“This team has just truly bought into the fact that they are a team. They are so supportive of each other. It doesn’t matter who’s out on the floor: they’re 100-percent behind each other,” said Berry Head Coach Mika Robinson. “They’re making each other better every day. When it comes time to perform, they’re ready.”
Before the match took place, Berry’s player introductions took place as usual but with an additional twist: each player was announced, in addition to their parents.
“Obviously we owe a huge debt of gratitude to all of our parents for providing us the opportunity to be here, to be able to play volleyball the way that we do and do the things that we do, on a daily basis,” Robinson said. “Being able to honor them is a big deal for us.”
