Tift County athletics did something new this year. They started a volleyball program.
When Lori Greene began teaching at Tift County High, she wanted to start a volleyball team. This fall, she got her wish when 72 girls showed up at tryouts.
For the 27 who made the roster, it TMs been a learning experience. There TMve been blowouts and bad matches, but the Blue Devils still scratched out four wins. Not bad with only a few players who have ever played the sport.
I just wanted the girls to have the opportunity to play the sport because it TMs a very good sport. It TMs a very good opportunity for them to have more scholarship offers, Greene said. It just gives them something that they haven TMt had before.
There TMs still a bit more volleyball to be played in Tift County TMs inaugural season. They TMll travel to an area tournament next week.
