With no one transferring or key players quitting the team in the past year, Hardin Valley Academy volleyball returns all of its top players from the program’s first-ever season in 2008.

Kemia Amin, a senior outside “strong” hitter, senior setter Torie Dillon, junior middle hitter Megan Buckentin and junior back row server/defensive specialist Sarah Warner are the top returning players.


“Kemia definitely is a hard worker, she is very diligent,” HVA head coach Rebecca Pierce said. “Constantly wanting to make herself better.

“Torie is definitely a team player, she is constantly encouraging the other girls,” Pierce said. “The one that’s the most vocal on the court. Always trying to get everybody on the same page, really trying to keep everybody together.

”Megan has improved tremendously just over the summer in her middle skills,” Pierce said. “Is just a good influence on the front row.

”Sarah is a team player, she is constantly trying to improve,” Pierce said. “She actually does everything that we ask. An all-around good player, good athlete.”

Pierce said it’s important for her girls to think “versatile.”

“To us, they need to be an athlete, they don’t need to have in their heads that they are just a setter, or that they are just a middle [hitter],” the coach said. “Right now we’re just trying to get some team unity.”

Other players (team picture, left) are juniors Haley Brown, Leah Scruggs, Jessica Painter and Christie Adaline.

Sophomores are Abby Teasley, Payton Walker, Kali Rittenhouse, Kaley Barenkamp, Callie Crane, Hannah Crow, Alex Cave, Mariah Davenport, Desiree Kammerman, Haley Blank and Emily Ledet.

Freshmen are Lia Fiore, Maddie Trent, Allie Gay, Reagan Winstead and Taneisha Crockett.

Assistant coach is Mike Rosenk.
