15: Dear Coach Massey, This year as meant a lot to me, even though I wasn’t able to play because of my knee. You have helped me through tough moments, never gave up on me, and also taught me to be strong on and off the court. You have also helped me improve on my arm swing and blocking. I’ve had many fun moments being apart of this team. Even though you may be tough on us, you always put a smile on our face. You have also taught us that even when we’re down, we still need to have fun and pull together as a team and dominate the game. You’ve taught us that volleyball is not a one player game and that we need to play as a family and that is what we are, “a family”. I’m really looking forward to next year and can’t wait to get started. Thank you so much for this year. You are the best coach I’ve ever had and that will never change! | Outside Hitter | #23 Kaitlyn Carr | XOXO
