“We’ve got a good group of girls, and we’re getting better each year,” said head coach Shawnda Wills, HHS class of 2009, now in her fourth year of coaching JV and varsity volleyball at Hancock High School.
“I’ve been where they are, juggling school, and sports, and family. We don’t deal with drama. We all work together to pull out wins,” said Coach Wills.
Her assistant coach is dad Rocky Wills, who also coaches baseball at Hancock High.
“Its nice to have dad along for the ride,” said ShawndaWills.
