gianna Sataraka, Rogers; Maddie Babcock, Bellarmine; and Isabella Zubrod, Puyallup.
