It took 28 seasons since the WHS Volleyball Program came into fruition (1988-89) but what a "fun" 28th season it turned out to be. All these young former Lady Knights, now Lady Crusaders who for several years have spent hours and hours on the courts, during the season, during the off-season, whenever - were finally at the final stop - the State 4A Tournament! They're good friends and they were growing up together playing a game they all enjoyed tremendously and almost always with smiles on their faces. The cycle was complete.
In the Fall of 1988, WHS introduced us to their FIRST Volleyball Team - some 28 seasons later, WHS will be introducing themselves to "7" other teams at the State 4A D1 Volleyball Tournament that gets underway this morning in Salina at the Bicentennial Center - here's the action on slate for Friday in the TOP BRACKET (4A - D1):
