Bumping the ball without error

Dreaming of becoming a great player

 

A young girl aspires to play volleyball with her all

Eyeing a fantastic future, she answers the call

Almost daily it seems, she practices again in the yard

Bumping a volleyball back up on the roof isn’t so hard

This determined and skilled lady moves up in her years

Realizing always that volleyball brings her little fear

As she enters middle school, she plays on her first team

Enjoying the competition makes her face always beam

 

Bumping the ball without error

Dreaming of becoming a great player

 

Her soft hands and calmness make her a skilled setter

Roaming the back row, her ball-hawking is even better

With a purpose, she enters high school and plays a key role

Setting up her teammates with amazing precision—Whoa!

Her teammates rally around her confident leadership

Wearing #9, her steady play leads and rarely slips

Her team charts a perfect season and a trip to State

Falling a bit short, second place will be their fate

 

Bumping the ball without error

Dreaming of becoming a great player

 

The team moves forward with her unselfish play

Becoming a volleyball dynasty even to this day

A sly, confident smile usually masks her competitiveness

Elevating her game and encouraging her team to greatness

Now her team looks more determined than ever before

Bringing their school and town a perfection of scores

Returning to State, the setter and her mates are up to the task

Capturing the school’s very first volleyball State crown at last

 

Bumping the ball without error

Dreaming of becoming a great player

 

The Wildcats add two more trips to State to complete her career

Continuing a rich and winning volleyball tradition without any tears

As her high school career begins its final, exciting year

Tasting defeat so very few times, makes opponents fear

“She hasn’t graduated yet!”—An opposing coach speaks out

Playing in her final State matches, she feels like giving a shout

An incredible volleyball player will no longer pass and roam

Remembering those times of practicing outside her home

 

Bumping the ball without error

Dreaming of becoming a great player
