Bumping the ball, again and again without error

Dreaming of becoming a great volleyball player

 

A young girl aspires to play volleyball with her all

Setting eyes on her 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, playing volleyball brings her little fear

 

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

Enjoying the competition, making her face always beam

 

Bumping the ball, again and again without error

Dreaming of becoming a great volleyball 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 accurate precision—Whoa!

 

Her teammates rally around her confident leadership

Wearing #9, her unruffled play leads and rarely slips

 

Her team charts a perfect season and a trip to State

Falling just a bit short, second place will be their fate

 

Bumping the ball, again and again without error

Dreaming of becoming a great volleyball player

 

The team moves forward with her unselfish play

Becoming a volleyball dynasty, even to this day

 

A relaxed, confident smile masks her intense competitiveness

Elevating her game, encouraging her team to lofty greatness

 

Now her team looks more determined, than ever before

Bringing its school and town, a perfect season 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, again and again without error

Dreaming of becoming a great volleyball player

 

The Wildcats secure 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 closing, thrilling year

Tasting defeat so very few times, makes opponents fear

 

“Wow, she hasn’t graduated yet!”—An opposing coach winks

Playing in these final State matches, her skills remain in sync

 

An incredible volleyball player, will no longer pass and roam

Remembering those times of practicing, in the yard at home

 

Bumping the ball, again and again without error

Dreaming of becoming a great volleyball player
