ST. DAVID — St. David has just over a week remaining before start of the 2019 prep volleyball season and coach Tylene Miller and the Tigers are busy preparing for it.
The Tigers will get plenty of game action in their Sept. 7 opening date at the Morenci Invitational. Games get underway at 8 a.m.
The perennially tough Tigers, playing out of the 1A South Region, are coming off a stellar 2018 season that saw the Tigers finish as 1A State runners up having posted a 20-7 record overall.
Looking to take it a step further in 2019, the Tigers boast a strong and experienced arsenal of returning players in senior hitters Megan Merrill, Jaylin Richardson, Camilla Freestone, Kyra Richardson, Kyla Trejo and setter Jorja Moore. Libero or defensive specialist Brylee Murray will help anchor a strong corps of returning juniors to include Kayla Judd, Sydney Klump and Goldi Merrill.
Miller is assisted by coaches Kayla Stafford and Breanna Tillett.
