Houston Volleyball Academy's 11U girls

Houston Volleyball Academy's 11U girls made their debut at their first club/select tournament, facing off against 22 select teams from Houston, Katy, Woodlands, and surrounding areas. Despite being a new team in the circuit, and playing some tough teams, they showcased their talent, and claimed first place in the Gold Bracket following pool games. Overall, they secured a commendable second-place finish after a tie-breaking third game. The team’s coach is Caitlyn Gaffney. Players include (pictured, back row, from left) Maria Pereira, Mackenzie Erskine, Caitlyn Yearwood, Hensley Grothues, Eliana Kalambo, Carmen Prado, Quinn Smith, coach Gaffney; (front row, from left) Cate Pieper, Grace Cook, Ariella Splenser, Lily Beck, and Karis Lim. Their win is a great start for the team in the competitive volleyball arena.
