ACES: Welcome


Intramural Volleyball on a whole new level!  The ACES have been running strong for 12 years now.  Though our team name, uniforms and roster has changed over the years; some things have remained the same.  Our constant commitment to becoming a unified team, improving our Volleyball skills and having FUN have all managed to withstand the test of time.

The ACES have been very successful over the years.  Unlike other teams, we do not measure our success by our record at the end of the season.  We dare to have our own standards of success.  Setting the bar high and staying the course.  Our success is measured by battling through the 'highs' & 'lows" that come with each season.  By how we gel as a unified team, imrpove our skill sets and grow as athletes & individuals.

It is a rare combination of special people that make the ACES so successful!  The 'Players' who buy into the Team Concept and are willing to give 100% at all times.  The 'Coach' that teaches & manages to tap into the talent (sometimes hidden) of each individual player.  The 'Parents' that are totally supportive of their child, the team as a whole and the coaches philosophies and decision making process.

Returning to this season are:  the 'Awesome Attacking' duo of Aurora & Isabel Alvarez, 'Blocking Beast' Gabi Rima and 'Defensive Daredevils' Laura Gehringer & Amanda Skalka. This a very balancenced and talented group of young ladies.

Newcomers:  Tion Brown, Akyma McWilliams and Corlisiti Patman are sure to add some spark & power to the lineup with their impressive skill sets.

Not returning this season (as they are trying out for their high school teams) are:  Hannah Goodman, Maddie Hayko & Anna Overbeck.  Also leaving the team (to play in the homeschool league) are:  Elyse & Emily Moretensen.  The presence, and leadership, of all these young ladies will be sorely missed when we take to the court.  We wish you the best of luck and hope to see you again next Spring!

I look forward to seeing you on the court!  Remember:  Out Hustle, Out Work, Out Think, Out Play, Out Last!  Go ACES!
