ST. DAVID — That there are aspects of their game that need improvement should make 1A volleyball foes take heed.
The St. David Tigers, under the direction of longtime coach Tylene Miller, are set to make another run for a 1A State Volleyball championship. And it’s a role perennially tough St. David has grown more than accustomed to over the years.
No. 2 St. David, Mogollon enters the week holding down the No. 1 ranking, will battle with league rival No. 15 Valley Union Friday at 1 p.m. in the first round of the state championship tournament in Gym A at Coronado High School in Phoenix.
The Tigers, listed at 22-4 overall on MaxPreps, played through the regular season schedule — excluding tournament games which at times consisted of one or two sets — unbeaten at 17-0 to go with the 10-0 section record.
Following the recent Gopher Get Down Invitational Tournament, Miller indicated the Tigers had some areas in which to improve as the Tigers headed into crunch time.
“We have some things to work on before State, but as long as we keep improving and working hard I see great things happening… I expect a lot from these girls,” Miller said recently.
