Warrior Volleyball

BLOCK ATTEMPT - Senior Abbie Alderman, 6, of West Montgomery attempts to block a kill against Uwahrrie Charter last season. 


It’s a new season for the West Montgomery Warrior volleyball team and veteran head coach, Stefanie Panzer, knows this will be another challenging season. The Warriors will not have the luxury of height this year, but they will have what any coach would covet, athletes with heart. 

Her four seniors are not accustomed to losing often. They were undefeated as a JV squad in 2016. Last year, all of their seven losses were to schools much larger, Yadkin Valley Conference and tournament champions, Gray Stone, and to Starmount in the second round of the 1A playoffs. 

Coach Panzer typically figures out a way to win, particularly in the conference. In her six years as a head coach, she has only lost 10 conference matches, and they finished second last year with a 14 – 2 conference record.

“Every year brings different challenges,” Panzer stated.
