Bussey on this year’s team: “We are a very young team, but we have a lot of talent. The girls are working hard and things are starting to come together. They are all quick learners. Serving is going well. We are setting the ball up nicely and our hitting gets stronger every day. A banner on our wall, for sure, is our goal. These girls have been playing volleyball for a long time, so I have real high hopes that our hard work and dedication will payoff soon.”

Bussey on the NCTL: “The league will be tough, but we’ll be ready. We’ll just take one game at a time. We are real excited. We open our league by playing Memphis (‘09 South champions) again, and they are always tough. As long as we keep serving well and hustle, we could be able to finish at the top.”
