Navarre’s volleyball team will be tested right out of the gate. The Raiders take on rival Gulf Breeze Thursday in a District 1-8A showdown on the road. They open the season tonight against Milton. Raiders head coach Michelle Lee said her team is ready for the challenge of playing such a crucial game early in the year.
“I wouldn’t want it any other way,” Lee said. “I want to see us put all of the hard work we’ve put in to the test. It will give us a good feel for where we are as a team.”
Lee enters her third season as the head coach and said this season feels much different than the past two, in part because of how successful the workouts over the summer went for the team.
“The summer training we’ve had, and even the little bit of preseason we’ve had, has been great,” Lee said. “I’m really pleased, and this is the most comfortable I’ve been going into a season since I’ve been here. The girls are excited about the season and I’m excited about it.”
