Did you know that Girls Volleyball is one of the most successful sports at Mount Si High School? In Coach Bonnie Foote’s 12 years as head coach, Mount Si has become a yearly state contender. The 2011 season saw the Wildcats win their third consecutive KingCo 3A/2A championship and then go on to finish sixth in the state tournament, bringing home four state trophies in the last five years.
MSHS volleyball had seven players named to the 2011 KingCo 3A All-Conference Teams, including Sarah McDonald as League MVP. Two seniors recently signed with colleges to continue their volleyball careers at the college level next year. Krista Galloway will be playing for the Oregon Tech Owls and Sarah McDonald received a full scholarship to the University of North Carolina – Charlotte.
Next week, June 4th-7th, the MSHS Volleyball Program is holding a volleyball camp for local 5th-8th girls and boys at Mount Si from 5-8PM. The cost of the camp is $90. Mount Si players will be working alongside coaches instructing campers. The camp is put on as a fundraiser to help cover the costs of summer numerous volleyball camps players attend.
