“(It was an) amazing season the Lady Devils had,” said Britney Melton, GCHS volleyball coach, in a Facebook post. “We took eighth this year and (were) able to get a ton of experience for a young group of kids. I know we are going to do great things in the future, along with bring back some school spirit.”
