Augusta High School Volleyball –Team of the Month Presented by Visit Wichita

By Matt Browning 

The Augusta volleyball team was chosen the Visit Wichita Team of the Month for October. The Orioles have been ranked in Class 4A for most of the season and defeated McPherson and Hillsboro earlier in the season.

“This has been an extremely successful season for us so far,” Augusta coach Kynnedy Myers said. “I attribute our success this year to our senior leadership. I walked into a program where I was prepared to have to coach the girls on how to be great leaders, and to my surprise I did not have to. The seniors have set a tone for the season on what goals we are aiming to meet and what it will take to get there.” 

 

The Orioles success can be directly attributed to team chemistry and the dedication they have put in.

“Our team chemistry is special, and we do not have to spend valuable practice time learning how to work hard or how to be a good teammate,” Myers said. “We can focus on skills and drills to make us a better volleyball team. I believe that has set us up to have the success that we have so far.”

Myers believes there are no weak links to Augusta’s lineup and every player embraces their role.

Three of the Orioles’ top players are Tommie Schaffner, Avery Reidel and Sydney Scott. Schaffner has a hitting percentage of .474, Reidel takes control of the defense and Scott is the Orioles’ emotional leader.
