Volleyball celebrates together at the Legacy vs. Burleson varsity game.

The Bronco volleyball team completed the season with an overall record of 23-17. The girls placed first in district with a 12-2 record, only losing to Burleson and Timberview.

This season marked the first time Legacy has won district in nine years. The leadership of five seniors and four juniors were the backbone of the team. For junior Brynn Dowd, the seniors were crucial to the success of the team.

“Losing our seniors will be very difficult,” Dowd said. “They have taught us a lot and constantly pushed us.”

Because of their first-place finish, the Broncos faced off against Trimble Tech in the first round of the playoffs. They won with a 3-0 sweep to advance to the next round. The volleyball season came to an end on Nov. 4 after a 3-0 loss to Grapevine High School in the second round. This season provided sophomore Jordan Henderson with her first playoff experience.

“It was extremely exciting to play in my first playoff game,” Henderson said. “It was an experience I won’t forget.”

The team had 15 players named to the All-District academic team. Freshman Katie Brothers were named Co-Newcomer of the Year, and her sister Angie Brothers, 12, made First Team All-District. Dowd made First team All-District as well. Senior Kylie Patton and Henderson represented the Broncos on the Second team All-District while Senior Arianna Mongare named district Offensive Player of the Year.

The Broncos will be hungry to reclaim their district title next season.

“Next year we will bounce back by working harder than ever,” Dowd said. “[We’ll] go all out in practice, in the weight room, and in games.”

Hey, my name is Nicole and I'm a pretty fantastic person if I do say so myself. I like to spend time mountain biking and rock climbing. So if you ride hardtail instead of full suspension I'm sorry. But hey, if you know what that means at least you're out riding.
