Coached by Brandi Heydenreich, the Mansfield 14U Velocity volleyball team saw successful tournament play this past weekend on Saturday, January 11th. The girls spiked their way through four other teams at “Volley in the Ville” held in Russellville at the Tucker Coliseum. The team consists of Kaile Sysakyavong, Rachel Johnson, Katelyn Corson, Kynley Simpson, Trinity Triska, Presley Curry, Kaylee Ward, Harlie Fuller, and Shelbie Fuller.
Team Velocity fought their way through three teams, Paris, Fort Smith Juniors, and Alma, during pool play placing 2nd and placed third in the gold bracket. The girls lost in tournament play to Hackett. “We are pretty much a first-year team together. I have four returning players from last year. So to me, it’s pretty impressive that they are doing this well just out of the gate,” exclaims Coach Heydenreich. Team Velocity 14U will compete next on February 8th in the MidSouth Power League in Conway.
