Setting Up the Season

Jamie Siegel
The Flower Mound High School Varsity team celebrates their win at Universal Studios. The team traveled to Orlando, Florida for the KSA Events. “Tournament season helps to develop an even stronger bond with the team and also helps our bodies get back in shape and get used to the constant playing everyday during regular season,” varsity player Chloe O’Brien said.

The Flower Mound High School Varsity Volleyball Team won the Mound Showdown, Flower Mound versus Marcus, (3-0) last Tuesday Sept. 12. The team has made a lot of mental progress since the start of the season. 

“We started off this year stronger than last, but with our potential we all knew we still had a lot of work to do,” varsity player Liz Goldspeed said.

Apart from the physical regimen of FMHS volleyball players’ after-school practices, the mentality and attitude of togetherness of the players have influenced their mindsets and goals. 

“We’ve all grown so close to each other, which has helped on the court more than we could’ve thought. We know we have the potential to win State as long as we stay mentally tough and play for each other,” Goldspeed said. 

“It has been a lot of growth mentally more than anything [that has affected] the closeness and camaraderie of the girls,” varsity volleyball coach Jamie Siegel said.

At the start of September, Volleyball also won the 2023 Volleyball Classic hosted by KSA Events in Orlando, and while the team enjoyed the trip, there were times of tension.

“It was stressful at times going there during a hurricane, but… it just brought everybody closer together,” Siegel said.

Despite the physical limitations of the trip, the team still remained strongly connected and supportive of one another. The improvements in the team’s dynamic have been rewarded by their scores.

“We have become such an insanely connected team. We fight like sisters and love like family and we always have each other’s back. We know how to use that on the court as well,” varsity player Chloe O’Brien said.
