Volleyball: Wolves in the hunt
King served as a varsity assistant for the past three seasons under former head coach Brittany Williams, who left Westside over the summer for an opportunity to coach college volleyball at South Carolina State University. The Wolves appeared to have filled the vacancy, but the new coach who was hired changed his mind, leaving the school with a vacancy only days before the first day of practice. A lot of our kids were involved with club volleyball, and I had worked with many of them with summer strength and conditioning. The Wolves also are off to a fast start in District 20-5A, sweeping Carnegie Vanguard 25-7, 25-14, 25-12 to improve to 5-0 in league play. Westside features a top candidate for league most valuable player in senior Robyn Shannon The 5-foot-9 outside hitter is a four-year starter and returning first-team, all-district performer. Goodnight, the younger sister of former Westside football/baseball star Michael Goodnight, is a gifted volleyball player, although she is a middle blocker for her club team. Westside's main defensive specialists are 5-0 senior Yanelis Garcia and 5-3 sophomore Bailey Dunlap However, 5-6 freshman Aliyah Granger and 5-7 senior Annisa Peña have gotten plenty of playing time on the back row.
